Kyle Freeland flourishes, Trevor Story homers as Rockies’ home losing streak ends against Nations

Kyle Freeland delivered an absolute gem for his final home start of the lost Rockies season.

Colorado broke its five-game losing streak at Coors Field on Tuesday with a 3-1 win over the Nationals. Freeland placed Washington in seventh place – throwing strikes on 91 of 62 pitches – before he walked into his lone earned run of the night.

Trevor Storey blasted a 475-foot solo homer in the fifth to help bring the Colorado offense to life.

The Rockies (72-85) closed their final homestand of the season on Wednesday with an opportunity to secure their three-game series against the Nationals.

Freeland closed the nationals on Tuesday with soft contact – 15 forced ground/fly balls – and worked out of constant early traffic. Freeland then retired to the Nationals on just 11 pitches in the fifth. But trouble came with two outs in the seventh when Freeland loaded the bases and went home to Yadil Hernandez.
