Rockies come up short against Diamondbacks
DENVER (MLB) — The Rockies found a couple more hits and converted them into a couple more runs against the D-backs on Saturday night, but ultimately the result was the same, with the Rockies falling, 8-7, in a nail-biter after a lopsided laugher the night before.
With much improved pitching in the second match-up of a four-game series at Coors Field, the game had a decidedly different feel to it.
The Rockies were done in by a five-run sixth at the hands of hybrid reliever Carlos Torres, but they had five pitchers put up zeros, keeping them competitive throughout the game as the lead changed back and forth. Colorado knocked D-backs starter Patrick Corbin out of the game after three innings, and although Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin lasted only four due to an elevated pitch count, he left with the lead.
