Trevor Story homered for the Rockies to score their lone run in the loss. The series concludes on Sunday.

PHILADELPHIA — Zack Wheeler steadied the slumping Phillies with eight strikeouts and Bryce Harper homered to lead Philadelphia to a 6-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night. 

Odubel Herrera’s two-RBI bunt double and Jean Segura’s solo homer helped the Phillies snap a four-game losing streak that had them fading from the NL East playoff race. 

The Phillies entered 4½ games behind first-place Atlanta in the NL East. 

Harper hit his 31st homer. Brad Miller hit a pinch-hit homer. Wheeler won his 13th game. 

Trevor Story homered for the Rockies to score their lone run in the loss. The series concludes on Sunday.
