PHOENIX (AP) — Kyle Freeland threw six solid innings, rookie Nolan Jones added an RBI double and the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Tuesday night.
The last-place Rockies beat the playoff-contending D-backs for just the third time in 12 tries this season.
The Diamondbacks are locked in a tight battle for one of three National League wild-card spots. They fell behind the Miami Marlins and Cincinnati Reds for the final spot after both those teams won Tuesday.
Arizona has lost six of its past eight.
