(CLEVELAND, OH) - The Cleveland Indians saw their three-game winning streak come to an end as they fell to the Colorado Rockies 8-7.

The Indians built a 4-1 lead on the strength of a three-run home run by Travis Hafner and a solo shot from Carlos Santana, but Colorado responded by scoring six runs in the fifth.

Todd Helton drew a bases-loaded walk and Troy Tulowitzki followed with a two-run double to tie the game.

Jason Giambi gave the Rockies the lead for good when he capped the big inning with a three-run blast off Indians starter Fausto Carmona.
