DENVER (AP) ? Ketel Marte was told his playing time would decrease. A struggling bullpen was informed their roles would be juggled.They responded in a big way. Marte drove in four runs Tommy Hunter Jersey , including a two-out, two-run triple to break a sixth-inning tie, reliever Yoshihisa Hirano helped Arizona weather a ninth-inning scare for his first big league save and the Diamondbacks pulled closer in the NL West standings by beating the first-place Colorado Rockies 6-3 on Tuesday night.The Diamondbacks cut their deficit in the division to 2 games. The Rockies maintained a 1 -game advantage over the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost for a second straight day in Cincinnati. Colorado is chasing after its first NL West crown in franchise history.?We needed to win a game,? said reliever Brad Ziegler, whose team stopped a three-game skid. ?It doesn?t matter how it happens as long as we walk away happy at the end of the night.?With Marte, the plan is to use the Daniel Descalso a little more down the stretch. Marte made his case to remain in the lineup with his league-leading 11th triple. He also added a two-run single in the eighth for a 6-3 lead.?I?ll be ready whenever they need me,? Marte said.As for the bullpen, it?s been altered after some struggles of late.?They kind of said from about the sixth inning on, everybody be ready at any point Will Middlebrooks Jersey ,? Ziegler explained.Zack Greinke (14-9) gave up two runs in the first before recovering his command to allow three runs in 6 2/3 innings. He retired 15 straight batters at one point as he beat the Rockies for a third time this season.Pinch-hitter Matt Holliday nearly tied the game at 4 in the seventh off Greinke, with his two-out double to right-center hitting off the top of the wall. That would?ve been a homer in his first stint with the Rockies, but team the raised the wall in 2016.Andrew Chafin relieved Greinke and walked two straight. He was replaced by Brad Ziegler, who retired DJ LeMahieu on a groundout. Ziegler also bottled up the Rockies in the eight.Jake Diekman started the ninth, only to surrender a double to Carlos Gonzalez and a bunt single to Ryan McMahon. Hirano struck out two straight, then retired Charlie Blackmon on a flyout.?We had a lot of chances. Tonight we didn?t get the big hit,? Rockies manager Bud Black said. ?They made some pitches when they needed to.?Antonio Senzatela (4-6) gave up two runs in the first and four runs total over six innings. The Rockies pitching staff has a 7.75 ERA in the opening frame.Senzatela was cruising along until two outs in the sixth when he thought he threw strike three to end a harmless inning. Paul Goldschmidt took the pitch for a ball and followed with a double. A.J. Pollock reached on an infield single, and Marte lined a changeup past a diving McMahon at first to make 4-2.Greinke masterfully varied speeds and pitches all night to keep the Rockies off balance. A sample: He struck out McMahon on a 90 mph fastball, Tony Wolters on a 83 mph slider and both Trevor Story and Carlos Gonzalez on curves ranging from 65-to-67 mph.?You just never know what you?re going to get,? Story said. ?He just keeps hitters off balance.?EXPLOSIVE FIRSTDavid Peralta hit a two-run homer in the first that landed in the trees over the fence in straightaway center. Colorado answered as Blackmon doubled to lead off the first. Nolan Arenado and Story both delivered RBI doubles.THIS & THATGoldschmidt finished 1 for 3 with a walk to extend his streak of reaching base in road games to 47 straight. ?

A native of the Dominican Republic, Colon has four more victories than countryman and Hall of Famer Juan Marichal.?He?s been doing it for so long Jake Arrieta Jersey , he knows when he gives up some runs he can come back and keep the game close,? Chirinos said. ?That?s what he did tonight.?Chirinos? 443-foot drive into the visitors? bullpen in left-center was his 16th homer of the season and ended Arizona right-hander Zack Greinke?s streak of nine straight starts allowing two runs or fewer. Chirinos added an RBI single in the eighth.Ronald Guzman led off the third with his 13th homer after Greinke (12-8) retired the first six Texas hitters.Greinke permitted six hits and four runs in 6 1/3 innings with two walks and six strikeouts while dropping his third straight start after winning his previous seven decisions.?I think they?re the best offense in baseball the last month,? Greinke said. ?So going in in their home park is going to be tough. But I made more mistakes and got behind in more counts than needed to make it a little bit tougher.?Colon gave up four hits and three runs while setting a Texas record with his 22nd straight start with two or fewer walks. He issued one free pass and struck out three. Colon has won both his starts in August after losing all five in July.Rangers reliever Eddie Butler retired all six batters he faced.

Could it be better? Yeah.?NICE SNAG, SKIPBanister made a nifty Nick Williams Jersey , one-handed catch on a bouncer into the dugout from Guzman in the fourth inning, reaching above his head with his right hand. Three innings earlier, he stayed away from a smash by Escobar. Both were batting left-handed. ?It was just inside my reach,? Banister said. ?The first one I was not going to be able to catch. That one was coming pretty hard. That one would have hurt for a long time.?TRAINER?S ROOMRangers: RHP Doug Fister is headed home for the season because his right knee strain isn?t responding to treatment as hoped.
