Diamondbacks 13, Rockies 7

The offense came alive early and stayed hot throughout, and Josh Collmenter was pretty good himself to help the D-backs take the 1st game of the doubleheader.

As you can tell from the final line score, offense was not a problem today. Mark Trumbo had a two-run homer and Aaron Hill had a three-run homer to back a team that had 5 players with multi-hit games. Other hitting stars were Yasmany Tomas with 3 singles and 3 rbi's, A.J. Pollock reached base 6 times (2 doubles, 3 walks, 1 error) with 4 runs scored, and Ender Inciarte with 4 hits and 2 runs scored. Really the only one without any success on the day was Paul Goldschmidt, who was 0-5 with 4 K's.

Josh Collmenter went 7+ innings and was good, despite what his pitching line describes. He went 4 scoreless to start the game but fell victim to Coors Field, with homers by Morneau, Hundley and Stubbs to eventually knock Josh out of the game. Enrique Burgos was shaky in relief, missing with his command and giving up an RBI double to Nick Hundley but got through his inning without further damage. Oliver Perez came on and got the first two outs easy enough, but a walk, HBP and double chased him. Brad Ziegler then came on and got a groundout from Arenado to close out the game.

Stay tuned, because in 20 minutes we've got another game with Robbie Ray making his Diamondbacks debut as he faces off against Jordan Lyles.
