When they had to, the Arizona Diamondbacks made good pitches on Tuesday night.
As a result, the D'backs were able to beat the Colorado Rockies, 6-3, and even the four-game series at Coors Field.
Ketel Marte broke a 2-2 tie with a two-run triple in the sixth inning. Then in the eighth, he singled home another two runs.
The Rockies loaded the bases but could not score in the seventh. They could not score in the ninth despite having runners at the corners and no one out.
Rockies shortstop Trevor Story went 1-4 with a double and an RBI. He is the first shortstop in Major League history with at least 40 doubles, 30 home runs and 25 stolen bases in a season in baseball history.
The Rockies still lead the Dodgers by a game-and-a-half in the N.L. West after L.A. lost at Cincinnati, 3-1. The D'backs are two-and-a-half out.
Game three between the Rockies and D'backs is Wednesday at Coors Field. Coverage starts at 6 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
