Eric Young Jr.
DENVER (AP) -- Didi Gregorius hit his second major league home run and singled to start a two-run rally in the ninth inning that led the Diamondbacks to a 5-4 win Sunday and stopped the Rockies' eight-game winning streak.
Gregorius, who homered Thursday at Yankee Stadium on the first pitch he saw with the Diamondbacks, started a comeback from a 3-0 deficit when he homered against Juan Nicasio leading off the fifth.
Colorado led 4-3 when Gregorius singled leading off the ninth against Wilton Lopez (0-1). A.J. Pollock doubled on a chopper over third baseman Jonathan Herrera, and pinch-hitter Alfredo Marte grounded out to third, driving in Gregorius with the tying run. Gerardo Parra followed with a sacrifice fly to deep center to put the D-backs.
Heath Bell (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth. The Rockies put runners at the corners in the ninth before J.J. Putz got Eric Young Jr. to hit a game-ending comebacker for his third save in five chances.
The D-backs improved to 6-0 in getaway games this year.

Sometimes it pays to be in the right place at the right time and one elderly woman attending a Colorado Rockies game scored herself a foul ball without doing any work.
It happened back on Friday as Arizona shortstop Didi Gregorious fouled off a pitch from Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin.
Watch as the lady tries to duck out of the way of the ball but ends up catching it:
April in MLB yields surprises every year. Individual performances that nobody saw coming….players that flare up like a supernova in the early weeks only to wither under the weight of the long 162-game schedule. Likewise teams that get off to piping hot starts that either confirm the suspicions that some may have had that the team was ready to rise up or quick starts that baffle...
Another snowstorm forced postponement of Monday night's game between the Atlanta Braves and the Colorado Rockies.

The postponement was the third in eight days at Coors Field because of snow. The Rockies and New York Mets...
Wilton Lopez scratches his shoulder when he gives up game winning runs
The Rockies have been one of the surprises of the season so far and we still aren’t quite sure how they’re doing it. But whatever it is, today they did not do it. Wilton Lopez entered into the 9th looking to collect the save for the Rockies with them only up one run. They were at Colorado so I guess...

The Rockies beat the Diamondbacks 3-1 last night to improve their record to 12-4, and a perfect 7-0 at Coors Field. But if you want to talk about a team feasting on a weak schedule, look no further than Colorado. They're 2-1 against Milwaukee, 6-0 against San Diego, 3-0 against the Mets, and a combined 1-3 against Arizona and San Francisco. After the Rockies finish up this series...
