Chris Iannetta homered and drove in three runs and Ubaldo Jimenez pitched seven strong innings to lead the Colorado Rockies to a 5-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night.

Jeff Baker was 2-for-3 with two doubles and two runs for the Rockies, who snapped a four-game losing streak. Brian Fuentes struck out the side in the ninth for his 15th save this season and 100th of his career.

Jimenez (5-9) struck out four and retired 11 of the last 12 batters he faced.

Paul Maholm (6-6) struck out seven in six innings for the Pirates but lost for the first time since May 20.

Garrett Atkins' one-out double in the sixth tied the game at 3, and one pitch later Iannetta hit his 10th homer to make it 5-3.
