Colorado's Ongoing October Odyssey
Centre fielder Willy Taveras makes a diving catch in deep right centre in the seventh inning, robbing Tony Clark of an extra base hit, a run batted in and stuffing out a DiamondBacks rally in a 2-1 game.
Here's the play from ESPN SportsCenter (the only way MLB will allow us to see their content with out a subscription, and the only way I can re-publish it here for you).
DiamondBacks tie the game in the bottom of the 9th but then walk home the winning run in the top of the 11th. Colorado's bullpen then closes the deal with a 1, 2, 3 bottom of the inning. Final score Colorado Rockies 3, Arizona DiamondBacks 2
Rockies go up 2-0 in the National League Championship Series, their 8th win in a row and the 19th of their last 20 games.
