DENVER (AP) - Kelly Johnson homered to lead off the 10th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks, after blowing a six-run lead and then falling behind by five, rallied past the Colorado Rockies 12-11 Wednesday.
Johnson sent a drive from Franklin Morales (0-2) over the center-field wall. His eighth homer of the season capped a seesaw game that saw abbreviated outings by both starters, a dozen extra-base hits and the ejection of Arizona manager A.J. Hinch.
Bob Howry (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings and Juan Gutierrez got three outs for his first save in two chances.
