It took a couple of months but the Colorado Rockies are finally back at .500.

Their 5-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night at Coors Field brought their overall record to 27-27.

Right-hander Jeff Hoffman went five innings and gave up three runs on seven hits while walking two and striking out six. His push bunt brought home a run and capped a three-run fourth inning in which the Rockies took the lead for good.

Second baseman Brendan Rodgers had a two-run single in that inning and finished 1-2 with a pair of walks.

Four Rockies relievers combined to allow only one run on four hits over the final four innings.Reliever Scott Oberg pitched the ninth inning and recorded his first career save.

This is the first time the Rockies have been at .500 since March 31 when they were 2-2. At one point, they were nine games under at 3-12.

The Rockies have won four straight games and five of six on this homestand.
