The Rockies’ bullpen went 5-2 in a 6-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Elehuris Montero made a statement and the German Marquez resembled an old Marquez.

And, oh yeah, Randall Grichuk, who is finally starting to heat up, went 3-for-4 and hit his 11th homer of the season.

But it was all in vain. Because, after all, it’s the 2022 Rockies.

The Rockies blew a three-run lead late in the game and lost 6-5 to the Diamondbacks at Chase Field on Friday night.

“That was a tough one, right?” manager Bud Black told reporters in Phoenix. “The (bullpen) guys at the end have been pretty consistent, especially the last couple of months. But it just goes to show you that not every player is invincible.

In the eighth inning, D-Backs rookie shortstop Geraldo Perdomo drove in a two-run home run off setup man Alex Colum. Jake McCarthy singled and Emmanuel Rivera doubled home Colum to set the table for Perdomo. Blake said Perdomo and Rivera’s pitches were high.

The Rockies fell to 4-12 since the All-Star break and are 17-35 away from Coors Field.

Colorado’s seemingly comfortable lead evaporated in the seventh with lefty Alex Colum on the mound.

For good reasons, Gilbreath has become one of manager Bud Black’s most reliable relievers. Since May 30, he had allowed just three runs in his last 27 appearances. That was good for a 1.33 ERA, the lowest among lefty pitchers during that span.

But Gilbreath was just bad Friday night. He issued two walks and gave up a two-run double to Josh Rojas as Arizona cut the lead to 5-4. When Gilbraith drove Alex Thomas, Blake hooked him. Of the 22 pitches Gilbraith threw, 17 were outside the strike zone.

Right-hander Robert Stephenson came around to strike out Kettlemart and bring in Christian Walker to first, preserving Colorado’s lead.

But only momentarily.

The Rockies want to see what they have in Montero, so they are playing the rookie corner infielder as often as possible. They like what they see.

Montero doubled and scored a run off veteran left-hander Madison Bumgarner in the third inning on Jose Iglesias’ double. His two-run double off Bumgarner in the sixth scored Jonathan Daza and Connor Joe to give the Rockies a 5-2 lead.

“He’s getting a little better, definitely, more comfortable,” Blake told reporters. “He’s going to keep getting more comfortable with each at-bat.”

Getting a big hit from a pitcher of Bumgarner’s stature and experience is priceless.

“It’s comforting for (Montero), it’s confidence,” Black said. “So when you go through it can only help a young player. Hopefully, he can build on that going forward. This is very early in his career. It is in its infancy, but so far, so good.
