PHOENIX (AP) - David Peralta had two extra-base hits and stole home, Miguel Montero hit a three-run homer and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the listless Colorado Rockies 5-3 on Friday night.
Montero homered off Tyler Matzek (2-7) in the first inning and not much else happened between the NL West's two worst teams until Peralta flashed his speed in the seventh.
The rookie hit a run-scoring triple off Rex Brothers then caught the Rockies off-guard, racing home when catcher Michael McKenry lobbed the ball back to the mound. Peralta is the sixth Arizona player to steal home, first since Chris Young in 2007.
Chase Anderson (7-4) pitched five solid innings, giving up a leadoff homer to McKenry in the fifth inning and little else.
Corey Dickerson and DJ LeMahieu had run-scoring singles in the ninth inning for the Rockies, who have lost 10 of 12.
