"When they signed him, that's what we felt like he could do -- he could be a run producer. He just seems to be getting better at all parts of the game on an everyday basis."
-Chip Hale on Yasmany Tomás
"My fastball command was good today, moving in and out. I was able to mix in the curveball and the changeup and felt good with both of those. Had a lot of confidence in them and was able to move the ball around, and this is a really aggressive team, so pitching ahead in the count is huge."
-Josh Collmenter on dominant outing

It Happened Last Night
Colorado scored one unearned run in the first inning before Josh Collmenter settled in. Once he did, the night was over for the Rockies. Josh Collmenter scattered five hits across eight innings with no walks and six strikeouts. He then turned the ball over to Enrique Burgos who made his MLB debut by pitching a flawless 1-2-3 ninth. The pitching tandem was overkill as the Diamondbacks offense continued to click. Tomás picked up three RBI, as did Pacheco on his first home run since May 17, 2013.
After Archie Bradley was hit hit in the face by a Carlos Gonzalez line drive, there was no doubt he was headed to the DL. The question was simply a matter of for how long. The Arizona Diamondbacks are now expecting that, barring anything unforeseen, Bradley will return to the rotation after the minimum 15-days.
