Eight was more than enough for the Colorado Rockies.

Right-hander Jon Gray returned after missing more than two months and the Rockies snapped their eight-game losing streak with a 6-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

Gray went six innings and allowed two runs on seven hits with one walk and ten strikeouts. It was his first outing since mid-April when he suffered a stress fracture in his foot.

Charlie Blackmon led off the game with a home run. Raimel Tapia hit his first Major League home run and drove in two runs.

The Rockies go for two straight wins over the Diamondbacks. Saturday's game can be heard at 7:30 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
