They got two more in the third when Profar led off with a double and scored on C.J. Cron’s two-out double. Cron came home on McMahon’s double.

Philadelphia added a run in the eighth inning when Clemens doubled with two outs and scored on a single by Garrett Stubbs.

Colorado got the run back in the bottom of the inning when Cron scored on a groundout by Ezeqiuel Tovar.
