National League Game Summary - Colorado at Arizona



(Wednesday, April 30th)

Final Score: Arizona 5, Colorado 4 (10 innings)

Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Miguel Montero led off the bottom of the 10th inning with a game-winning home run, as the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday to avoid a three-game sweep at Chase Field.

Martin Prado tied the game with a two-out, two-run single in the bottom of the ninth, and after Addison Reed (1-2) stranded a runner on third in the top of the 10th, Montero lifted a 1-2 fastball from Tommy Kahnle (2-1) into the seats in right to snap Arizona's four-game losing streak.

"It was a short swing, I was kind of quick on it. I know the guy throws hard, I was expecting something hard and I was just trying to protect with two strikes," said Montero. "That protect swing was pretty good."

Prado finished with three hits and a run scored, while Paul Goldschmidt added a solo homer for the Diamondbacks, who entered the game 1-19 this season when trailing after eight innings.

Carlos Gonzalez slugged a two-run homer for the Rockies, who had a three-game win streak halted. Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado went 1-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 20 games.

Arizona's late rally spoiled a stellar start from Colorado right-hander Jordan Lyles, who limited the Diamondbacks to one run on three hits and two walks over six innings.

Lyles also launched his second career homer to led off the third before Charlie Blackmon doubled, moved to third on a bunt, and scored on a wild pitch from Arizona starter Josh Collmenter to give Colorado a 4-0 lead.

Arizona finally solved Lyles in the sixth, as Prado smacked a one-out single, Goldschmidt scorched a double and Montero was hit by a pitch to load the bases for Aaron Hill, who plated Prado with a fielder's choice groundout.

Rockies reliever Matt Belisle replaced Lyles to start the seventh and spun a scoreless frame, but Adam Ottavino took over in the eighth and served up a one-out solo shot to Goldschmidt that brought the home team within 4-2.

In the ninth, Cody Ross smacked a leadoff single before pinch-hitter Chris Owings scorched a two-out double to put men on second and third.

Rex Brothers then plunked Gerardo Parra to load the bases for Prado, who ripped a single back up the middle to plate two runs and tie the game at 4-4.

"One pitch away from that game being in the books, no doubt about it. I didn't execute, bottom line," said Brothers.

Brothers fanned Goldschmidt to send the game to extra innings.
