Eyes can't be trusted in September. Along with March it ranks as baseball's most deceiving month. Matchups are mishmashes of aspiring prospects veterans and a battery of players who will never see the big leagues again. There was a moment Friday that created multiple blinks an astonishing feat that sparked a five-run rally in the Rockies' 7-5 win at Chase Field. Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson hit a pitch that bounced. Not just a short hop. Will Harris' slider hit 3 feet in front of the plate and the rookie swatted it into the right-field corner for a double. By itself it was remarkable the kind of bat flick reserved for Vladimir Guerrero or Ichiro. That the trick mattered made it mean a little more. Dickerson scored helping shove the Rockies to only their seventh road victory in 22 games since the all-star break. Colorado flipped the script watching the opposition's bullpen dissolve for a refreshing change. Troy Tulowitzki belted out three hits and plated a run in the decisive seventh. And Wilin Rosario tied his career high with four RBIs giving him 78 on the season. The Rockies were in position to win because their own wobbly relief corps regained its balance. With the outcome in doubt after Adam Ottavino's game-tying wild pitch Josh Outman made a big pitch. Wild and ineffective of late Outman ran the count to 2-2 before getting a lazy popup from left-handed hitter Eric Chavez for the final out in the sixth. It was a tough outing for starter Tyler Chatwood who didn't make it through the fifth inning. He gave up seven hits and six walks in 4 ⅔ innings yet allowed only two earned runs. Arizona starter Brandon McCarthy also struggled allowing 11 hits in his six innings of work. Yet he also only allowed two earned runs.
