    Rockies' four homers enough to edge D-Backs

    DENVER (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks' 12-game winning streak ended Tuesday night, with Ronnie Belliard hitting a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning that sent the Colorado Rockies to a 7-4 victory.

    The Rockies hit four homers in breaking Arizona's team-record winning string. It was the best streak in the majors since the Oakland A's won 20 in a row last Aug. 13-Sept. 4.

    Preston Wilson hit a two-run homer and Larry Walker and Jay Payton added solo shots for Colorado, which erased a 4-0 deficit.

    Belliard's solo homer put the Rockies ahead 5-4. In the eighth, Belliard had a bunt single that drove in another run.

    Javier Lopez (2-0) pitched 1 1-3 innings to earn the win.

    The Rockies used three pitchers in the ninth. Brian Fuentes struck out Luis Gonzalez -- who homered twice and had five RBI on Monday night -- with two on and one out.

    Justin Speier then struck out pinch-hitter Robby Hammock to end it, getting his second save.

    Andrew Good (3-2) went 6 1-3 innings, allowing nine hits and five runs, including all four Colorado homers.

    Steve Finley's two-run homer helped the Diamondbacks jump out to their early lead. He finished with four hits.

    Colorado's Denny Stark, making his season debut after being sidelined three months with a torn muscle in his pitching shoulder, went 4 2-3 innings. He gave up seven hits and four runs and left with a 4-1 deficit.

    Walker led off the Rockies' fourth with a homer, his ninth, just inside the right-field foul pole.

    Arizona chased Stark in the fifth, despite failing to score. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases with two outs, but reliever Nelson Cruz struck out Shea Hillenbrand.

    Wilson's two-run shot in the fifth cut the lead to 4-3. With two outs, Todd Helton doubled off the left-field wall and Wilson followed with a 437-foot homer to center, his 18th.

    Payton's leadoff homer in the sixth made it 4-all.

    Belliard homered with one out, chasing Good. It was Belliard's second homer of the season and first since April 29. Payton added an RBI single.

    Matt Kata led off the game with a single -- his fifth straight hit -- and Finley followed with his 11th homer.

    Lyle Overbay doubled in the Arizona second and scored on Chad Moeller's single.

    Arizona loaded the bases with no outs in the third on two singles and a walk, and a run scored on David Dellucci's double-play grounder.
