Rockies 10, Astros 3
Garrett Atkins took Astros starter Wandy Rodriguez deep twice on Thursday. (Pat Sullivan/AP)
If a team collects a single, double, triple and homer in an inning, it's in good shape -- and that's exactly what the Rox did in the third, with Garrett Atkins' two-run shot accounting for half of the four-run frame. Atkins went deep again for good measure, with Ryan Spilborghs and Brad Hawpe getting in on the home run fun.
