DENVER – Trevor Story homered and drove in four runs, Charlie Blackmon also connected and the Colorado Rockies beat the Seattle Mariners 10-7 on Friday night.

Tony Wolters had three RBIs for Colorado, which won its third straight.

Both teams used emergency starters, but neither made it through five innings. Seattle’s Christian Bergman (0-1), a former Rockies pitcher, gave up five runs in 4 1/3 innings and left during Colorado’s four-run fifth.

Colorado righty Jeff Hoffman was called up to start for Antonio Senzatela, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a blister on the middle finger of his right hand. He allowed three runs on eight hits in 3 1/3 innings and left after allowing an RBI single to Bergman that made it 4-3.

The Rockies took a 4-2 lead in the third on Story’s two-run homer, his 19th, and broke it open in the fifth. Gerardo Parra and Ian Desmond had back-to-back RBI singles and Wolters had a two-run single to make it 8-3.

Story added a two-run double in the sixth to extend the lead to 10-3.

Harrison Musgrave (1-1) pitched three innings to get his first career win but ran into trouble in the seventh. He walked two and gave up an RBI single, and Denard Span had a two-run triple later in the inning as the Mariners cut the deficit to 10-7.

Wade Davis tossed a clean ninth for his 26th save.
