Brad Hawpe hit a go-ahead home run, Aaron Cook earned his career-high 10th win, and the Colorado Rockies hung on to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-3 today.

The White Sox loaded the bases against Brian Fuentes in the ninth on Juan Uribe's leadoff single and two-out walks by Jermaine Dye and Jim Thome. With two outs, Joe Crede hit a pop fly to left that Matt Holliday nearly dropped as he avoided colliding with shortstop Carlos Quintanilla.

Holliday made a barehanded catch, cradling the ball against his chest and the Rockies escaped with their eighth win in 11 games.
