Nolan Arenado is on some kind of roll.

Arenado's two-run triple in the bottom of the eighth inning brought in Charlie Blackmon and D.J. LeMahieu and gave the Colorado Rockies a 4-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Coors Field.

The Diamondbacks had taken a 3-2 lead in the top half of the eighth on back-to-back solo home runs by David Peralta and Paul Goldschmidt.

But for the second straight game, the Rockies rallied late. Blackmon reached on a single to left and LeMahieu followed with another base hit to left. That set the stage for Arenado, who came through again, sending Zack Greinke's 1-0 pitch off the right-field wall.

Sunday, Arenado's three-run, walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Rockies a 7-5 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Arenado finished 2-for-4 with the two RBIs. Carlos Gonzalez, Ian Desmond and Trevor Story also had two hits each for the Rockies.

Despite giving up the home run to Goldschmidt, Adam Ottavino (1-1) picked up the win in relief. Greg Holland earned his 25th save.

The Rockies have won six straight games.
