PHOENIX (AP) — Rookie Ryan Castellani threw six strong innings, Trevor Story hit his ninth homer of the season and the Colorado Rockies snapped a seven-game losing streak by beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2.
Colorado leadoff hitter Rafael Tapia had three hits and knocked in the go-ahead run with his single in the fifth.
He also made a crucial catch against the outfield wall on Kole Calhoun’s long fly ball that ended the seventh.
Arizona right-hander Taylor Clarke made his first start of the year after Merrill Kelly was scratched before the game.
The 27-year-old gave up two runs, but just one earned, over four innings.
