DENVER — Jake Lamb homered, tripled and drove in four runs, Jean Segura also went deep and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 10-5 on Monday night.

Archie Bradley (1-0) shook off a rough start to pitch six innings and get the win the same day he was recalled from Triple-A Reno.

The win was the Diamondbacks’ fourth straight and ended a four-game skid to Colorado. The Rockies took two out of three in Arizona to start the season and then swept the Diamondbacks at Chase Field at the end of April.

All it took was a change of venue and some power to turn things around against Colorado and Tyler Chatwood (4-3). The Rockies’ righty entered Monday 4-0 with a 2.70 ERA in six career games against Arizona. He won his first two starts against the Diamondbacks this year, allowing just two runs in 12 2/3 innings.

In this game, he gave up six runs and seven hits in six innings.

Arizona broke out against him after the Rockies took a 4-1 lead with a three-run fourth. Chatwood got the first two outs but the next six Arizona batters reached to make it 6-4. Segura started it with a solo homer and Lamb hit a three-run shot into the second deck in right.

Wellington Castillo, who had three hits, doubled and scored on Chris Herrman’s triple in the seventh that gave the Diamondbacks a 6-4 lead. Arizona tacked on two more runs in the seventh off reliever Scott Oberg to make it 8-4.

Lamb had an RBI triple in the ninth and scored his third run on a sacrifice fly. Gerardo Parra’s RBI single in the bottom of the inning, his third hit, made it 10-5.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Diamondbacks: Of David Peralta is day to day with a sore right forearm. Peralta didn’t start Sunday’s game but came in as defensive replacement. … OF Yasmany Tomas was out of the starting lineup with a sore neck and upper back. He took batting practice Monday and is likely to play Tuesday.

Rockies: LHP Jorge De La Rosa (strained left groin) tossed 73 pitches in a rehab start for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday. He is scheduled to make one more rehab start for Albuquerque on Saturday. … Rockies LHP Tyler Anderson was reinstated from the 15-day DL and optioned to Double-A Hartford. Anderson has not pitched since 2014 because of a left elbow injury.

UP NEXT

Diamondbacks: RHP Rubby De La Rosa (3-4, 4.60 ERA) is 3-1 with a 3.94 ERA in seven games — five starts — against Colorado. He is 2-0 at Coors Field.

Rockies: LHP Chris Rusin (1-0, 4.43) tossed five shutout innings at Arizona on April 30. It was his first start of the season but he got a no-decision in Colorado’s win.
