The game starts out with the Dbacks going down 1-2-3 and so do the Rockies in their half of the inning. Things get, uh... Rocky in the bottom of the 2nd when Troy Tulowitzki hits a double to center to lead off the bottom of the 2nd and Rosario hits a single to put runners on the corners. Jordan Pacheco pops up and Nolan Arenado singles to bring Tulo home. DJ LeMahieu singles to drive home Rosario to make the score 2-0 in favor the of the Rockies. Things die down until the bottom of the third when Tulo hits a Homerun to make it 3-0 in favor of the Rockies. The game quiets down until the Rockies score again when Nolan Arenado reaches base on a throwing error by Gregorious, and DJ LeMahieu lines a double to left to make the score 4-0 in favor of the Rockies. There's another break in the action when in the top of the 7th Paul Goldschmidt gets things going by drawing a walk and Eric Chavez reaches first on a throwing error by Jordan Pacheco. Cody Ross draws a walk and Jason Kubel hits a two run double to left to make the score 4-2. Martin Prado singles on a ground ball to center to tie the game up at 4-4. This inning ends somewhat controversially when Adrian Johnson , in Angel Hernandez-esque fashion, makes two awful strikeout calls in a row. The pitching takes over for a little while until the tenth inning when "Stone Cold" Matt Reynolds replaces David Hernandez. Reynolds manages to get a 4 pitch strike out from Charlie Blackmon. Carlos Gonzalez comes to the plate and quickly doubles. Reynolds then intentionally walks Tulo to get to Wilin Rosario who hits a walk off single on the first pitch he sees from Reynolds which ends the game with a score of 5-4.
