DENVER (AP) — Kyle Freeland efficiently pitched into the seventh inning before running into trouble, Trevor Story lined a long solo homer and the Colorado Rockies snapped a five-game Coors Field skid with a 3-1 win over the Washington Nationals.

Freeland was cruising along until the seventh, when he loaded the bases and walked in a run with two outs to make it 2-1. He turned the ball over to Tyler Kinley. The Rockies reliever got Alcides Escobar to fly out and end the threat.

Patrick Corbin tied a season-high with nine strikeouts as he threw six innings.
