Carlos Gonzalez hit his 40th homer of the year in the Rockies' extra innings loss to the Diamondbacks.

The Rockies' offense wasted no time getting things started, plating two runs on three straight singles and a sac fly in the first.

Arizona cut the lead to one after Paul Goldschmidt drove AJ Pollock in with a single in the bottom half of the first, Goldschmidt's 106th RBI of the year.

Carlos Gonzalez smacked his 40th homerun of the season in the top of the third, bringing him back within one of Nolan Arenado's 41. CarGo's solo shot was just the ninth long ball allowed by Robbie Ray this year.

Ender Inciatre reached on a one-out triple in the bottom of the third and scored on a Brandon Drury groundout.

David Peralta's leadoff triple in the fourth allowed the D-Backs to tie the game 3-3 on a sacrifice fly from Jake Lamb.

Christian Bergman sat the top of Arizona's lineup down in order in the fifth to cap his night. Bergman worked five innings, allowing three runs on five hits, a walk and three strikeouts.

Robbie Ray was done after six innings, giving up three runs -- two earned -- on seven hits, two walks and three strikeouts.

Scott Oberg came on in the sixth for the Rockies, facing the minimum after a strikeout of Goldschmidt and walk to Peralta, before getting Wellington Castillo to ground into a double play.

Justin Miller and one pitch from Rex Brothers combined to keep the Diamondbacks from capitalizing on a two-out double off the bat of Socrates Brito in the seventh.

The Rockies blew an opportunity to break the deadlock in the top of the eighth, when Nolan Arenado was picked off between third and home on a missed squeeze attempt with DJ LeMahieu batting. LeMahieu lined out to David Peralta to end the inning.

Jairo Diaz worked a perfect eighth inning, picking up a strikeout and two soft groundouts on seven pitches.

Boone Logan struck out the side in the ninth to send the game into extras.

Brooks Brown came on for the Rockies in the 11th. He walked three straight batters, throwing just one strike in 13 pitches. With the bases loaded and no outs, Walt Weiss brought in Christian Friedrich.

Pinch hitter Phil Gosselin ended the game on a one-out base hit to right field, scoring Paul Goldschmidt.

W: Delgado (7-4)

L: Brown (1-3)
