Brandon Webb finally figured out the Rockies and went seven strong, giving up two runs. Conor Jackson hit a two-run shot, his 20th, and Augie Ojeda and Stephen Drew drove in runs as the D-backs clinched a postseason berth due to the Mets losing.
All good things must come to an end, and the Rockies saw their winning streak end at 11 games. With the loss, though, their Wild Card chances grew dimmer as they need to win their next two games and San Diego must also lose their two games. Starter Jeff Francis took the loss.
