After jumping out to a 6-0 lead D-backs need to rally in 10th to win

April 28, 2010 by  

After splitting the first two games of the series, division rivals Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado RockiesĀ  played a day game today to decide who would take the series win. Arizona sent Kris Benson to the mound in the bottom of the first inning with a 6-0 lead. Chris Young had the big hit in the first inning with a three run homer off starter Greg Smith. On the day Young was 2-for-4 with a walk and five RBIs.

Benson entered the third inning of work with a 6-1 lead. The Rockies were able to get the bases loaded in the third inning before Benson was able to record an out. Benson was then removed from the game with soreness in his shoulder. Leo Rosales relieved Benson and by the time the inning was over the Rockies had a 7-6 lead. The Rockies would add another four in the fourth off Rosales and before you knew it the 6-0 lead had turned into an 11-6 deficit for Arizona. After Rosales was removed the bullpen buckled down and held the Rockies scoreless for the next six innings.

The D-backs got three runs back in the top of the fifth inning and two in the eight to force an 11-11 tie which it would remain into the 10th. Kelly Johnson hit his eighth homer of the year to lead off the 10th inning and giving the D-backs a 12-11 lead. Juan Gutierrez would come on in the 10th and set the Rockies down in order recording his first save of the year.

The D-backs now head to Chicago for a series against the Cubs.
