Elias Diaz’s homer lifts Rockies to their 12th walk-off win of season

Was there ever any doubt? You bet.

Then again, you should never bet against LoDo Magic in 2021.

Catcher Elias Diaz blasted a two-out, three-run walk-off homer to lift the Rockies a 5-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday night at Coors Field. It was the Rockies’ major league-best 12th walk-off win of the season.

Diaz battled right-hander J.B. Wendelken for 10 pitches, including six foul balls, before he drove a slider to left field. Diaz has three walk-off hits this season, two of them home runs.

The rally began with a single by Charlie Blackmon and was extended by an infield chopper by Ryan McMahon that turned into a fortunate hit.
