DENVER -- It looks like 2007 all over again at Coors Field.
The Rockies have won 15 of 16 overall. Two years ago, the Rockies suddenly went on a similar run to reach the World Series.
"That's an incredible win right there, and incredible win," manager Jim Tracy said. "We obviously had to do some very special things to win."
"There is a belief in this clubhouse we show up every day expecting to win," he said.
The Rockies improved to 17-5 since Tracy took over for Clint Hurdle on May 29.
"We're doing some great things," Helton said. "We're playing well, pitching deep into the game and getting hits."
"This was a tough loss, but we've already had a lot of tough losses this year," Pittsburgh manager John Russell said. "We swung the bats better tonight, but unfortunately our bullpen couldn't hold them."
"Those things happen when you're going up against a hot team," he said.
"I've not managed a club that had an eight hole hitter in the lineup that can hit a baseball that far," Tracy said of Iannetta. "I've not managed a club that had an offense that's performing and as deep as this one is when you have an offense like that it gives you an opportunity to come back in a situation like we were in tonight."
"He threw me a fastball, the same pitch he threw the pitch before," Helton said.
Chavez acknowledged as much.
"I tried to come back inside with a fastball," Chavez said. "But I got it up and like the good hitter he is, he hit it out."
The Pirates took a 6-4 lead with a four-run seventh inning highlighted by McCutchen's three-run triple. Moss added an RBI double in the eighth.
Pittsburgh went ahead 2-1 in the third on Freddy Sanchez's RBI double into the gap in right after Stewart's RBI double. He added a triple in the next inning, scoring on an RBI single by Carlos Gonzalez.
"I think that you look at significant situations that allowed the heroics of Chris and Todd," Tracy said. "It comes down to this is a game that's won by the Colorado Rockies baseball team."
