PHOENIX — Josh VanMeter hit a three-run homer, David Peralta and Tim Locastro both had three hits and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 11-5 to sweep a doubleheader.
The Diamondbacks have won four straight games on their current homestand. Zac Gallen struck out a career-high 10 over six innings to lead Arizona to a 4-0 victory in the first game.
Colorado’s loss in the first game, coupled with other results Friday night, eliminated the Rockies from playoff contention. Last-place Arizona was already out of the postseason chase.
The Rockies fell to 25-33 on the 2020 season after a promising 11-3 start. The season wraps up with a game tomorrow night in Arizona and one more on Sunday afternoon.
