After struggling for most of the night against D-backs starter Livan Hernandez, the Rockies broke through in the ninth against Brandon Lyon. Garrett Atkins led off with a walk and Troy Tulowitzki drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI double.
Livan Hernandez turned in his best outing of the young season, scattering nine hits over eight innings and striking out a season-high eight batters. But, with the game tied in the ninth, Brandon Lyon was tagged for two runs, taking the loss.
