The Rockies looked like they had an easy win in the 4th inning when they led 5-0, but things quickly fell apart when they needed 3 pitchers to get through the 6th inning. Tied at 5, they went into 12 innings and 7 pitchers before Ryan Spilborghs finally knocked in the winning run.

Hernandez looked good for 5 innings but gave up 4 runs in the 6th inning while getting only 1 out and leaving 2 men on base. Rusch came out and threw 4 balls to load the bases, then was pulled for Vizcaino, who struck out the first batter, but then allowed consecutive hits to tie the game.

Because the D'backs lost, they have now pulled to 5 games back, and 3.5 back of the Dodgers. There's still a (very small) glimmer of hope for Rockies fans.
