PHILADELPHIA -- Charlie Blackmon put on a power display against the Phillies unlike any player before. Still, the Rockies couldnt get a win in the three-game series.Blackmon homered twice to give him five for the series, but Jimmy Paredes singled, doubled, homered and drove in three runs and the Philadelphia Phillies held on to complete a three-game sweep with a 7-6 victory Sunday.Blackmon became the first Rockies player ever to hit five homers in a three-game series and the first player to do it in a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park, which opened in 2004.It was fun to watch, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. When a guy gets in a zone like that, its pretty amazing.He is batting .548 with eight homers and 14 RBI in his last nine games.If you play baseball long enough, eventually youre going to get hot, Blackmon said. Im grateful Im seeing the ball, but Im not going to get too excited.Nick Hundley added three hits and a pair of RBI for the Rockies, who have lost three in a row and seven of eight. Hundleys two-out single in the ninth pulled the Rockies within a run, but Jeanmar Gomez got Gerardo Parra to pop out to center for the final out with the tying run on third base for his 31st save in 34 chances.Severino Gonzalez (1-2) gave up one run on two hits in two innings in relief of starter Adam Morgan, who was injured in the fourth inning.Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood (10-8) didnt record an out against any of the four batters he faced in the frame, leaving after giving up six runs -- four earned -- on six hits with four strikeouts and five walks in four-plus innings. The loss was the first on the road this season for Chatwood, who entered 6-0 with a 1.30 ERA away from Coors Field.More concerning for Chatwood was his back.Chatwood said he experienced upper back tightness similar to that which landed him on the disabled list from June 19-July 5. He wasnt able to throw his fastball away to right-handers or inside to lefties, or finish on his breaking ball. Hes unsure whether hell make his next start, and it will depend on results of further tests Monday.It was kind of tight throughout, Chatwood said. Its hard when youre pitching hurt. The game is hard as it is.The Phillies scored three runs in the fifth to break a 3-all tie. Freddy Galvis hit the go-ahead RBI single, Paredes doubled home a run and Cesar Hernandez had an RBI single to give the Phillies a 6-3 lead.SLOPPY PLAYOn a hot, humid afternoon, the teams played sloppy baseball by combining for five errors, a wild pitch, a balk and a hit batter. There also was a botched tag and bobbled ball that resulted in a run for each team.Nolan Arenado had a pair of errors and Chatwood and Daniel Descalso had one each for Colorado. Odubel Herrera dropped a ball in center field for Philadelphias lone error.Certainly not clicking, but guys never quit, Weiss said. We still were fighting to the last out.SUPER SLIDEThe Phillies also had a miscue in the third inning that wasnt scored an error when Hernandez failed to apply the tag on Blackmon at second base after a throw from left field beat Blackmon with time to spare. Second-base umpire Gary Cederstrom called Blackmon out, but replays showed Hernandez never touched Blackmon.Blackmon avoided the tag with a nifty slide in which he kicked his legs away from Hernandez.Asked how to describe it, he said, Like a ninja spiderman.STREAK SNAPPEDCarlos Gonzalez struck out swinging as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning, ending his major league-leading 19-game hitting streak.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Gonzalez has been battling a left ankle sprain. He was out of the starting lineup after starting Saturday nights game, but said he didnt suffer a setback and the club thought it best for him to rest his ankle on a day game following a night game.UP NEXTColorado returns home for the start of a six-game homestand that begins Monday night for the first of three against the Nationals.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Will Muschamp had no worries about sending Elliott Fry out for the longest field goal of his career. Even though this was the coachs first game with South Carolina, he had seen the kicker connect repeatedly in clutch situations.Fry kicked a career-long 55-yard field goal with 35 seconds left, and the South Carolina Gamecocks rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to beat Vanderbilt 13-10 Thursday night in Muschamps debut as head coach.I had total confidence, Muschamp said.So did senior quarterback Perry Orth.Ive been here the same amount of time as Elliott, Orth said. Ive seen him make those in practice. Hes made a few clutch kicks in games. I knew if we got the ball close to the 35 and in, wed have a chance.Muschamp started Orth at quarterback and also played freshman Brandon McIlwain. But it was Orth who went back into the game in the third quarter and threw for 152 yards rallying the Gamecocks to their eighth straight victory over Vanderbilt in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams.Vanderbilt now is 0-3 in season openers under coach Derek Mason, though his Commodores did manage to score an offensive touchdown in the first half. But Tommy Openshaw missed a 45-yard field goal wide left with 3:44 left, and Vandy turned it over on downs with 14 seconds left.Every decision we made will be questioned, Mason said. The bottom line is we didnt win this game. Now we have to get back to next week and play MTSU.Fry also kicked a 48-yard field goal in the third quarter, and Deebo Samuel atoned for a fumbled punt in the first quarter by scoring an 8-yard TD on an end-around with 7:30 left. Fry had total confidence he could connect from 55 after barely coming up short from 62 in warmups.I knew I could hit it, said Fry, whose previous long was 52 yards.TAKEAWAYSSouth Carolina: The second half was a complete turnaround from the first with the Gamecocks nearly pinning themselves deep on the opening kickoff before officials ruled the returner had knelt down for the touchback. McIlwain took over at the beginninng of the second quarter after Orth managed 23 yards of offense in the first.dddddddddddduschamp said the plan coming in had been to get McIlwain into the game early. But McIlwain lost a fumble, so the coach went back to Orth. The senior was 6 of 8 for 117 yards in the second half as the Gamecocks gained 220 yards on offense.Vanderbilt: The Commodores got their hands on lots of passes defensively but couldnt pick off even one despite that being an area of focus this season. They forced two fumbles but couldnt get off the field in the second half.COOPERS REPLACEMENT: The Gamecocks might have been wondering who would replace Pharoh Cooper, now with the Los Angeles Rams in the NFL. Freshman Bryan Edwards did his best to step up, pulling in catch after catch. His best was a 43-yarder, and he finished with eight receptions for 101 yards in his first game. Hes that kind of talent, and hes going to be huge for us the rest of the season, Orth said.QB ISSUESSouth Carolina knew it had questions at quarterback with Muschamp unable to pick between his trio. Mason had said repeatedly before the opener that Kyle Shurmur was his starter with Wade Freebeck the backup. But Vandy brought in Freebeck the drive after the Commodores scored a TD to go up 10-0. Freebeck was in for two consecutive drives and managed 1 yard over six plays. The switch had fans wondering what happened and was reminiscent of quarterback struggles in recent years.It was predetermined, Mason said. We needed to get Wade a series or two ... Kyle needed to find more rhythm. He didnt have rhythm. We needed to make some plays. We wanted to find momentum.UP NEXTSouth Carolina: The Gamecocks visit Mississippi State, a team theyve beaten seven straight games, on Sept. 10.Vanderbilt: The Commodores host Middle Tennessee looking for a second straight victory over a school 40 miles away. MTSU won three straight before Vanderbilt ended that skid a year ago. ' ' '
