DENVER (AP) -- The blasts returned to Coors Field long before the fireworks.
• The Rockies overcame a nine-run deficit for the first time in franchise history.
• Colorado's six homers tied a team record for home runs at Coors Field.
• Matt Holliday (10, 11) recorded his 10th career multi-homer game and his third career grand slam.
• It was Florida's 262nd consecutive game without pitching a complete game, setting an MLB record.
• The 35 combined runs set a Marlins franchise record.
• It was the second time in team history the Marlins allowed six homers in a game.
• The 35 combined runs is by far the most in the majors this season.
• There have been only three games with 25 combined runs this season: Rangers/Yankees, Rangers/Tigers and Rockies/Phillies.

17 Not Enough
The Marlins led by as many as nine Friday. The lead and, eventually, 17 runs failed to hold up. Colorado stormed back from a 13-4 deficit to put Florida in a not-so-elite club -- 17-run losers. Here's a look:
The top four hitters in Colorado's lineup -- Spilborghs, Clint Barmes, Holliday and Atkins -- were a combined 16-for-22 with five home runs and 13 RBIs. ... The Rockies placed ailing first baseman Todd Helton (back) on the 15-day DL and recalled power prospect Joe Koshansky from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
