DENVER (AP) Jorge De La Rosa tossed six scoreless innings, Todd Helton doubled and scored a run, and the Colorado Rockies held on beat the Miami Marlins 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Michael Cuddyer reached three times and Rex Brothers picked up his sixth save in seven chances with a scoreless ninth.

Miami entered the series having not scored in 37 innings, but it is the Rockies who have struggled for runs in the first three games. They managed one Monday, two against Jose Fernandez on Tuesday and two more against Jacob Turner on Wednesday.

De La Rosa (10-5) made sure the two runs would stand up with another strong performance, and the bend-not-break bullpen helped Colorado snap a two-game skid.
