PHOENIX - Adam Ottavino gave up the costly grand slam in Colorados 5-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. Rex Brothers took the blame. Brothers walked the three batters he faced in the eighth inning, setting the stage for rookie Jake Lambs game-winning drive to left-centre for his second career homer. "A tremendously bad performance on my part," Brothers said. "I dont have any excuse. It was ridiculous." The Rockies grabbed a 2-1 lead on Charlie Blackmons sacrifice fly in the eighth. But Brothers took the mound in the bottom of the inning and couldnt find the plate. That brought in Ottavino, who almost wiggled out of the jam. He got Mark Trumbo to bounce into a fielders choice that could have been a double play if the reliever was able to get the ball out of his glove cleanly. He also struck out Miguel Montero before Lamb came to the plate. "Being conservative I just tried to throw a strike thinking I could overpower him," Ottavino said. "He barrelled it. Bottom line, he did a great job." Lamb, called up from Triple-A Reno on Aug. 7, connected on a 97 mph fastball. "That was really cool," he said. "I missed a lot of fastballs early on in the game. It was more than frustrating. But I went up there, the guy was throwing hard, and I just wanted to have a short swing. When hes throwing that hard and you hit barrel on it, it can go far." Brad Ziegler (5-2) gave up a run in his one inning but got the victory. Addison Reed fanned two in a perfect ninth for his 31st save of the season and No. 100 for his career. Both starting pitchers were excellent. Arizonas Josh Collmenter allowed one run and two hits in 6 1-3 innings. He retired 18 in a row after Blackmon led off the game with a single. Collmenters streak ended when Drew Stubbs reached on a bunt single down the third base line with one out in the seventh. Nolan Arenado then had a two-out RBI double off Evan Marshall. Colorados Christian Bergman, making his fifth major league start, didnt allow a hit until Collmenter doubled on an 0-2 pitch with two outs in the fifth. In the sixth, David Peralta tripled to right-centre. Bergman intentionally walked Trumbo, and then was replaced by Christian Friedrich, whose wild pitch allowed Arizona to score. TRAINERS ROOM Rockies: RF Michael Cuddyer is on the DL for the third time this season, this time with a sore left hamstring. Diamondbacks: Manager Kirk Gibson says LHP Daniel Hudson (two Tommy John surgeries), INF Chris Owings (left shoulder), OF A.J.

ON DECK It will be Bob Brenly bobblehead night Saturday for the teams TV analyst and former Arizona manager. LHP Tyler Matzek (3-9) goes for Colorado, Vidal Nuno (0-3) for Arizona. BERGMAN BACK Bergman was making his second start after coming off the disabled list. In his first outing back, he allowed four runs in 6 1-3 innings and got his first major league victory as the Rockies beat Miami 7-4. TRIPLE-A DIAMONDBCKS Five of Arizonas eight starting position players began the season in the minors. OUCH A wild pitch by Brothers in his brief appearance bounced hard off catcher Michael McKenrys left shoulder. The trainer went out to check on McKenry but he stayed in the game.

The 28-year-old appeared to deliberately elbow Huth in the neck before taking another swipe at the defender as they clashed at a corner in the first half of the Premier League clash at Old Trafford.The incident was not penalised by the officials, nor seemingly spotted, and standard procedure for retrospective action for violent conduct - should a player be found guilty - is a three-match ban, which was recently handed to Tottenhams Dele Alli for a similar incident on Monday Night Football last week. Fellaini appeared to deliberately swing an elbow at Huth at a corner Alli will not play again this season after kicking out at West Broms Claudio Yacob in the 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane.Sky Sports football expert Souness, commenting on the incident at half-time on Sky Sports 1 HD, said Fellaini will be lucky to escape without a ban. Louis van Gaal says Manchester United should have been awarded a penalty when Leicesters Robert Huth pulled Marouane Fellainis hair in the box He said: This is no surprise.dddddddddddd They are both big, strong aggressive men especially in the air.There is a bit of a tangle and I tell you what, Huth is lucky as well as Fellaini. I say Huth is lucky because he has caught him under the chin. If that catches him full square across his face, then hes lost several teeth or broke his nose and I dont think he can stay on the pitch. Huth was seemingly hurt by the incident as the corner came to nothing In that respect, he is lucky, but Fellaini wont escape a ban for that. I just cant see it.Fellaini started in midfield for the 12th time in the Premier League this season as Leicester and United fought out at a 1-1 draw which kept the Foxes title celebrations on hold.
