(Colo.)- Gray Hits 467-Foot HR, Pitches Into 6th As Rox Beat Reds 5-3

DENVER (AP) - Jon Gray hit his first career homer an estimated 467 feet - the farthest by any Rockies player this season - and pitched effectively into the sixth inning as Colorado beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 on a sweltering Wednesday night. 
Pat Valaika had a career-high three hits, including a two-run homer and a run-scoring single with two outs in the eighth. 
Gray's two-run homer in the second was the longest among pitchers since MLB's Statcast began tracking distances in 2015. Gray even did a hop out of the batter's box and rounded the bases at a leisurely pace.
The right-handed Gray (2-0) was solid on the mound, going 5 2/3 innings and allowing three runs, two earned, in his second start since a broken bone in his left foot sidelined him for two months. Greg Holland threw a shaky ninth for his 28th save to help the slumping Rockies win for the third time in 14 games.
