A closer look: D-backs rout Rockies to get back to .500
Sure, you could read the box score and know who won, but we all know that won't tell you everything that happened in a baseball game. So, we will give you a closer look, providing you with the analysis, quotes and notes from the D-backs' September 21 win against the Rockies. Final score: Diamondbacks 15, Rockies 5.
The D-backs offense exploded for a season-high 15 runs and 19 hits in Friday's series opener against the Colorado Rockies.
Miguel Montero and Chris Johnson each had three hits and three RBI on the night, while Johnson and Adam Eaton both homered for Arizona.
Despite rookie Wade Miley notching his 16th win of the season in the rout, his performance was rocky. The right-hander tossed six innings, allowing five runs on 10 hits with four strikeouts and no walks.
Aaron Hill is just one double shy of joining teammate Paul Goldschmidt with at least 40 on the season.
Justin Upton was able to extend his hitting streak to eight games.
He Said It:
"We scored in every inning but the second," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "A ton of contributions from everybody and played pretty solid."
The D-backs and Rockies will play game two of their series Saturday night at 5:10 p.m. Southpaw Patrick Corbin (6-7, 4.02) will get the call for Arizona.
