PHOENIX (AP) - Stephen Drew homered and had four RBIs, Kelly Johnson hit a two-run shot and the Arizona Diamondbacks held off Colorado 10-9 Thursday night to complete a three-game sweep of the fading Rockies.
Colorado had won 13 of 15 in another late-season run to get close in the NL West, but leaves the desert 3½ games behind San Francisco in the division and Atlanta in the wild-card race.
Jeff Francis (4-6) struggled in his second start off the disabled list and the Rockies got little production from Troy Tulowitzki to go home on a debilitating four-game losing streak.
Carlos Gonzalez hit his first career grand slam in the seventh inning and added a two-run single in Colorado's three-run ninth, but the Rockies couldn't come all the way back.
