The Colorado Rockies are making walk-off wins merely routine.
The Rockies came up with their third walk-off in the last four games on Monday, beating the Arizona Diamondbacks, 4-3, in 11 innings at Coors Field.
Raimel Tapia chased home Ian Desmond with an RBI single to give the Rockies yet another dramatic win.
Desmond had doubled with one out.
Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh, Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado continued his torrid hitting with a two-run single that tied the game.
It stayed that way until Desmond and Tapia provided the winning margin.
Reliever Bryan Shaw worked out of a jam in the top of the 10th. Jerrod Dyson's line drive went off Desmond's glove for a triple. But Shaw induced three gound balls to get out of the inning unscathed.
Game two of the series is Tuesday, May 28 at 6 p.m. on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
