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.
The Rockies overcame an early three-run deficit for their season-high seventh straight win. Colorado moved past Arizona into second place in the NL West and clinched its sixth consecutive series win against a team over .500, the first time in franchise history the Rockies have done so.
Murphy drove the first pitch he saw from Arizona’s Yoshihisa Hirano (2-2) over the left-field wall.
”I just went up there ready to hit a fastball again, made sure I didn’t miss this time,” Murphy said. ”It’s a great feeling, especially in a tight ball game like that when you can help the team win.”
Hirano, a top setup man, was into his second inning of work, which isn’t typical of his role.
”We asked a little bit more of Yoshi today,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. ”He just made a mistake to a hitter that squared up a split in the middle of the zone.”
Scott Oberg (6-0) got the win in relief for the second night in a row, though he gave up Nick Ahmed’s tying RBI single in the bottom of the seventh. Adam Ottavino pitched the eighth and Wade Davis, who was out Friday due to an illness, escaped a jam in the ninth for his 28th save.
”Contributions from everywhere,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. ”So many guys at different points of the game doing their thing. We’ve talked about it all year. We have our core guys, but it’s going to take all 25-plus.”
Diamondbacks starter Zack Godley had a three-run lead and a no-hitter through four innings Frank Zombo Jersey , but the Rockies scored two runs on three hits, a walk and a wild pitch in the fifth.
Steven Souza Jr. – hitting .185 coming in – had three hits and two RBIs, including a run-scoring single in the bottom of the fifth that pushed Arizona’s lead back up to two. But the Diamondbacks lost another high-scoring, close game at home to the surging Rockies.
”These are tough losses. These are grinding losses,” Lovullo said. ”These are the ones that really test your character and your togetherness and your belief in one another.
In the sixth, Godley threw wide on a bouncer back to the mound for an error before losing track of Ian Desmond at first base and allowing a stolen base. Desmond had driven in a run with a single, and reliever Silvino Bracho’s wild pitch allowed Trevor Story to score the tying run, making it 4-4.
Andrew Chafin relieved Bracho and got pinch hitter Raimel Tapia, the hero of Friday night’s win, to hit into a pitcher-to-third double play to end the inning.
Godley pitched five-plus innings and gave up three runs with six strikeouts and four walks.
The Diamondbacks struck for three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Colorado answered with Desmond’s triple to lead off the fifth, Garrett Hampson’s double and Charlie Blackmon’s two-out ground-rule double to make it 3-2.
Rockies starter Kyle Freeland lasted five innings and allowed four runs and five hits.
Hampson, called up before the game, made his major-league debut, playing second base. He turned in a nice play ranging far to his right to throw out Chris Owings at first base in the second inning, and his first major-league hit was a run-scoring double in the fifth.
Hampson also stole a hit from Jon Jay with a diving stop and throw in the eighth.
”Once that first pitch was thrown Vontae Davis Jersey , my nerves calmed down pretty good,” Hampson said. ”You step right into intense games. Every pitch matters. That’s what you play for.”
A POWERFUL PITCH
Eight-year-old Hailey Dawson threw out the ceremonial first pitch wearing a 3-D printed robotic hand. She has a condition from birth that caused her to have a missing right pectoral muscle and only two underdeveloped fingers on her right hand.
Hailey’s goal is to throw a first pitch at every Major League Baseball stadium. Eight ballparks remain on her list, which is expected to be completed by mid-September.
Rockies: 2B DJ LeMahieu was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain. Manager Bud Black said the two-time All-Star could miss a few weeks.
Diamondbacks: Pitcher T.J. McFarland (neck) threw 15 pitches off a mound Saturday and could come of the disabled list as soon as Monday. … OF Jarrod Dyson (groin) is doing baseball activities but not running the bases as yet.
Rockies: RHP Antonio Senzetela (3-2) is set to be reinstated from the disabled list to face Arizona after missing a turn in the rotation with a blister on his right middle finger.
Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke (10-5) makes his first start since before the All-Star Game after not pitching for the NL last Tuesday.
