PHOENIX (AP) — Colorado’s bid to gain ground in the NL West
appeared to be in jeopardy when German Marquez gave up a leadoff double and a
two-run homer in the opening inning.The right-hander shook off those two
first-pitch hits Barry Larkin
, shutting down the Arizona Diamondbacks the rest of the way
in a game the Rockies needed to win.Marquez struck out 11 in seven innings and
Ian Desmond had three RBIs, lifting Colorado to a 6-2 win over the Diamondbacks
on Friday night.“After the home run, I saw a little different mound presence
from Marquez,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “He said, ‘Ok, that’s it, nothing
else is going to happen.’ That was pretty cool.”The Rockies bounced back nicely
after a three-game sweep by the Los Angeles Dodgers dropped them 2 1/2 games
back in the NL West and 1 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the second NL wild
card.The Cardinals won again, but the Dodgers lost 5-3 to San Diego, leaving the
Rockies 1 1/2 back in the division.Marquez (13-10) put them in
position ,
shaking off David Peralta’s homer in the first inning with six scoreless frames.
He allowed six hits and tied Pedro Astacio (1999) for second on Colorado’s
single-season strikeout list with 210. Marquez is the third Colorado pitcher —
with Astacio and Ubaldo Jimenez — with 200 strikeouts in a season.The
right-hander’s outing gave the Rockies time to adjust to Zack Greinke.Greinke
(14-11) carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning and struck out six, but the
Rockies scored four runs in the eighth after he left with one out. Desmond hit a
two-run single off Brad Ziegler in Colorado’s team-record 42nd road win.“We are
a good team,” Marquez said through a translator. “We always believe in our
offense and know that at any given moment, we’re going to break out of this. It
was a great feeling to come out of the game and see them put up those
runs.”Arizona had its chances, but failed in a couple of key situations while
going 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position. The Diamondbacks have lost five
of six to drop six games behind the Cardinals in the wild-card race.“I didn’t
feel like they were awful pitches, just good hitting,” Ziegler said.Greinke
allowed four runs in 6 1/3 innings in a loss to Houston his last start. The
right-hander was sharp early on against the Rockies, not allowing a ball out of
the infield for the first two innings or a hit until Desmond’s run-scoring
single with one out in the fifth.D.J. LeMahieu tied it at 2 with a run-scoring
double off Greinke in the sixth.Greinke allowed three runs and four hits in 7
1/3 innings.“You get out to a 2-0 lead you feel like things are going to go in a
real good direction, especially the way Zack has thrown the ball Billy

,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “He was
executing a great game plan and I thought he had some of the best stuff he had
all year. They chipped away on at him and obviously the eighth inning got away
from us.”KEY REVIEWColorado’s four-run eighth came after a video review went in
its favor.With two runners on and one out, LeMahieu hit a ball back to Ziegler,
who fired it to second. Shortstop Nick Ahmed tried to turn a double play, but
made a weak throw to first as Charlie Blackmon slid hard into second
base.Blackmon kicked his leg out and raised his arms, prompting the Diamondbacks
to call for an umpire review for runner interference. After a long review, the
play was upheld and the Rockies went on to score four runs in the inning.“It’s
pretty clear to me by the letter of the law that it is an illegal slide,”
Ziegler said. “It is unfortunate that they didn’t see it that way. When you
watch the replay, it’s obvious that he made contact with his hands.”TRAINER’S

Friday’s game, but Black said he still could be out two or three more games with

of aces featuring Price, Chris Sale and Rick Porcello, is tough to

the 2019 World Series; both are +700, meaning a $100 bet would net a profit of
$700. They are followed by the Yankees (+800), Dodgers (+800) and Chicago Cubs
