Three of the first four outs of Sunday’s contest were made by each of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ outfielders, all of which could end up on SportsCenter Top 10.

Alek Thomas, Daulton Varsho and David Peralta took turns leaving the crowd in awe with their athleticism in the 3-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies at Chase Field on Sunday.

Thomas made a jump on just the fourth pitch of the game on Rockies’ Connor Joe, crashing into the fence to record the first out of the game.

Just 13 pitches later, Varsho chased down the first pitch of Brendan Rodgers’ at-bat toward the right field line. The speedy outfielder tracked the ball before laying out and sliding to make the catch.

Last, and certainly not least, the 2019 Gold Glove winner in Peralta sprinted to the warning track before jumping and reaching his glove out up and over his head to take away extra bases from the Rockies.

Peralta then gave a look to his fellow outfielders after he also flashed the leather.

D-backs starting pitcher Tyler Gilbert had a strong outing against Colorado, throwing 5.2 innings giving up zero earned runs while only allowing three hits, one strikeout and one walk.
