Inside the Box: D-backs blow late lead in loss

After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the
box score and
provide you with instant analysis. So it’s time to go
Inside the Box for
September 6, 2011: Rockies 8, Diamondbacks 3

The Good:

Arizona starter Josh Collmenter was fantastic tossing six and 1/3 innings only giving up five hits and one run.

Collmenter continues to give Arizona quality starts and a solid fourth starter.

Aaron Hill and Justin Upton each had two hits for Arizona.

The Bad:

Arizona had a 3-1 lead entering the eighth inning but couldn’t hold it as David Hernandez had a rare off night.

The D-backs main set-up man gave up five runs with Troy Tulowitzki’s three-run homer being the devastating blow for the D-backs.

Arizona gave up a total of seven runs in the eighth inning turning what looked like was going to be a D-backs win into a blow-out victory for Colorado.
