Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Donovan Solano capped a four-run ninth inning with a two-run homer and the Miami Marlins held off the Colorado Rockies, 5-3, in the finale of a four-game series at Coors Field.

Giancarlo Stanton smacked an RBI double and Ed Lucas knocked in a run after Rob Brantly crossed the plate in the eighth to break a scoreless tie as the Marlins captured three games of this four-game set.

Dan Jennings (1-1) pitched a perfect seventh in relief of Nathan Eovaldi, who tossed six innings of scoreless ball. Kevin Slowey surrendered three runs -- two earned -- in the ninth, but Steve Cishek closed the door to pick up his 20th save.

The Rockies only had three hits until the ninth. Michael Cuddyer, Wilin Rosario and Nolan Arenado each drove in a run during the final frame, but Jonathan Herrera hit into a game-ending double play.

Adam Ottavino (0-2) was tagged with the loss after allowing the go-ahead run to score in the eighth on a wild pitch.
