Diamondbacks lose to Rockies 8-5
Question of the Day
PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks got their hits, spraying balls all over Chase Field.
After a string of quality starts, the pitching wasn’t there to go with it.
“They are a good-hitting ball club,” Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. “They are hard to contain. You have to make good pitches on them.”
Tulowitzki, who went 1 for 12 in a three-game series against the Dodgers, doubled in his first two at-bats and led off sixth with his sixth homer, finishing with three RBIs. Justin Morneau added a two-run shot later in the inning to extend his hitting streak to 12 games and Nolan Arenado had one of Colorado’s six doubles to stretch his hitting streak to a baseball-best 18 games.
The Rockies had 12 hits overall, eight for extra bases.
Franklin Morales (3-1) allowed four runs in five innings and LaTroy Hawkins worked a perfect ninth for his eighth straight save.
“We played good offensive baseball tonight,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. “Tulo had a (great) night and we played well offensively.”
It made for a rough night for the Diamondbacks.
They just couldn’t overcome Miley’s rough start, losing their third straight since a three-game winning streak.
“They battled and we got out-battled,” Gibson said. “Those guys, you look up and down the board at their averages and we knew coming into the game they are swinging the bats very well.”
After some early-season struggles, Arizona had gotten four straight quality outings from its starters, who had allowed four earned runs in the previous 26 innings.
The Diamondbacks only won two of those, but it was a step in the right direction.
