Montero drives in 6, D-backs outslug Rockies 16-8
Question of the Day
The Rockies came back with four runs in the fifth and four more in the seventh. D.J. LeMahieu’s two-out infield single in the seventh tied the game and a throwing error by Owings at shortstop allowed the Rockies to take the lead. Pinch-hitter Drew Stubbs also added a two-run single.
Brothers faced five batters without getting an out. He allowed five runs.
“I’m not going to talk about Rex’s situation right now, as far as his future,” Weiss said. “Just got to keep working through it, like all of us do. It’s up to us to turn this thing around, each guy. Nobody is going to do it for us.”
Arizona starter Josh Collmenter, coming off a complete-game win, was cruising until the fifth when the Rockies broke out of their offensive funk. Troy Tulowitzki had a two-run double and Michael Cuddyer followed with a two-run single.
Tulowitzki slid just past Montero’s tag for the tying run.
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson challenged the play but after a quick review, the call was upheld.
Tulowitzki leads the majors in batting (.354) and All-Star votes (1,419,718).
“With the streak we’ve been on, to have Lyles break his hand, it’s unfortunate,” Tulowitzki said. “We’ve had a lot of hand injuries.”
Before the game, Rockies All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an inflamed left index finger. It’s another big bat out of the lineup as third baseman Nolan Arenado (fractured finger) went on the DL on May 24.
NOTES: The Diamondbacks said on their Twitter account Wednesday that INF Cliff Pennington underwent surgery to fix a partially torn ligament in his left thumb. … Arizona will send RHP Bronson Arroyo (4-4) to the mound in the series finale Thursday, while the Rockies counter with RHP Juan Nicasio (5-3). … Prized prospect RHP Eddie Butler will make his major league debut for Colorado on Friday.
