DENVER — This was not the home debut Jonathan Sanchez was hoping for, a short-lived start in which he was shelled for six runs before the fifth inning had concluded.

The 7-2 loss to the Reds on a cloudy Sunday afternoon, the sixth time the Rockies have been swept this season, was not the way the club wanted to begin its nine-game homestand, either. The loss in front of 29,430 at Coors Field pushed Colorado to a 20-32 record at home (.384 winning percentage), a franchise low.

With Sanchez’s line of work in 4 1/3 innings, the ERA of the Rockies starting rotation swelled to 6.34, which would be tied for the second-worst in Major League history (1939 St. Louis Browns). The starting staff of the 1999 Detroit Tigers combined for a 6.64 ERA. MORE>>>
