Hampson homers, triples as Rockies beat Reds 9-6


DENVER — Garrett Hampson led off the first inning with a triple, one of 15 hits for Colorado, and the Rockies spoiled Wade Miley’s encore to his first career no-hitter with a 9-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Miley (4-3) was roughed up one start after holding the Cleveland Indians hitless on May 7. His bid for consecutive no-hitters ended on his second pitch when Hampson tripled. He later scored on Miley’s throwing error on a pickoff attempt.

Hampson also singled and homered, while Charlie Blackmon and Yonathan Daza had three hits apiece to back a solid outing by Colorado starter German Márquez.

The Rockies scored four times in the third on five hits and a walk and chased Miley after three more hits to start the fourth.

The left-hander gave up eight runs on 11 hits and struck out five in three-plus innings, his shortest start of the season.

Márquez was sharp before allowing a two-run homer to Jonathan India in the seventh. The right-hander was removed after walking Alex Blandino.

Márquez (2-4) allowed four runs on eight hits and struck out eight in six-plus innings.

Hampson hit a solo homer in the seventh before Eugenio Suarez launched a two-run shot off Yency Almonte in the top of the eighth.

Daniel Bard pitched the ninth for his fourth save.

Blackmon exited for a pinch-runner in the fourth, but no reason for his departure was announced.

Daza drove in three runs and Josh Fuentes had two hits and two RBIs for Colorado.
