Rockies' Kyle Freeland struck by liner, sustains shoulder bruise

Rockies' Kyle Freeland struck by liner, sustains shoulder bruise”

The bottom of the fourth started with a scary moment when a Martinez line drive caught Freeland in the upper body and he needed to be removed from the game. He was later diagnosed with a left arm contusion.

J.D. Martinez, who earlier was named NL Player of the Week, had three hits and an RBI. Freeland stayed on his feet and was led off the field after a visit from a trainer. Neshek got a ground ball to third from Drury but Arenado was pulled into foul territory and his low throw skipped on first baseman Mark Reynolds and Drury was safe. Martinez came around to score, so Freeland was charged with two earned runs in three innings of work.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Carlos Gonzalez then walked off Jake Barrett (1-1), the third Arizona reliever of the inning. Holland struggled, but notched his 40th save.

Entering play Monday, the Diamondbacks are five games ahead of Colorado for the first N.L. Wild Card.

Arizona took a 1-0 lead when Martinez doubled with one out in the second inning before Brandon Drury walked.

Arenado's home run followed, giving him a major-league leading 123 runs batted in on the season. That ended up being huge when he scored the go-ahead run on a sac fly to left from Adam Rosales. "He started making pitches", Rockies manager Bud Black said.

He tied the game 2-2 in the sixth with his two-out, RBI double to right-center off Greinke, scoring DJ LeMahieu, who had a one-out double to left off a Greinke breaking ball.

Martinez reached on an infield single in the last of the fourth inning, after his line drive struck Freeland in the left shoulder and rolled toward third base. Two batters later, and with two outs, Arenado blistered a 1-0 fastball off the center field wall - A.J. Pollock gave a nice effort, just may have mistimed his jump - and the game was once again tied, 2-2.

Anderson gave the Rockies everything they could have wanted.

Colorado Rockies announced Friday that they reinstated Anderson from the 60-day disabled list and recalled right-handed pitcher Jairo Diaz from Triple-A Albuquerque; Diaz was then placed on the 60-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

Freeland said he was OK after the game, though he expected soreness. "It was a quick call".

The Diamondbacks struck first.

Colorado made it 1-1 in the third inning when Jonathan Lucroy led off with a triple and scored on LeMahieu's two-out single.

Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon has cemented his name into the National League MVP conversation by being one of the best leadoff hitters in the history of the game and obliterating some long standing records.

Rockies closer Greg Holland notched his 40th save, the third time in his career he's had 40 or more saves.

Arizona Diamondbacks' Jake Barrett (33) kicks the dirt at the mound after giving up a three-run home run to Colorado Rockies' Nolan Arenado, right, during the eighth inning of a baseball game Monday, Sept. 11, 2017, in Phoenix.

Greinke, with his fifth-inning strikeout of Anderson, reached 200 strikeouts on the season for the sixth time in his career, all six times since 2009. The others were Randy Johnson (five times), Curt Schilling (twice), Dan Haren (twice) and Robbie Ray.

Arizona's J.D. Martinez is batting.450 (18-for-40) with three doubles, eight home runs and 17 RBIs over his last nine games.
