Colorado Rockies prospect Kent Matthes hit a go-ahead homer Tuesday -- his fourth home run of the Arizona Fall League -- to give the Salt River Rafters a 4-3 win over the Surprise Suguaros.

Down 3-2, Matthes hit a two-run homer with no outs in the bottom of the eighth inning that scored Anthony Rendon and gave the Rafters their first lead of the game. Hitting cleanup, the right fielder had a hand in all four of the Rafters' runs, going 2-for-4 with two runs scored while driving in three.

It continues a torrid Fall League for Matthes, who has put up a .333/.404/.647 line with four home runs and 13 RBIs.

Matthes wasn't the only Rockies prospect to help the Rafters win. Corey Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored, catcher Jose Gonzelez went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk and reliever Cory Riordan pitched a scoreless eighth inning with a strikeout to pick up the win.
