DENVER (AP) ? DJ LeMahieu found himself in the spotlight even if he doesn?t much care for being in the spotlight. Walk-off homers will do that. Especially the first one of his career Enrique Hernandez Jersey , in the middle of a heated division race.LeMahieu hit a two-run homer off Yoshihisa Hirano in the ninth inning, and the NL West-leading Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Wednesday night.?It was cool. Just a great moment,? the soft-spoken LeMahieu said. ?That was awesome.?LeMahieu launched a fastball over the fence in right as the Rockies kept their 1-game advantage over Los Angeles intact after the Dodgers beat Cincinnati earlier in the day. The Diamondbacks fell 3 games behind in the division race. This is the latest in the season the Rockies have been alone in first place since 1995.A night after getting his first career save, Hirano (4-3) allowed a single by Gerardo Parra off the glove of first baseman Paul Goldschmidt to begin the ninth. Charlie Blackmon bunted Parra over to second and LeMahieu followed with the walk-off homer. He was doused with water after crossing home plate as fans chanted ?DJ, DJ, DJ!??I was just looking to drive the ball. It was a lot of fun,? LeMahieu said.Hirano?s pitch to LeMahieu was the latest miscue by a struggling Arizona bullpen where some roles have been juggled.?He just made a mistake,? Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. ?He threw a fastball that could be taken the other way.?Overlooked in LeMahieu?s ninth-inning theatrics was the performance of Colorado?s bullpen, which turned in five perfect innings, including two each by Chris Rusin and Scott Oberg. Wade Davis (3-6) picked up the win by pitching a flawless ninth, including two strikeouts.That marks the first time the Rockies? bullpen has tossed five perfect innings in franchise history http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-manny-machado-jersey , according to the team.?Awesome the bullpen was able to do our job tonight, throw up a bunch of zeroes and give our team a chance,? Oberg said. ?In this building, really anything can happen from an offensive standpoint.?Nolan Arenado had a big night for the Rockies with two doubles, including a run-scoring one in the second, and a solo homer.LeMahieu?s blast spoiled a solid outing by Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin, who allowed a season-high 10 hits, but navigated his way through trouble. He went 6 1/3 innings and allowed three runs.The left-hander?s most crucial pitch was a slider to strike out LeMahieu with the bases loaded in the fourth.Arizona?s bullpen bent a little in the eighth, issuing two walks, only to have reliever Archie Bradley enter with two outs and get pinch-hitter Carlos Gonzalez to roll out.Eduardo Escobar?s homer in the third inning was his 21st of the season and sixth with the Diamondbacks since being acquired from the Minnesota Twins on July 27. Goldschmidt finished 2 for 4 with a double and extended his streak of reaching base to 48 straight road games. Alex Avila added a solo homer.?These are tough, tough to lose under these circumstances Logan Forsythe Jersey ,? Lovullo said. ?It hurts.?Since 2015, the Diamondbacks are now 17-6 against Colorado during games played in September or later ? including their win in the NL wild-card contest last October.Rockies starter Jon Gray labored on a night he didn?t have his best stuff. He lasted four innings and allowed four runs.?I wouldn?t be smiling like this if we didn?t win the game like we did,? Gray said.SCOREBOARD WATCHINGAsked if he watches scoreboards, manager Bud Black quipped: ?It?s hard not to. We have a beautiful scoreboard out there.?Playing right field, Gonzalez has a close-up view of the scoreboard over his shoulder.?When we?re not winning, I go like this,? he said, turning his heard as if he was looking at the scoreboard. ?Just to make sure the other team is not doing better.?WEIGHING INArenado and Trevor Story are both starting to get some mention in the NL MVP race. Gonzalez?s vote would be simple ? both.?Either way it goes, I will feel extremely happy,? he said of the possibility of a teammate winning the award.UP NEXTArizona RHP Clay Buchholz (7-2, 2.01 ERA) makes his first career start at Coors Field in the finale of a four-game series with Colorado on Thursday.

SAN DIEGO (AP) ? Even after watching Nelson Cruz drive his 79th pitch over the center field fence to make it a one-run game with one out in the ninth, San Diego Padres rookie Jacob Nix hoped manager Andy Green would let him finish.?I thought for sure he was going to leave me in there because of my pitch count,? Nix said after coming within two outs of his first complete game in his fourth big league start, a 2-1 victory against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night. ?I thought for sure I was going to be able to finish.?Green wasn?t buying it.?He?d done enough today. I didn?t want to put him in a situation where he was walking off that mound in a tie situation or a losing situation,? Green said.Nix, backed by stellar defense by shortstop Freddy Galvis and 21-year-old second baseman Luis Urias, who was making his big league debut, had the low pitch count because he had the Mariners swinging early and putting the ball in play. The 22-year-old Nix allowed one run and eight hits, walked none and struck out none.?That was crazy efficient. Clearly he had enough pitches to get the last few outs. He showed a glimpse,? Green said.?One day I?ll go nine Kenta Maeda Jersey ,? Nix said. ?And maybe I?ll mix in some punch-outs, too. I didn?t really get to two strikes a whole lot. They were putting the ball in play really early. Outs are outs. I?m here to get outs. I don?t care how I get them.?Travis Jankowski homered on Felix Hernandez?s first pitch and Urias had a nice game for the Padres, who snapped a five-game losing streak and won for just the second time in seven games.Nix (2-2) retired Jean Segura to open the ninth before Cruz homered to center, his 32nd. Kirby Yates came on to get the final two outs for his sixth save.Hernandez (8-12) pitched well but lost his sixth straight decision over eight starts. The former AL Cy Young Award winner, who briefly was demoted to the bullpen earlier this month, struck out a season-high nine and walked only two in seven innings. He allowed only four hits but three of them factored into the scoring.Jankowski drove Hernandez?s first pitch over the fence in right field, his third homer. Wil Myers doubled off Hernandez with one out in the fourth and scored on Hunter Renfroe?s two-out single to left.King Felix said there was ?frustration about the loss for sure. I haven?t won since June 30. It?s tough. I think I did a good job except for the bunts. The second bunt was pretty good.?Hernandez twice bunted into inning-ending double plays.Manager Scott Servais said that other than Jankowski?s homer, Hernandez ?controlled the strike zone pretty well.?It was Jankowski?s first career leadoff homer.?Obviously I?d never done that before and to do it off a guy of his caliber, that felt good,? Jankowski said. ?More importantly it got the team on the board early and got that energy going, that fire going early.?Urias Matt Kemp Jersey , one of baseball?s top prospects, was called up earlier in the day even though Triple-A El Paso has qualified for the Pacific Coast League playoffs and the Padres are on pace to lose 100 games for the first time since 1993.Urias was brilliant in making his first play, diving to his left to field a bouncer by leadoff hitter Mitch Haniger and throwing him out. Urias went 0 for 3 with a walk.?I don?t know how I made it,? Urias said. ?To be honest, I wasn?t nervous the whole game, maybe because of the diving play. I just enjoyed the moment.?Said Nix: ?They were making some ridiculous plays back there. Freddy and Uri both were making some really, really good plays.?TRAINER?S ROOMPadres: Green said LHP Clayton Richard will have season-ending surgery on his left knee. He was placed on the disabled list on Tuesday.
