The Rockies roared back from an early 5-0 deficit, but it was all for naught.

I’m just going to leave this here, because it once again applies to Monday night’s game in Arizona.

The Colorado Rockies bullpen once again blew a multi-run lead in Monday's 12-9 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

Down 5-0 early thanks to a rare rough start from Tyler Anderson, the Rockies scored three runs in each of the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to take a 9-6 lead in the middle of the sixth.

Jordan Lyles came on in relief of Anderson in the bottom of the sixth and got the first two batters out before giving up three straight singles and a grand slam to Yasmany Tomas, giving Arizona a 10-9 lead. Jake McGee then gave up solo home runs to Mitch Haniger and Brandon Drury, increasing the Rockies' deficit to 12-9, a deficit from which they would not recover.

The Rockies will look to even the series tomorrow night as Jorge De La Rosa takes on Robbie Ray, first pitch is at 7:40 p.m. Mountain time.
