DENVER -- Rockies right-hander Matt Belisle has given up six runs in his last five outings, including Friday night's Buster Posey home run in the eighth inning. The homer cut the Rockies' lead to one run, but the team held on for a 10-9 victory.

Belisle actually was good Friday for all but the homer pitch.

Manager Walt Weiss said he believes Belisle (1-2, 4.22 ERA) is in a good place.

"These guys are not going to be perfect every time out, but I think Matt's throwing the ball well, and he threw the ball well last night," Weiss said. "He threw a slider in the middle of the plate to one of the best hitters in baseball. I don't think it's a matter of Matt slumping."
