The sixth-inning shot gave the Diamondbacks a 3-1 lead over the Rockies.
The opposite field home run by Lamb could be a sign that the former all-star third baseman has found his swing after recovering from multiple injuries.
A shoulder injury against the Cubs in 2018 sidelined Lamb for the end of 2018, while a quad strain forced him to miss 76 games in 2019.
Lamb had his best game of the season on Saturday going 2-for-3 with one walk. He also singled in his at-bat following the home run, sending a laser to left center.
Both of Lamb’s hits were of the opposite field variety as his home traveled 384 feet over the left field wall.
Lamb has seen time a first base and third base this season.
The home run gives him 76 in his career. This is his sixth season in the majors, all coming as a member of the D-backs.
