Rockies end road trip with 5-4 loss to D-backs
Question of the Day
PHOENIX (AP) - The Colorado Rockies appeared well on their way to a sweep and a solid road trip.
Once their bats went quiet and Arizona strung together a couple of two-out hits, the trip home won’t feel quite as good.
Colorado had three hits after the third inning and Rex Brothers struggled to put hitters away during Arizona’s tying rally in the ninth, leading to a 5-4, 10-inning loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.
Stuck in a rut, Arizona appeared to be in trouble after Colorado went up 4-0 after three innings on Carlos Gonzalez’s two-run homer and pitcher Jordan Lyles‘ leadoff shot in the third.
It took some time, but the Diamondbacks worked their way back into it.
Paul Goldscmidt gave Arizona’s offense a little life in the eighth inning, hitting a solo homer off Adam Ottavino.
In the ninth, the Diamondbacks strung together a string of two-strike hits to load the bases against Brothers, and Prado tied it at 4 with a two-run single up the middle.
Addison Reed (1-2) kept the Rockies in check by stranding a runner at third in the 10th inning and Montero, after a couple of misses, ended it with his first career walkoff hit, a towering homer to right off Tommy Kahnle (2-1).
Montero was mobbed as he crossed the plate and was treated to a dirt bath - an Arizona walkoff tradition - that was a nice release for a team that had won two of its first 13 games at Chase Field.
“We needed that,” Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. “It was good that the guys hung in there.”
The Rockies certainly didn’t want to end their six-game road trip this way.
Colorado won four of the first give games and appeared to be in control after Lyles pitched six effective innings.
