Pacheco's walkoff single wins it for Rockies to sweep double header

By  | 

DENVER -- Jordan Pacheco singled home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning and the Colorado Rockies rallied from a six-run deficit for a 9-8 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night to sweep a frigid doubleheader.

Pacheco's sharp single through the right side of the infield brought in Carlos Gonzalez, who walked. Rockies players jumped out of the dugout and mobbed Pacheco after he touched first base.

Rafael Betancourt (1-0) pitched a scoreless 10th to earn the win. Greg Burke (0-1) took the loss on a long day of chilly baseball. The temperature at first pitch for the nightcap was 36 degrees.
