D-backs close out series with 6-1 win over Rockies
PHOENIX—Paul Goldschmidt homered and drove in three runs while extending his hitting streak to 14 games, Wade Miley pitched eight sharp innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks rolled to a 6-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.
The Diamondbacks beat up the Rockies in the middle game of the series, getting a season-high 17 hits Tuesday night. They kept swinging and connecting in the finale, scoring five runs the first three innings off Josh Outman (0-2) on their way to 11 more hits.
Goldschmidt hit a pair of run-scoring doubles off Outman and a leadoff homer to right in the seventh inning, giving Miley (7-2) more than enough support in Arizona's fourth win in five games.
