Betancourt’s blown save ruins Chacin’s solid start

D.J. LeMahieu and the Colorado Rockies fumbled away a lead in Tuesday night’s game in Phoenix, Ariz. “We got walked off,” Rockies’ manager Jim Tracy said. “That is simply what it boils down to.”
Jhoulys Chacin finished 3-5 with a 4.43 ERA in 14 starts and 69 innings after missing more than three months with right shoulder inflammation. “For Jhoulys Chacin to finish up in the matter which he did you have to be extremely encouraged by that,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.
Gerardo Parra and the Arizona Diamondbacks stole a 5-3 victory from the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night in Phoenix, Ariz. Aaron Hill’s second career walk-off home run and first since 2006 assured the Diamondbacks of a nonlosing season.
Rockies rumpus

Patrick Corbin has allowed only three unintentional walks in his last six starts spanning 26 1/3 innings. ... The Rockies came into the game with only four of seven players on the bench healthy enough to play. ... Diamondbacks C Miguel Montero singled in the fourth for his career-high 139th hit of the season. ...
