MIAMI (AP) - Jordan Pacheco had three hits, Jordan Lyles won in his Colorado debut as the Rockies held on for a 6-5 victory over the Miami Marlins Wednesday night for their first win of the season.

Charlie Blackmon and Michael Cuddyer each had two hits and an RBI for Colorado, which lost the first two games of the season-opening series.

Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs, all after Miami fell behind 6-1.

Rockies two-time All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez left the game in the sixth inning as a precaution because of dizziness.

Lyles (1-0) was acquired in an offseason trade the sent Dexter Fowler to the Houston Astros. Lyles allowed four runs and five hits in five innings while striking out five and walking one.
