The Colorado Rockies are banged up but hardly beaten down.

The Rockies rallied for a gutsy 6-4 win in 10 innings over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday and swept the three-game series at Chase Field.

Chris Iannetta came through with a two-run single in the tenth to cap a rally that saw the Rockies score three runs in the final two innings.

Tony Wolters' pinch-hit RBI single tied the game at four in the ninth.

Scott Oberg pitched the final two innings to record the victory. He worked out of a bases loaded, one out situation in the bottom of the tenth innning to secure the win.

No doubt the Rockies are banged up. They placed shortstop Trevor Story on the 10-day injured list with a thumb injury. Outfielder Charlie Blackmon fouled a ball hard off his knee during the game. Third baseman Nolan Arenado fouled a ball off his left foot and later exited the game. He has a left big toe contusion.

Through it all, the Rockies persevered and won their eighth consecutive game against the D'backs.
