Charlie Blackmon hit two doubles and a triple as the Rockies ended a five-game losing streak.

PITTSBURGH — Charlie Blackmon got three extra-base hits and keyed a two-run rally in the ninth inning that sent the Colorado Rockies past the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Sunday afternoon. 

Blackmon hit two doubles and a triple as the Rockies ended a five-game losing streak. They were shut out in both games of a doubleheader against Pittsburgh on Saturday. 

After Pirates closer Richard Rodriguez walked Ryan McMahon with one out in the ninth, Blackmon hit an RBI double off the wall in center field to make it 3-all. 

Blackmon scored the go-ahead run on a two-out single from Matt Adams.

Colorado is now 4-22 on the road this season.
