Pirates 2, Rockies 1

PITTSBURGH — The Pirates' Starling Marte and John Jaso had two hits each and made fine defensive plays to help Gerrit Cole navigate through seven shaky innings. Cole scattered 10 hits and a walk as he won his second straight start. David Freese snapped a tie at 1 with a two-out single in the sixth to give the Pirates their fifth win in six games and eighth straight over the Rockies. Mark Melancon worked around two singles in a scoreless ninth for his 14th save in 15 opportunities.
