PHOENIX -- It didn't matter where the D-backs' defenders played against Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu. They weren't where he hit the ball during Monday night's 5-4 victory over the D-backs at Chase Field.
The right-handed-hitting LeMahieu knocked an RBI single to right field, which is his tendency, in the third inning. In the sixth, he pulled his second hit off starter Zack Greinke and forced D-backs left fielder David Peralta -- shifted toward the middle -- into a middle-distance sprint to hold it to two bases. In the eighth, he tripled off Jake Barrett to right-center.
