Rockies 4, Diamondbacks 3: Todd Helton hits game-winning homer and 500th double to take two of three

Todd Helton became the 50th player to hit 500 career doubles when he knocked one off the right field scoreboard in the third inning. He would then hit a solo homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to put the Rockies ahead of the D'Backs 4-3.

We salute you, Todd Helton!

The bullpen pitched well today, as Matt Daley threw a 1-2-3 inning with two strikeouts and Juan Rincon followed in the eighth with a 1-2-3 inning. And just to shake things up, Huston Street also threw a 1-2-3 inning.
