Coors Field, Denver, Colorado
• Summary: Unable to hold a 2-0 lead, Roger Clemens failed in his bid for his 350th career win, allowing four earned runs and seven hits as the Yankees lost to the Rockies. Colorado's win gave them a three-game sweep over New York.
• Unsung hero: Colorado starter Rodrigo Lopez allowed two runs, both earned, on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings.
• Figure this: New York scored just five runs in three games at Coors Field in falling 10½ games behind Boston in the AL East. The last time the Yankees visited Colorado, in 2002, they set a stadium record by scoring 41 times in a three-game slugfest.
• Quotable: "This was just hopefully a pothole that we just didn't like very much. But I don't think we have any doubts on what kind of team we are right now. I think we just hit a bad spot." -- Yankees manager Joe Torre

Rockies 4, Yankees 3
Clemens has struck out at least one batter in 200 consecutive starts, the third-longest streak in the majors behind Pedro Martinez's 293 and Javier Vasquez's 236, according to Elias Sports Bureau. ... Barring any changes, Clemens will get another shot at win No. 350 in Baltimore next week.
