PHOENIX (AP) — The Colorado Rockies scored 17 runs in winning their first two games in Arizona over the weekend.
Then they ran in to Zack Greinke.
The Arizona ace shut down one of baseball's most powerful offenses on Sunday in a 6-1 victory that snapped the Rockies' seven-game winning streak.
"Zack came out on a day when we could have been flat-lined and picked us up," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. "And we jumped on his back and he carried us a long way today."
ATLANTA (AP) — Arizona manager Torey Lovullo asked his team for a strong finish before the All-Star break.
Zack Greinke set the example.

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.

Greinke pitched six scoreless innings, Paul Goldschmidt homered and the Diamondbacks beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-2 on Saturday for their third consecutive win.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Neither Jarrod Dyson nor Justin Upton could tell whether Upton's bases-loaded line drive to the deepest part of center field would have made it out of Angel Stadium.
Dyson made sure nobody will ever know with a leaping, lunging catch that might have saved a win for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Aces low: Lots of top pitchers getting pounded in playoffs
