The Colorado Rockies used a six-run fifth inning to defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 10-5, on Tuesday night at Coors Field.

Things got started in the decisive inning with a Brandon Barnes single and a Kyle Kendrick sacrifice fly. Then Charlie Blackmon doubled in Barnes before DJ LeMahieu capped off his 1,876,012th good at-bat of the season with a walk. Troy Tulowitzki singled in Blackmon, raising his average with runners in scoring position to .399 (clutch) and Nolan Arenado cleared the bases with a three-run home run to turn a 4-2 deficit into a 7-4 lead.

The blast was Arenado's second of the night and his career-high 19th on the season.

Wilin Rosario finished the big inning with a homer of his own, a solo shot to give the Rockies their eighth run. LeMahieu and Barnes added home runs in later innings, giving Colorado five jacks on the evening.

Kyle Kendrick gave the Rockies a very Kyle Kendrick-ian performance, allowing four runs on eight hits, including three homers, in six innings. He struck out three and walked one en route to his first win of the year at 20th and Blake.

The Diamondbacks are now 0-10 in the last ten contests they've played while sitting at one game below .500
