The Arizona Diamondbacks struck hard and heavy against the Rockies last night in a 12-5 win over the Colorado Rockies last night. The D-backs got 12 runs off 15 hits, snapping a four game losing streak.
“The guys did a great job, good at-bats,” D-backs manager Chip Hale said. “We got the ball up a little bit and we were able to get the ball up and we were able to do some damage early and then continue to do it during the game. That’s a good sign for me, because sometimes you score runs early and shut it down, but we just kept having good at-bats.”
The Rockies face the D-backs again tonight in the closer of the series before hooking up with them again back home in Colorado. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today!
The Colorado Rockies hot start has continued as they defeated the defending World Series Champions on the road 2-0. The Game began with RHP Eddie Butler who managed to last only 5 1/3 innings but was effective through four innings sending 10 runners back to the bench empty handed.
“He’s got the two-seamer. That’s his safety net,” Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. “When the guys make contact, they’re usually hitting the top of the ball. He created some traffic for himself but he pitched through it.”
