Through more than half of the season, the Colorado Rockies found it difficult to score runs in the late innings.
Now, they are regularly saving their best for last.
Ian Desmond hit a two-out, two-run, walk-off home run to give the Rockies a thrilling 4-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Thursday afternoon at Coors Field.
The Rockies held the lead until the seventh when Jose Pirela's two-run single put San Diego up, 3-2.
In the ninth, Trevor Story reached on a one-out single and stole second. After Gerardo Parra struck out, Desmond deposited Kirby Yates' 1-1 pitch over the left-field wall and the Rockies had yet another walk-off win.
