Rockies Win Over D-Backs Pushes Lead to 3 - 0

By  | 

DENVER - The Colorado Rockies' magical late-season run
continues. Yorbit Torrealba hit a three-run home run to break a
sixth inning tie that sent the Colorado Rockies to a 4-1 win over
Arizona in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.
The Rockies have won 20 of their last 21 games. They own a
commanding 3-0 lead in the NLCS.
Matt Holliday's home run in the first inning off Arizona starter
Livan Hernandez gave the Rockies a 1-0 lead. But Arizona's Mark
Reynolds answered with a solo home run in the top of the fourth
inning.
The Rockies' sterling defense turned three double plays in the
first three innings in support of starting pitcher Josh Fogg. Fogg
went six innings for the win. Jeremy Affeldt, Brian Fuentes and
Manny Corpas closed out the D-Backs with three shutout innings of
relief.
Hernandez was charged with four runs in his five and two-thirds
innings.
The Rockies go for the sweep at home Monday night. Colorado
sends out Franklin Morales against Micah Owings of the
Diamondbacks.
