DENVER - Marco Scutaro's RBI single in the 11th inning gave Colorado an 11-10 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday after the Rockies squandered a seven-run lead.
Jonathan Herrera doubled with one out off Craig Stammen (3-1). After pinch- hitter Jason Giambi walked, Dexter Fowler hit a fly ball to deep center that was caught by Bryce Harper. Herrera tagged up and took third on the play with pinch- runner Christian Friedrich advancing to second.
Scutaro, who was 13 for 68 with runners in scoring position, then completed a seven-pitch at-bat with a single to right-center.
Adam Ottavino (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings and struck out five, including all three batters in the 11th.
Harper's homer in the ninth off Colorado closer Rafael Betancourt tied the score and sent the game into extra innings.
