DENVER (AP) Ryan McMahon homered twice and had five RBIs in his return to the lineup and Kyle Freeland pitched six scoreless innings as the Colorado Rockies beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2 Thursday night.
McMahon had the first multi-homer game of his career and helped the Rockies snap a five-game home losing streak. Colorado has won four in a row overall after dropping eight straight.
J.T. Realmuto homered and Cesar Hernandez had three hits for Philadelphia.
McMahon had been out of the lineup since suffering a strained left elbow against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 5. He missed 10 games, but came back strong to help Freeland get his eighth win in his last nine decisions at Coors Field.
Freeland (2-3), who left Saturday's start in San Francisco with a blister issue, allowed just two hits and didn't walk a batter. He was headed for a no-decision when McMahon hit a three-run homer off Philadelphia starter Zach Eflin (2-2) in the bottom of the sixth to give the Rockies a 3-0 lead.
Realmuto cut the lead to 3-2 in the top of the seventh with his third home run of the season, but McMahon's 416-foot blast into the Rockies bullpen in the bottom of the inning made it 6-2.
Tony Wolters had three hits and Nolan Arenado two for the Rockies.
TRAINER'S ROOM
