GAME OF THE DAY

Diamondbacks fall out of lead in West

September 01, 2007|From the Associated Press

PHOENIX -- Cory Sullivan hit a two-run single in the eighth inning, then scored the go-ahead run on a 10th-inning error as the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat Arizona, 7-3, Friday night and drop the Diamondbacks out of first place in the West Division.

A day after overtaking the San Diego Padres, the Diamondbacks lost for the eighth time in 12 games and fell one percentage point behind the Padres.

Sullivan tripled against Tony Pena leading off the 10th. Kazuo Matsui followed with a grounder back to the mound, but Pena threw the ball wildly to first, allowing Sullivan to score.

Matt Herges (3-0) got the win as five Colorado pitchers combined on a three-hitter that included 3 1/3 hitless innings by the bullpen.
