in left-center field, scoring A.J. Pollock without a throw.
Ross also had an RBI triple. Pollock went 3-for-5 with a homer and scored
twice for the Diamondbacks, winners in four of their last five.
J.J. Putz (2-0) earned the win after tossing a perfect 10th. Starter Wade
Miley threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings. He ran into trouble in the fifth after
walking a pair and giving up a single to load the bases.

an RBI for the Rockies, losers in five of their last seven.
