This one was close in the early going, although Ketel Marte’s second-inning home-run extended his streak of consecutive hits for extra-bases to 10, tying the franchise record. That was the only scoring by either side through five innings, with Zack Godley significantly better than his previous outing. The D-backs then scored three more in the sixth, on a Marte single, Chris Owings’ fielder’s choice and Jarrod Dyson sacrifice fly. The Rockies pulled back to 4-2 in their half, and chased Godley - he went 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts.

Silvino Bracho came in and got a big K to stop Colorado right there, and Arizona got those runs back and a bonus one in the seventh, on a two-run triple by Goldschmidt and a Marte double. Yoshihisa Hirano, T.J. McFarland and Archie Bradley completed the sweep; on offense, Marte had three hits, while Goldschmidt and Owings got a pair apiece. The defeat sends the Rockies 3.5 games back of the D-backs, and likely into fourth place in the division, pending other results.
