The Diamondbacks actually trailed this one after three innings, courtesy of a Mark Reynolds home-run, which had given the Rockies a 1-0 lead. But things changed in a hurry, with Arizona setting new team record for both hits and runs in a single road inning, scoring 10 times in the fourth. There were seven different RBI knocks in the frame, including one by starter Taijuan Walker. He was able to take advantage, going six innings and holding Colorado to three runs on six hits and four walks with eight strikeouts. Randall Delgado and T.J. McFarland took things the rest of the way.
The offense pounded out season highs in both runs (16) and hits (20). David Peralta had four hits, as did Brandon Drury. The latter also drove in six runs, with three of those RBI coming on two separate hits in the fourth inning. Paul Goldschmidt had three hits before being lifted for a bit of a rest, and Gregor Blanco two hits and a walk. After last night’s loss, you could hardly have asked for a more emphatic victory.
