Daniel Descalso slugged a walk-off home run in the 13th inning on Sunday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 2-0 victory over the Rockies.
In a well-pitched and hotly-contested ballgame, the Diamondbacks finally broke through off of Jordan Lyles in the 13th inning. Brandon Drury got things started with an infield single before Descalso crushed the game-winner over the wall in right-center. He finished the afternoon 3-for-6 and is now hitting .178/.275/.333 with two long balls and eight RBI on the year.
A.J. Pollock didn't start on Sunday but went 2-for-2 with a double off the bench in an extra-inning victory over the Rockies.
Pollock nearly ended the game in the 12th inning when he crushed a ball over 420 feet to center field that went for a double. He has had an outstanding first month of the season, slashing .324/.366/.486 with two homers, eight RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Patrick Corbin pitched well in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday, allowing just two hits over 6 1/3 shutout frames.
The left-hander punched out six on the afternoon while walking a pair. As good as he was though, Germen Marquez mirrored his effort on the other side and Corbin was forced to settle for a no-decision. He has been impressive through his first six starts, compiling a 2.29 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 30/11 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings. He'll face a difficult challenge his next time out in a rematch against these Rockies at Coors Field on Friday.
Charlie Blackmon had a rough day at the plate in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks, going 0-for-6 with a pair of strikeouts.
Blackmon left six stranded in this one as the Rockies were shut out through 13 innings of play. He wasn't alone in the 0-for-6 club, as Nolan Arenado experienced a similar fate on Sunday afternoon.
