Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Colorado Rockies Recap APR 8TH 2021

Starling Marte homered among his three hits and drove in four runs, Nick Ahmed had two of his three hits during Arizona's eight-run seventh inning, and the visiting Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 13-7 in Denver on Wednesday.

Kole Calhoun and Christian Walker added three hits each and Ketel Marte and David Peralta had two hits apiece for Arizona. Andrew Chafin (1-1) pitched one inning of relief for the win.

Nolan Arenado hit two home runs and three hits, Ryan McMahon also went deep and had two hits, Garrett Hampson had four hits, Trevor Story had three hits, and Raimel Tapia added two more hits for the Rockies.

Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela allowed five runs on nine hits and fanned four in six innings, but Arizona took advantage once the right-hander left the game.

With the score tied 5-5, Ahmed and Calhoun led off the seventh with singles against Tyler Kinley (0-1) and Ketel Marte walked to load the bases. Starling Marte's infield single made it 6-5, and Peralta's bases-clearing double gave Arizona a 9-5 lead.

Yency Almonte came on and gave up an RBI single to Eduardo Escobar after getting Walker to ground out, and Escobar scored on a two-out error by McMahon at first. Ahmed had a run-scoring double and Calhoun's single made it 13-5.

Colorado scored twice in the eighth on Hampson's triple and doubles by Story and Arenado.

The Diamondbacks took a 1-0 lead in the first on Starling Marte's RBI groundout, Arenado tied it with his first home run of the day in the second inning, and Starling Marte's homer in the fourth -- his second of the season -- put Arizona back in front.

McMahon's three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth, his second of the season, gave the Rockies a 4-2 lead and chased starter Luke Weaver.

Weaver allowed four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three in 3 1/3 innings.

Stephen Vogt doubled and scored on Ahmed's one-out single and Ketel Marte and Starling Marte had consecutive RBI singles to put Arizona back in front, 5-4, in the fifth.

Arenado led off Colorado's half of the inning with his second homer of the day and sixth of the season to tie it.

Jon Gray didn't allow a hit through six innings, Dom Nunez homered and the Colorado Rockies beat the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks 7-3 on Thursday.

Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon had two hits apiece and Daniel Bard got the last two outs for his second save for Colorado.

David Peralta had a triple to break up the no-hitter, Eduardo Escobar homered and Pavin Smith had two hits for the Diamondbacks.

Gray cruised through the first six innings but lost his no-hit bid when Peralta led off the seventh with a triple. Smith followed with a single to drive in Peralta. It was the first run for the Diamondbacks after being shut out for 15 innings.

Gray (1-0) got the next two outs but a two-out walk ended his day after 101 pitches. He allowed one run on two hits, struck out five and walked four in 6 2/3 innings.

The Rockies jumped on starter Merrill Kelly right away. Garrett Hampson and Raimel Tapia led off the first with consecutive singles and Hampson came home on Story's double. Blackmon followed with a line drive off the scoreboard in right field that held him to a single but drove in Tapia and Story.

Ryan McMahon singled but Kelly got the next three to end the inning.

Colorado added another run in the second when Gray led off with a single, Hampson followed with a forceout and one out later, Story tripled to make it 4-0.

Nunez made it 7-0 in the sixth with his third home run after McMahon singled and Sam Hilliard reached on a fielder's choice.

Kelly (0-2) left for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning. He allowed seven runs -- six earned -- on nine hits and struck out one. He didn't walk a batter.

Escobar hit a two-run homer off Carlos Estevez in the ninth.

Before the game, Arizona placed Ketel Marte on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring injury. Marte suffered the injury running out a grounder in Wednesday's night game and was helped off the field.
