The D-backs entered the bottom of the eighth inning with a one-run lead after the Rockies plated one in the top half of the frame. The lead quickly expanded to three when Wilin Rosario haphazardly hucked a ball up the right field line on the last of three consecutive bunts from Arizona hitters. The Snakes tacked on another run on an RBI single from David Peralta (and his career OPS of roughly 9.000 against the Rockies) for good measure.
But really, the error was the thing most indicative of the Rockies' current series, road trip, season, decade, existence ... you get the picture.
Yes, there was a game prior to that comedic masterpiece. The Rockies weren't particularly good at that portion, either, falling into a 2-0 hole before digging their way back to a tie, only to see starter David Hale allow a couple more runs to put Arizona back on top.
Hale made it through five innings, surrendering three earned runs on five hits and three walks.
Charlie Blackmon and DJ LeMahieu went a combined 5-for-8 from atop the Rockies' lineup. LeMahieu's batting average has climbed back to an even .300.
Rosario and Drew Stubbs both finished 0-for-4. Rosario drove in the Rockies' run in the eighth when he beat out an attempted double play, but Stubbs followed by grounding into an inning-ending force out. He did so with runners at the corners and Carlos Gonzalez available on the bench.
CarGo eventually came into the game as a defensive replacement and grounded out with two down and nobody on base in the ninth.
