in right-center field as the Rockies halted a six-game skid
against the Diamondbacks. Wilin Rosario added a run-scoring
single later in the frame.
Arizona had the bases loaded in the ninth before Matt Belisle
(3-6) retired Mark Trumbo on an inning-ending grounder. LaTroy
Hawkins struck out the side in the 10th for his 18th save in 19

early lead before Colorado knotted the score in the second on a
two-run homer by Ben Paulsen, the first of his major-league
career. Rosario’s throwing error gave the Diamondbacks a run in
the fourth but he got it back himself in the sixth when he
slugged a one-out blast to right-center field.
Arizona’s Wade Miley struck out eight in six innings while
allowing three runs and five hits. Rockies starter Franklin
Morales gave up three runs (two earned) and five hits in six
