Rockies use 5-run 8th for 6-4 victory over Diamondbacks

DENVER — On a day when he got a break from his job as the Colorado Rockies starting shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki stepped into a starring role of a different sort.  Tulowitzki started a five-run eighth inning with his first career pinch-hit home run, and the Rockies rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 Thursday.

third time in 4 years, our company outing included a Rockies day game – must be summer (thanks PS Audio!)

  • 2nd consecutive year the home team has been in the NL West cellar (5th of 5 teams)
  • 2nd consecutive year the home team trailed late, hit multiple homers & squeaked out the victory

telling ya: I just might be the Rockies’ good luck charm – 4 wins in a row.  MAGIC 🙂
