“We all want to win, but for me it was one of my personal goals,” Kuhl said. “And not just a full game, but just a long time in, time out.”

Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer and the Rockies handed Tyler Anderson (8-1) his first loss in 12 starts and two substitutions this season. Chris Bryant went 1 out of 4, returning to the lineup after being out for over a month due to lower back strain.

Cool (5-5) was sharp after giving up 11 runs in 14 1/3 innings in his previous three starts. He struck out five and passed the batter in the longest outing of his career.

His previous best was 7 1/3 innings against Cincinnati on April 30.

“It was amazing,” Iglesias said. “He and (catcher Elias) Diaz were linked. He was very good at throwing the ball against a good squad.”

Cool allowed just two singles in eight innings and one was wiped out on a double play. Gavin Lux led ninth with a double, but was stuck in second place.

When the center fielder Jonathan Daza caught Freddy FreemanTo end the game, which only lasted 2 hours and 19 minutes, Kuhl clenched his fist and hugged Diaz.

“Finally, it’s time to celebrate this achievement,” he said.

It was the 27th individual shutout in striker-friendly Coors Field history.

“You don’t see that in every game,” said Colorado manager Bud Black. “That doesn’t happen. Well, that’s impressive.”

Bryant, who had not played since May 22, finished with a four-at-bat single. He took off on the warning track in right field for the first time at the plate and singled his next out.

Rockies scored first CJ Kronan RBI single and added another run in second on Diaz’s single.

Iglesias doubled the lead by hitting his first home run of the season in six.

Anderson allowed four runs and 10 hits in six innings.

Roberts was selected to coach NL All-Star manager Brian Snitker of the Atlanta Braves at a showcase the following month in Los Angeles. Roberts, NL manager of the last three All-Star Games, is thrilled about the role.

“There is no stress. I’m looking forward to it. Even if we don’t win the game in the National League, it’s not on my shoulders,” he said. “I have 0-3. I think that basically you can be a fan. You have the opportunity to be close to the best players and watch their best performances. So it’s something I don’t take for granted and I will enjoy it as a coach and as a fan.”


The 38,706 fans at Coors Field drew applause when photos of Colorado Avalanche players skating with the Stanley Cup on the big screen Sunday night in Tampa, Florida.

The Colorado defeated the Lightning 2-1 in Game 6 to win the third Stanley Cup title in franchise history and the first since 2001.
