Rockies outlast D-backs
The Associated Press
PHOENIX — Corey Dickerson hit a tiebreaking homer with two outs in the top of the 10th inning, and the Colorado Rockies avoided a seventh straight loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks with a 5-3 win Sunday.
Dickerson, hitless in four previous at-bats, sent an 0-1 pitch from Oliver Perez (2-2) into the pool deck in right field for his 14th home run of the season.
The Rockies snapped a three-game skid overall and won for just the second time in 10 games.
Wilin Rosario, whose throwing error allowed the Diamondbacks to take a 3-2 lead in the fourth, hit a solo home run to tie the game in the sixth. Rosario singled in a run in the 10th to pad the Rockies’ lead.
Ben Paulsen, called up Sunday to replace the injured Carlos Gonzalez on the roster, hit his first major league home run in the second, evening the score at 2.
Mark Trumbo doubled down the right field line in the first off Franklin Morales to drive in Ender Inciarte and Aaron Hill and give Arizona the lead.
Diamondbacks starter Wade Miley struck out eight in six innings, allowing three runs on five hits with two walks. Morales was also fairly sharp, allowing two earned runs on five hits in six innings.
Matt Belisle (3-6) got one out by working out of a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the ninth for the win. LaTroy Hawkins picked up his 18th save by striking out the side in the 10th.

Rockies: Right-hander Jordan Lyles makes his second start since returning from two months on the disabled list with a broken left hand. He’s 6-1 in 13 starts and faces the San Diego Padres on the road on Monday. Lyles has allowed nine runs in 8 1-3 innings over two starts against the Padres this season.
