DENVER – With Arizona Diamondback’s ace Zack Greinke on the hill on Tuesday night, the second game of this four-game set was always going to be an uphill battle for the Colorado Rockies.
And it turned out to be a hill just a bit to steep to climb.
They battled and gave themselves a chance to win at many turns up couldn’t come up with the big hit, falling by a score of 6-3 to even the series.
Started Antonio Senzatela did a fine enough job, giving up a few runs early and late but giving his team a chance to win by keeping them in the game against Greinke.
You already know how the game started, though.
The Diamondbacks took an early lead on a blooping single to center from Eduardo Escobar and a no-doubt two-run bomb off the bat of David Peralta who blasted one to right. Senzatela settled down after that, walking Paul Goldschmidt but not allowing any further damage.
