ROCKIES 4, DIAMONDBACKS 2

DENVER (AP) _ Tyler Chatwood pitched effectively into the sixth inning and Andrew Brown homered.

Jason Kubel homered for the Diamondbacks, who have slim hopes of a late-season playoff push. Arizona fell 5 1/2 games behind St. Louis with nine remaining in the race for the second NL wild card.

Tyler Colvin and Charlie Blackmon had two hits each for Colorado. Rafael Betancourt worked the ninth for his 30th save.

For one night, at least, the Rockies (59-94) avoided tying the franchise record for losses in a season with a solid performance from Chatwood. Colorado’s pitchers had allowed 33 runs on 48 hits through the first three games of this series before holding the Diamondbacks to five hits Monday.
