The Colorado Rockies’ dismal season keeps getting worse.

They’ll try to end a season-high 10-game losing streak in the finale of a three-game series with the Florida Marlins.

The Rockies lost 4-1 to the Marlins on Saturday, and have not won since an 8-6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 23. Colorado, which owns the worst record in baseball, is off to the worst start in franchise history and on pace to finish the season 36-126.

Rookie Clint Barmes continues to be one of the few bright spots for the Rockies, who committed three errors and made several other miscues Saturday. He went 3-for-4 with a double and a run, boosting his average to .400.

Todd Helton drove in Barmes and went 2-for-3 for the Rockies, who have won just one game on the road this season. The RBI moved Helton past Larry Walker for the most in team history with 829.

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a walk, drove in a run and threw out a runner at the plate for the Marlins, who have won six of their last eight games. Luis Castillo had two hits and two runs for Florida, which stranded 10 runners in the first six innings.

“We had many opportunities,” Marlins manager Jack McKeon said. “We eked out enough runs. We got enough key hits when we needed them. Or sacrifice flies. Or errors.”
