Recap: Colorado vs. Arizona

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Rafael Ynoa drove in three runs as the Colorado Rockies completed a four-game sweep over the Arizona Diamondbacks with an 8-3 victory on Sunday.

Brandon Barnes and Ynoa both hit two-run doubles, Wilin Rosario scored three times and Michael Cuddyer homered in his third straight game for Colorado, which won its sixth consecutive game and swept Arizona for the first time in a four-game series.

Christian Bergman (3-4) allowed two runs on six hits with no walks and three strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in the win.

"I had everything working," Bergman said.

Mark Trumbo homered twice and Wade Miley (8-12) was tagged for six runs, eight hits and four walks across 4 1/3 frames for the Diamondbacks, who lost their sixth straight game.

"Didn't have very good command at all," Miley said.

DJ LeMahieu started the scoring for the Rockies in the second with a two-out base hit to right that brought in Drew Stubbs.

Josh Rutledge walked, Rosario singled and Stubbs was issued a free pass to load the bases with two outs in the sixth. Barnes drove in two with a double to right for a 3-0 lead.

Colorado doubled its advantage in the fifth. Rutledge led off with a double to left and moved to third on Cuddyer's groundout. Rosario walked before Stubbs hit an RBI single to center. Barnes' base hit ended Miley's outing. Ynoa greeted Randall Delgado with a two-run double to right for a 6-0 advantage.

Trumbo got the Diamondbacks on the board with a two-run blast to left in the top of the sixth.

The Rockies went up 8-2 in the seventh after Cuddyer led off with a solo shot to right-center field and Ynoa's RBI single brought in Rosario, who doubled earlier in the frame.
