PHOENIX, April 26 (UPI) -- Paul Goldschmidt put Arizona in front with a two-run homer in the fourth Thursday and the Diamondbacks held on to edge Colorado 3-2.

Arizona won its third in a row while the Rockies fell for the fourth time in five games. The Colorado slump followed an eight-game winning streak.

Trevor Cahill (1-3) allowed only an unearned run through five innings to get the win.

Josh Collmenter gave up a run on two hits during three relief innings and J.J. Putz survived a one-out walk in the ninth to earn his fourth save.

Wil Nieves put Arizona in front with an RBI single in the second, but Colorado tied it with a run in the fourth when Martin Prado committed a fielding error at third base on a grounder from Yorvit Torrealba.

Prado reached base on an infield single in the bottom of the fourth and scored when Goldschmidt hit an 0-2 pitch over the wall in right.

Jorge De La Rosa (2-2) gave up the homer to Goldschmidt and suffered the loss in a seven-inning effort.