An Indiana prosecutor blasted President Donald Trump on Wednesday for politicizing the case of an immigrant illegally living in the U.S. and charged in a drunken crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man, saying his and others’ comments were ”ghoulish and inappropriate.”
Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said his office would ”vigorously prosecute” the case regardless of the suspect’s immigration status. Curry criticized Trump and others who cited the case as part of the nation’s immigration debate, noting that ”two innocent men lost their lives in this horrible incident.”
Curry filed felony charges earlier in the day against the suspect, Manuel Orrego-Savala, a citizen of Guatemala who has twice been deported from the U.S. Orrego-Savala is accused of driving the pickup truck that hit Jackson and his Uber driver, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, early Sunday in Indianapolis.
”We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy,” Curry, a Democrat, said in a statement. ”Much of such commentary, including tweets by the president, fails to acknowledge that both Edwin Jackson and Jeffrey Monroe lost their lives on Sunday. We will simply seek justice on behalf of the families of those two victims.”
Trump drew added attention to the case on Twitter, calling the highway collision ”disgraceful Travis Kelce Jersey ,” and prodded Democrats to work with him on illegal immigration and border security.
Orrego-Savala is charged with two counts each of causing death while driving intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident. The two more serious counts each carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
The 37-year-old said little during his initial court hearing Wednesday, responding through an interpreter as a judge explained the proceedings and charges. The judge set his bond at $200,000 after entering a not guilty plea on his behalf.
Investigators said Orrego-Savala was living illegally in the U.S. at the time of Sunday’s crash. Late Tuesday, he was charged by federal prosecutors with illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien. He faces up to 10 years in prison in that case, which would be handled after any state charges are resolved.
His defense attorney, Jorge Torres, said Orrego-Savala’s immigration status has no bearing on the drunken-driving case. He questioned whether his client could get a fair trial given the local publicity about the case and his immigration issues. Torres declined to comment on Trump’s tweets.
Torres said his client has been living and doing construction work in the Indianapolis area for several years.
”He’s very distraught to say the least,” Torres said. ”He’s very confused.”
Jackson’s family planned no response to Trump’s tweets about the crash and the suspect’s immigration status, according to a family spokesman.
”We’ll let the politicians do the politics while the family is just going to grieve and circle the wagons and try to heal from this tragic situation,” Atlanta attorney Daniel Meachum said Tuesday. ”The family is in shock, as you can imagine.”
Prosecutors allege Orrego-Savala was driving the vehicle that crashed into Jackson and Monroe as the two men stood outside Monroe’s car early Sunday along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis. Monroe was transporting Jackson for Uber, the ride-sharing service, and had pulled over after the 26-year-old football player became ill, investigators said.
Orrego-Savala was arrested shortly after the crash. A blood test conducted at a hospital determined he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.19 percent, more than double Indiana’s legal limit for driving Jason McCourty Jersey , according to court documents.
Orrego-Savala was deported in 2007 and again in 2009. In 2005, he was convicted for driving under the influence in Redwood City, California. He also has numerous other misdemeanor convictions and arrests in California and Indiana, said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Nicole Alberico.
In the 2005 case, he pleaded no contest to two separate drunken-driving offenses and was given a brief jail sentence, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Orrego-Savala remained jailed Wednesday in Indianapolis. Federal and county prosecutors spelled his last name as ”Orrego-Zavala” in charging documents, but his attorney said his name is spelled Orrego-Savala, a spelling that’s listed among his aliases in the federal documents.
Prosecutors filed a motion seeking a DNA sample from Orrego-Savala, arguing it could help determine whether he was in the truck that hit Jackson and Monroe. Prosecutors also said the sample would confirm his identity, noting his various aliases.
When Orrego-Savala appeared Tuesday before a judge who advised him of his rights, he told the judge through an interpreter: ”I wasn’t driving the car. I don’t know why I am here,” Indianapolis television station WRTV reported.
A police news release did not mention the presence of anyone else in the pickup truck.
