Jorge De La Rosa threw six solid innings, Chris Iannetta and Clint Barmes homered and the Colorado Rockies hurt the Arizona Diamondbacks' hopes for the NL West title with a 3-2 win last night.

The loss ended the Diamondbacks' four-game win streak and put a dent in their chances of catching the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. Arizona is 3 1/2 games behind Los Angeles.

Three weeks ago the Diamondbacks had a 4 1/2-game lead in the division, but lost 11 of 14 before sweeping the Giants at home earlier this week.

Garrett Atkins had three hits for the Rockies. Adam Dunn homered and had two hits, and Mark Reynolds homered for Arizona.

Both teams are back at Coors Field Saturday night.
