Márquez roughed up as Rockies skid hits four

Nolan Arenado homered and Ryan McMahon added two of his own, but it wasn’t enough as Germán Márquez gave up 10 runs in Colorado’s 10-8 loss to Houston on Thursday.

Colorado’s offense finally came alive on Thursday afternoon at Coors Field, unfortunately No. 1 starter Germán Márquez had his worst outing of the season as the Rockies lost 10-8 to the Astros.

Márquez gave up 10 runs on 10 hits in five innings of work as his record dropped to 2-4 on the season. The Rockies are now 13-12 as they begin a seven-game road trip, with three games against the Dodgers starting today (7:40 p.m., AT&T Sports Net) and then a four-game series against the Diamondbacks beginning on Monday.

On the offensive side of things Ryan McMahon, Nolan Arenado and Sam Hilliard all had big games for Colorado in the series finale against Houston. McMahon homered twice and drove in four runs, Arenado went 2-for-5 with a home run and a double and Hilliard went 4-for-5 in the losing effort.

Arenado has been working hard to attempt to break out of his slump and maybe Thursday’s game will be the start of the turnaround for Colorado’s All Star third baseman.

“Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do. We have only like [35 games] left. Not a lot. I just have a hard time going home not trying to figure it out.”

Arenado said about how he’s been dealing with his inconsistent hitting so far this season.
  • Righty Jon Gray (1-2, 5.74 ERA) takes on the Dodgers’ Walker Buehler (0-0, 5.21 ERA) in the opener of a three-game series tonight at 7:40 at Dodgers Stadium.
  • Rockies’ top prospect Brendan Rodgers is confident that he’ll be able to make a quality impact with the big league club now that he’s getting the chance to play again.
  •’s Nick Groke wrote about how the Rockies’ TV crew has been rethinking its broadcasts this season as they all deal with working in makeshift studios and everything else that has changed this season.
  • Before Thursday’s game the Rockies played utility man Chris Owings on the 10-day IL and recalled infielder Josh Fuentes. Colorado also reinstated catcher Elias Díaz from the restricted list.
