Saturday, the Purple faced the Pinstripes at Coors Field in the Colorado Rockies intrasquad game.
Third baseman Nolan Arenado ended the festivities with a walk-off home run of sorts.
Arenado belted his second home run of the game, this one off right-hander Jesus Tinoco, to center field to put the Purple up 4-3 in the top of the sixth inning. The game was called after Arenado's at-bat.
Left-hander Ryan Rolison got the start for the Pinstripe team and he threw two scoreless innings. Right-hander Jose Mujica gave up two runs in his innings for Team Purple.
Along with Arenado's two home runs, shortstop Trevor Story and catcher Drew Butera each hit one for Purple.
