Nolan Arenado hit his major league-leading 11th home run and Gerardo Parra also connected as the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-3 Sunday for a three-game sweep.

The Rockies swept a series in Phoenix for the first time since 2004. Colorado has won five of six from Arizona this season.

Arenado hit a two-run shot into the bullpen in left field in the sixth off reliever Randall Delgado. Parra hit a solo drive with two outs in the fifth.

Arenado also starred in the field, flagging down three scorching groundballs to third base and turning them into outs.

Chad Bettis (3-1) got the win after allowing three runs on nine hits in six innings. Jake McGee worked the ninth for his sixth save.

Shelby Miller (0-3) lasted only 3 2-3 innings, giving up three runs on four hits and four walks.
