Rockies slug past Phillies

Nolan Arenado, Michael McKenry and Ben Paulsen each hit solo home runs in Colorado's 5-2 win over Philadelphia.

PHILADELPHIA -- Nolan Arenado, Michael McKenry and Ben Paulsen each homered Saturday, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 5-2 victory over the slumping Philadelphia Phillies.

Billy Butler (3-5) tied his career high by going six innings, allowing one run and four hits. He struck out three and walked one in an emergency start, helping the Rockies win for the sixth time in seven games.

Cesar Hernandez homered and Ryan Howard had an RBI double for Philadelphia, which lost its sixth straight and fell a season-worst 13 games under .500.

Jorge De La Rosa was scheduled to start for the Rockies, but the left-hander was scratched Saturday morning because of a cut on his left middle finger that cost him his second straight start.
