LEADING OFF: Diamondbacks-Rockies, Dodgers-Cards, Cubs in DC
A look at what's happening around the majors today:
LeMahieu hits 2-run homer in 9th, Rox beat D-backs 5-4
DENVER (AP) — DJ LeMahieu found himself in the spotlight even if he doesn't much care for being in the spotlight.
Walk-off homers will do that. Especially the first one of his career, in the middle of a heated division race.
LeMahieu hit a two-run homer off Yoshihisa Hirano in the ninth inning, and the NL West-leading Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Wednesday night.

PHOENIX (AP) — Ahead all night, the Atlanta Braves watched a two-run lead disappear in the ninth inning. A day after losing to Boston on a two-run homer in the ninth, they could have folded.
Instead, the Braves found a way to scratch out a victory and increase their NL East lead.
Dansby Swanson scored the go-ahead run on Yoshihisa Hirano's wild pitch in the 10th inning, and the Braves recovered after blowing a two-run lead in the ninth to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 Thursday.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Christian Villanueva had a hard time walking, yet still managed to get a walk-off hit.

Murphy’s homer in 8th lifts Rockies past Diamondbacks 6-5
PHOENIX (AP) — Tom Murphy went almost two years between major-league home runs, but his first of the season came at the perfect time.
Murphy's two-out, pinch-hit solo home run in the eighth inning was the big hit in the Colorado Rockies' 6-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night.
Goldschmidt homers, Diamondbacks knock off Cardinals 4-2
PHOENIX (AP) — Paul Goldschmidt struck out his first two at-bats against Jack Flaherty, once on a slider. With two on in the fifth inning, Goldschmidt fell behind against the St. Louis right-hander and laid off two sliders like the one he chased earlier.
Another slider found too much of the plate and the reigning NL player of the month sent it over the wall in right.
Murphy’s 3 RBIs leads Diamondbacks in 5-3 win
MIAMI (AP) — John Ryan Murphy had a busy day at the plate.
Murphy drove in a career-high three runs to help the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 5-3 victory over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night.
"There wasn't a lot of runs tonight so it was nice to contribute to the ones that we did have," Murphy said.
Zack Godley (9-5) pitched five innings and allowed two runs and six hits for the Diamondbacks, who are 14-4 in their last 18 games.
D-backs face decisions at closer, middle infield
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — With two weeks left of spring training, the Arizona Diamondbacks still are grappling with a pair of significant unresolved issues.
One, who is the closer? Two, how to sort out the crowd at middle infield?
There is still plenty of time to work things out, manager Torey Lovullo said.
"I feel like it's still a little bit too early," he said, "but everybody is paying a lot of attention to some very key spots and you hit on a couple of them."
WBC experience leads Hirano to D-backs for late-inning role
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Yoshihisa Hirano is not one for formalities.

The 33-year-old right-hander agreed in December to a $6 million, two-year contract with the Diamondbacks after 12 seasons with Orix of Japan's Pacific League.
With his wife and two young children joining him, Hirano said he hopes the entire family will learn English.
