The D-backs had a nine-run eighth inning, that's all that needs to be said.

It didn't look too promising for the D-backs as Trevor Cahill labored with two outs already recorded in the first. The Rockies, with the help of some poor defense by Arizona, went on to score two in the inning to jump out to an early lead.

But Arizona eventually battled back and took over the lead in the fourth when Mark Trumbo hit his first home run in 89 plate appearances. It was a three-run shot to take a 4-3 lead.

From that point on, it was all D-backs, especially in the eighth. Arizona went on to score a combined 10 runs in the seventh and eighth innings to absolutely demolish the rockies bullpen and embarrass Colorado. The eighth was capped off by a two-out 0-2 grand slam off the bat of David Peralta to continue his hot streak.

Matt Stites closed the game out in the ninth for the D-backs' second win in a row and the series win.
