DENVER -- Pinch-hitter Ben Paulsen delivered a two-run walk-off single in the ninth inning, lifting the Rockies to a 5-4 comeback win over the D-backs on Monday night at Coors Field.
Trailing, 4-1, entering the ninth, Daniel Descalso and Jose Reyes reached base with one out. Nolan Arenado then missed a game-tying homer by inches, settling for a two-run single. DJ LeMahieu then delivered an infield single, and both runners moved up on a Brad Ziegler throwing error. Nick Hundley followed with a walk to load the bases, and Paulsen roped a single into center for his second walk-off hit this season. The rally made a winner out of reliever Simon Castro.
