Every win counts the same.

But some feel bigger than others.

Sunday, the Colorado Rockies' 5-4, 11-inning win over the Milwaukee Brewers was gigantic.

The Rockies led 4-1 heading to the bottom of the ninth inning. The Brewers scored three runs (two earned) off reliever Adam Ottavino.

As it turned out, that enabled Arenado to come through in dramatic fashion once again, belting his 29th home run of the season on a 3-2 pitch from Brewers closer Corey Knebel.

While he didn't get the win, Rockies starter Jon Gray was terrific through eight innings of work. He gave up only one run on four hits, with two walks and eight strikeouts.

Trevor Story's three-run home run in the fifth inning erased a 1-0 deficit.

The Rockies return home to start a three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday, Aug. 6. Coverage starts at 6 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRaido 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
