Trumbo, Diamondbacks beat Rockies to avert sweep

Mark Trumbo homered for the fourth straight game, and the Arizona Diamondbacks averted a sweep by beating Colorado 5-3 on Sunday.

Wade Miley pitched eight strong innings to extend his mastery over the Rockies. He also had a career-best three hits, including an RBI single and benefited from a defense that turned five double plays as the Diamondbacks won for just the second time in nine games this season.

Miley improved to 7-0 with a 2.52 ERA in 10 career games against the Rockies, matching the longest winning streak against Colorado to start a career.

The winning pitcher in Arizona’s only other victory this season, Miley allowed two runs and seven hits.

Addison Reed gave up a leadoff single to Carlos Gonzalez in the ninth and Gonzalez stole second and went to third on catcher Miguel Montero’s throwing error. Troy Tulowitzki walked to put runners on the corners.
