PHOENIX (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona Wildcats catcher Nick Hundley ('05) doubled down the right field line and scored the only run in the Colorado Rockies 8-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night at Chase Field.

Hundley, in his first year with the Rockies, is having a good offensive season for a team mired in last place in the National League West.

The 2005 UA product is hitting .298 and has been hovering around .300 for all of the first half.

Hundley is on pace to play 113 games in 2015 and that would be the most in his eight big league seasons.

Our David Kelly headed up to Chase Field on Thursday and caught up with Hundley to chat about his first campaign playing in Denver and if it’s just the high altitude that has sparked his offensive surge.
