Talk about a run rally

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) - Miguel Montero drove in a career-high six runs, Paul Goldschmidt hit a go-ahead, three-run double in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the Colorado Rockies to their sixth straight loss, 16-8 Wednesday night.
    
The Rockies led 8-5 before the Diamondbacks scored six times in the eighth to reclaim the lead. They were hardly done, adding five more in the ninth to turn a close game into a runaway win. The Diamondbacks tied a season high with 21 hits.
    
The top five hitters in the lineup each had three hits and combined for 14 RBIs. Montero drove in two runs on sacrifice flies, had a run-scoring single and hit a three-run homer in the ninth.
    
Brad Ziegler (2-1) got two outs in the seventh to earn the win. Rex Brothers (2-4) took the loss after the big eighth.
