DENVER - Wilin Rosario is trying to end a disappointing season with a strong finish. Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey . He got off to a good start in the Colorado Rockies fight to stay out of the cellar. Rosario hit a two-out, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Rockies rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 on Thursday night. Rosario finished with four hits to lift the Rockies into a fourth-place tie with Arizona in the NL West. "Hes been through a challenging year but hes worked hard and he has a great attitude," manager Walt Weiss said. "Hes battled through some physical things. Its good for Wilin. Its a big night for him." Corey Dickerson led off the ninth with a single against Addison Reed (1-7). Two outs later Rosario, hit a towering drive an estimated 447 feet into the seats in left on the first pitch to give the Rockies their third straight win. Rosario raised his arms triumphantly after the first walk-off home run of his career. "I hit the ball good. I got that pitch up in the zone and I did my thing. When I see the outfielder running back hard I said, If he catches it we lost. If it hits the stands we win." The Diamondbacks blew a five-run lead to deny starter Vidal Nuno his first win since coming to Arizona in a July 6 deal with the New York Yankees. Nuno allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out eight in 5 1-3 innings. "I felt bad for Nuno. He pitched very good for us," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "We couldnt hold him. And finally got walked off." LaTroy Hawkins (4-3) pitched a perfect top of the ninth. Michael Cuddyer homered among his three hits for the Rockies. Jordan Pacheco and Ender Inciarte each had two hits and two RBIs for the Diamondbacks. Arizona came into the weekend series a game ahead of Colorado, which has been in the cellar since the All-Star break. The Rockies are trying to avoid a third straight last-place finish. "Its been a tough year for the team in general. Right now we showed us and the world we can play baseball here," Rosario said. "We come back, we fight, we do everything we have to, and for me thats finishing strong." Colorado rookie Yohan Flande was pulled after five innings and failed to get his first win in his ninth major league start Arizona fell behind 1-0 on Cuddyers eighth home run leading off the second. Inciartes two-run single in the third gave the Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead, and then they scored four more in the sixth. The Rockies made it close with two runs in the sixth and two more in the eighth. Josh Rutledge lined out to right with two on and two out to end the eighth. WALKING THE WALK Rosarios game winner may have been his first walk-off home run but the Rockies have had plenty of success in their last at-bats. It was the ninth time this season theyve won on a walk-off hit and the fourth time it has come on a home run. Drew Stubbs was the last to do it when he hit a three-run shot against Cincinnati on Aug. 17. HARD LUCK PITCHER Nuno has pitched well enough in 12 starts for the Diamondbacks to earn a win, it just hasnt happened. Before allowing six runs to San Diego on Sept. 12 he had gone five starts allowing two runs or fewer. Still, he hasnt been able to crack the win column in the NL. TRAINERS ROOM Diamondbacks: RHP Daniel Hudson will be shut down for the rest of the season. He pitched an inning in relief against San Diego on Sept. 3 after missing more than 26 months due to two Tommy John surgeries. He had two more relief appearances and manager Kirk Gibson he had no setbacks. "Not because of an injury, just because hes come back from a long rehab process," Gibson said. "We were thinking four appearances (and) he got through three. Liked what we saw." Rockies: 3B Nolan Arenado is done for the year because of a bruised chest and pneumonia. "That pneumonia is going to zap him for a while," manager Walt Weiss said. "Even when hes feels like hes ready to go, he is going to be short-winded out here." UP NEXT Diamondbacks: RHP Chase Anderson (9-6) will make his final start of the season. He held the Padres to two runs in five innings Saturday and has now logged a career-high 148 1-3 innings. Rockies: RHP Jordan Lyles (6-3) will try for his first career win against the Diamondbacks. He is 0-2 in five starts against them, three while he was with Houston. Donovan Smith Jersey . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. Jameis Winston Jersey .m. ET, CBSOPENING LINE — Falcons by 3 1/2RECORD VS.The Los Angeles Clippers will try to knot their Western Conference semifinals series with the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday in a Game 4 Mothers Day matinee at the Staples Center. You can watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO at 3pm et/Noon pt. The Thunder reclaimed the home-court advantage LA took with a Game 1 win on Friday night with a 118-112 road win in Game 3. MVP Kevin Durant totaled 36 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Russell Westbrook had 23 points, eight boards and 13 assists for the Thunder. Serge Ibaka contributed 20 points for Oklahoma City, which has won the last two contests in the series. Caron Butler went 3-for-5 from beyond the arc in the fourth quarter and provided nine of his 14 points in the final period. Reggie Jackson also scored 14 points in a reserve role. "We did a good job of playing with poise throughout the game," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "I thought we did a good job of staying together. In that fourth quarter, our defense went up another level and we made some big shots." Blake Griffin notched 34 points and eight rebounds for the Clippers. Chris Paul chipped in 21 points and 16 assists. The Clippers lost despite turning the ball over only six times, but their downfall was defense. The Thunder shot 55.7 percent from the field, including 11-of-18 (61.1 percent) in the fourth quarter. "We obviously have to play defense better and I haave to coach defense better," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. Demar Dotson Jersey. "Neither team played a lot of defense tonight." Jamal Crawford, who was named the NBAs Sixth Man of the Year on Thursday, totaled 20 points in a losing cause. DeAndre Jordan had 10 points and 11 rebounds, while Matt Barnes added 14. This marked the first time, regular season and playoffs, that the Clippers lost a game (35-1) at home when leading after three quarters. Griffins layup had the hosts within 108-107 with 2:33 remaining, but Westbrook then drained a 3-pointer from the top of the arc. Following a Paul missed 3, Durant sank a turnaround shot over Paul from the right wing to make it a 113-107 margin. "Were used to getting stops in those situations, but we didnt tonight," Paul said. Two free throws from Jackson made it 115-107 with 22.7 seconds left, essentially sealing OKCs victory. The Thunder are a playoff-tested group. They made the NBA Finals two years ago and didnt advance past this round last season because Westbrook went down with a knee injury. "I think we did a good job of weathering the storms throughout the game and sticking together," Durant said. "Were going to have to do that even more next game if we want to win. Its going to be probably the toughest game of the series." The Clippers have never gotten past this round. Game 5 will be Tuesday night back in Oklahoma City. Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
