Diamondbacks 5, Rockies 4 (10): Miguel Montero homered to lead off the bottom of the 10th inning as
Arizona erased a four-run deficit to snap a four-game losing streak.
Montero crushed a 1-2 fastball from Tommy Kahnle (2-1) over the
wall in right for his third of the season after Martin Prado's
two-run single against Rex Brothers tied the game 4-4 with two outs
in the ninth. Addison Reed (1-2) struck out Drew Stubbs with a
runner on third and one out and retired Carlos Gonzalez on a fly out
to end the 10th.
Prado had three hits and scored a run while Paul Goldschmidt homered
among his two hits to make it 4-2 in the eighth for the Diamondbacks
(9-22), who improved to 3-13 at Chase Field. Aaron Hill also drove
in a run for Arizona.
Gonzalez belted a two-run homer and Nolan Arenado extended his
hitting streak to 20 games as the Rockies finished their road trip
4-2. Jordan Lyles yielded one run and three hits in six innings and
hit his second career home run while Justin Morneau went 0-for-4 to
end his streak at 13 contests for Colorado.
Stubbs singled with one out in the first and Gonzalez ripped
Collmenter's next pitch out to right for his fifth homer. Lyles led
off the third by lining a 2-2 offering over the wall in left-center
before Charlie Blackmon followed with a double, was sacrificed to
third by Stubbs and scored on a wild pitch to make it 4-0.
