It was not looking like your typical Coors Field game early on, with only one run scored through the front three innings, the D-backs having the edge. They then scored four in the fourth, taking advantage of an errant throw by the Rockies pitcher, but a five-run lead is never safe at Coors. And so it proved, as the Rockies scored six runs while making one out in the bottom of the fifth, to chase Robbie Ray. He went 4.1 innings and was charged with six earned runs on eight hits and two walks with two K's. A.J. Pollock then restored the Arizona lead, hitting a two-run shot for his first home-run since coming off the DL.
Colorado came back to tie it again against Zack Godley, but the game then remained tied through the middle of the eighth. Enrique Burgos and Silvino Bracho ensured it didn't, allowing Colorado to score seven times, all of them coming with two outs. Game over, man. On offense, Yasmany Tomas got three hits for the Diamondbacks, and Pollock reached base three times, walking twice in addition to his home-run. Chris Owings had two hits and a walk. We still lost by seven runs. Why don't our pitchers sit in the corner and think about what they've done?
