PHOENIX, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Aaron Hill belted a game-winning, three-run homer in the ninth inning Tuesday, rallying the Arizona Diamondback to a 5-3 victory over Colorado.

The Rockies had grabbed a 3-2 lead in the eighth on Jordan Pacheco's two-run double against David Hernandez.

But the D-backs came back in their final at-bat against Colorado closer Rafael Betancourt (1-4).

John McDonald delivered a one-out single and, after pinch-hitter Mike Jacobs flew out, pinch-runner Tyler Graham advanced to third on Gerardo Parra's single to left.

That brought up Hill, who pounded a pitch into the left-field bleachers for a walk-off, three-run shot.

Brad Ziegler (6-1) was credited with the win for Arizona, which evened its three-game season-ending series.
