When the Rockies arrived Tuesday to eight inches of snow layering Coors Field, the idea of playing two games seemed preposterous. Snow shovels and a late-arriving storm provided a window to complete a doubleheader in conditions more suited for penguins than players.

After a decisive win in the opener, the Rockies overcame a six-run deficit, and Jordan Pacheco delivered a walk-off single in the 10th inning in a 9-8 victory.

After a walk to Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer's hard shot off David Wright's glove that was ruled an error, Pacheco drove a single to right field.

The rally was set up in the eighth. Michael Cuddyer hit a high hopper to shortstop Ruben Tejada, who threw wildly to first to score two runs, tying the score. It was Tejada's sixth error of the season, more than eight major-league teams.

Turning point. Mets closer Bobby Parnell, summoned for a four-out save, didn't bother to hold Carlos Gonzalez at first base in the eighth. Gonzalez stole and scored on Cuddyer's groundball to Tejada. Gonzalez was on first because he singled to left with the Mets using the shift against him.

On the mound. Jeff Francis has delivered back to-back poor outings. He's allowed 15 runs, including 10 earned, in his last six innings. In San Francisco, his command was poor. Tuesday, poor defense created issues, but Francis was unable to make pitches to limit damage.
