After being shut down by Diamondbacks starter Shelby Miller through three innings, the Colorado Rockies stormed back with six runs in the top of the fourth.

Shortstop Trevor Story started the barrage with a solo home run, his third of the season, to cut the Arizona lead to 2-1:

Following Story's homer, Carlos Gonzalez and Gerardo Parra reached with singles, setting the table for catcher Nick Hundley, who launched a three-run home run into the left-field stands, giving Colorado a 4-2 lead:

The Rockies were not done, either, Ben Paulsen then doubled thanks in part to a misplay in left field by Yasmany Tomas and DJ LeMahieu got in on the action with a two-run homer, also to left:

Much as they did last night, the Rockies used a big inning to erase an early Arizona lead, going from 2-0 down to 6-2 up in a span of just seven batters. The Rockies still hold that 6-2 lead in the sixth.
