For a second night in a row the Colorado Rockies were unable to close things out in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but, unlike on Monday, Tuesday's game ended in a 5-3 loss. Aaron Hill hit a three-run home run off closer Rafael Betancourt to end the game.
The Rockies opened the scoring in the second inning on a Charlie Blackmon double play and then regained the lead in the eighth inning on a Jordan Pacheco two-run double that had been set up by a Josh Rutledge single and a Tyler Colvin double.
Jhoulys Chacin finished the season at 3-5 with a 4.43 ERA after pitching five shutout innings. He struck out four while allowing three hits and two walks. Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin (6-8, 4.54 ERA) went seven innings and surrendered a run on Blackmon's double play. David Hernandez allowed the Pacheco two-run double. Brad Ziegler (6-1) picked up the win.
