Diamondbacks-Rockies Preview

May 10, 2016 - 6:10 AM After Trevor Story and the Colorado Rockies pounded their way to early success in the season series, the Arizona Diamondbacks finally beat them at their own game.

The Diamondbacks hope the top half of their lineup continues leading the way Tuesday night when they try to win a season high-tying fifth straight and deal the pitching-challenged Rockies their seventh consecutive defeat at Coors Field.

Colorado (15-17) batted .292 with 16 home runs while averaging 6.7 runs in taking five of the first six road meetings with Arizona (16-18). Story did a ton of the damage for the Rockies, going 8 for 28 with five homers and 12 RBIs.

It looked like more of the same Monday when Story had two doubles and three RBIs as the hosts built a three-run lead in the fourth inning. The Diamondbacks, however, rallied for five in the fifth, two in the seventh and two in the ninth for a 10-5 win.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said the home loss was "disappointing after coming off such a high (Sunday's 2-0 win over San Francisco) on the road trip."

Jean Segura, Paul Goldschmidt, Jake Lamb and Welington Castillo, four of Arizona's top five hitters, went a combined 9 for 14 with two homers and eight RBIs.

Segura is batting .375 over his last six games, Castillo has gone 9 for 21 with seven RBIs in his past five and Lamb is 6 for 13 with six RBIs in his past three.

The Diamondbacks have averaged 6.5 runs during a four-game winning streak that's their longest since a five-game run April 17-21. Colorado starters have posted a 9.69 ERA in the club's worst home skid since April 25-May 18, 2015.

Arizona will try to keep up its hot hitting against Chris Rusin, who allowed seven runs and 13 hits over 4 1/3 innings of Thursday's 17-7 loss at San Francisco. He had given up one hit over five scoreless innings in a 5-2 road win over the Diamondbacks in his previous start April 30.

The left-hander is 2-1 with a 1.74 ERA in four career road starts against Arizona, including his time with the Chicago Cubs. Paul Goldschmidt is 3 for 7 against Rusin (1-0, 4.43 ERA), while David Peralta is 2 for 5 with a triple.

Peralta, though, could miss his third straight game with a bruised right forearm.

Rubby De La Rosa (3-4, 4.60) had this start pushed back after Arizona recalled Archie Bradley to work the opener. The right-hander gave up one run and struck out 16 in winning two straight starts before struggling to execute Wednesday.

De La Rosa allowed four runs and eight hits over 5 2/3 innings of a 4-3 loss at Miami. He's 1-3 with a 6.00 ERA in four road games, including a pair of starts.

"The first two innings, nothing was working," De La Rosa told the league's official website. "Everything was up and off the plate. After the second inning, I got a little better feeling about my pitches. The first two innings, I was falling behind."

De La Rosa, however, has gone 2-0 with a 3.32 ERA in four career outings at Coors.

Nolan Arenado has gone 3 for 6 with two home runs against him, while Carlos Gonzalez is 4 for 10 with a homer in the matchup. Gonzalez is batting .421 with four homers and 10 RBIs during a nine-game hitting streak against the Diamondbacks.
