Dramatic Diamondbacks rally dooms Rockies

PHOENIX (AP) - Gerardo Parra and Chris Young homered off Huston Street in the ninth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks stunned Colorado 3-2 in 11 innings on Thursday night to take two of three from the Rockies.

Justin Upton's bloop single to right off Matt Belisle (2-2) brought in the winning run after Young narrowly missed another homer with a double off the overhang in left-center.

Street blew his first save in 12 tries this season after Jason Hammel had thrown seven scoreless innings.

Parra's one-out opposite field homer cut it to 2-1, then Young's two-out shot to left tied it.

Jose Morales drove in two runs off Arizona starter Ian Kennedy with a sacrifice fly and a single. David Hernandez (2-0) got the win with a scoreless 11th.
