Arizona Diamondbacks 4, Colorado Rockies 5

A three-run homer off Jake Barrett was the difference here.

Zack Greinke worked seven solid innings, but wasn’t able to get the 14th win which would have tied him with Randy Johnson, for most wins at home in a season by a Diamondbacks pitcher. He allowed two runs on five hits, walking none and striking out six. The D-backs did for the Rockies to their bullpen early, after a J.D. Martinez liner hit the Colorado starter around the collar-bone area. But they weren’t able to take advantage. Martinez scored both our first two runs, one on a Greinke infield single, and the other on an Adam Rosales sacrifice fly.

The B-bullpen, and Jake Barrett in particular, had a bad night. Barrett gave up a two-out triple in the eighth, then walked Carlos Gonzalez to get to Nolan Arenado. No prizes for guessing how that worked out: a three-run homer. Arizona did fight back, getting runs in the bottom half on RBI from Paul Goldschmidt and Martinez. They also had the tying run in scoring position with one out. But Chris Iannetta flew out to the warning track - if only the runners had tagged up, given the subsequent wild pitch - and A.J. Pollock grounded out.
