The Phillies ended a five-game losing streak by dropping the Rockies on Saturday night at Coors Field. Vance Worley held Colorado to two earned runs on eight hits in 6 2/3 innings of work while opposing starter Jeremy Guthrie surrendered four earned runs on seven hits through just 4 2/3 innings. Philly opened the contest with an RBI single by Chase Utley and a three-run shot by National League All-Star Carlos Ruiz to give the Fighting Phils an early four-nothing lead. Willin Rosario pulled the game within one with his three-run home run in the eighth, but Shane Victorino's triple extended the lead and Chase Utley plated Victorino for his second RBI of the night as the Philles dropped the Rockies, 8-5.
