Jordan Hicks pitched two innings of relief, giving up a hit and striking out one. Giovanny Gallegos pitched a clean eighth inning.

Ryan Helsley’s walk-out hype video debuted Tuesday evening as he entered the ninth. He earned his 14th save of the year after giving up a hit and a walk while striking out one.

Brendan Donovan hit his third homer of the season on a fly to center in the fourth inning. Tyler O’Neill hit a sacrifice fly to left field, scoring Nolan Arenado.

Norman Gorman had an excellent game Tuesday with a fresh, Mom-approved haircut. Gorman knocked a double on a fly to right field in the fourth inning, scoring Corey Dickerson. In the seventh inning, Gorman hit his 14th homer of the season on a fly to right-center field off Steve Cishek.

It was great to see Gorman have such a great game.
