TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The crowd rose to their feet Sunday in Denver as Rockies first baseman and former Diamondback Mark Reynolds ended the game with a walk off two-run shot on.

Arizona's road trip was a successful one, however it ended with a series split against the Rockies.

Colorado’s Carlos Gonzales cashed in a grand slam and Trevor Story along with Charlie Blackmon also hit home runs for the Rockies.

Story led off the 9th getting hit by a pitch from reliever Silvino Bracho. Bracho took care of business with the next two Colorado batters before the former Reynolds hit his eighth home run of the season to finalize the game.

This was the first walk-off victory for Colorado since September 26th, 2015.

Paul Goldschmidt’s two hits and four RBI’s were not enough for Arizona at the end of the day.

The road trip worked in the Diamondbacks favor as they went seven-and-three, proving that they are one of the better teams in the MLB playing in away from Chase Field.

Unfortunately the D-backs left Arizona 12 and a half games behind the front-running San Francisco Giants and are now returning 13 and a half games back in the National League West.

The Snakes begin a nine-game homestand Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies.
