The Arizona Diamondbacks (12-14) may have had a bit of pent-up energy, or a touch of cabin fever after getting rained out two nights in a row in Colorado.

That could’ve been why they were able to score 18 runs in two games over the course of seven hours to sweep a doubleheader against the Rockies.

Paul Goldschmidt hit his seventh home run of the season in the fourth inning of a 5-1 game two win, and in doing so, opened the floodgates for what had previously been a scoreless outing.

Arizona added three more runs in the sixth courtesy of a two-out, two-run double from David Peralta, and Goldschmidt sent him in with a RBI single for the 4-1 lead.

Catcher Tuffy Gosewisch then orchestrated a beautiful bunt to third and was able to squeeze a single out of it while scoring A.J. Pollock.

The win gave Arizona its first doubleheader road sweep since 2006. What were the numbers?

Pitcher Robbie Ray made his Diamondbacks debut, allowing five hits and one run alongside five strikeouts in six innings pitched for a 1.50 ERA.

.480

Despite going hitless in the first game against Colorado, Goldschmidt notched two hits, including a homer, against the Rockies in game two with two RBI andis now hitting .480 against Colorado in the last 11 games.

3/4

Gosewisch hit well in the second game against the Rockies, going 3-for-4 with a run and RBI.

With the pair of wins Wednesday, Arizona improved its record against Colorado this season to 4-1.
