DENVER, July 5 (UPI) -- Pinch-hitter Chris Young hit a three-run double in a six-run eighth inning for Arizona Saturday in the Diamondbacks' 11-7 win over Colorado.

Stephen Drew had three hits, including a two-run homer in the sixth. The lone hit by Mark Reynolds was a fourth-inning solo homer.

Felipe Lopez had two RBI, Chad Tracy drove in one, and Gerardo Parra added three hits and one RBI for the Diamondbacks, who overcame a 40-minute rain delay and came back from a 4-3 deficit after seven innings to end a three-game losing streak.

Reliever Scott Schoeneweis (1-0) got the win and closer Chad Qualls earned his 14th save.

Colorado's Ian Stewart, Seth Smith and Clint Barmes each had two RBI. Barmes hit a solo homer.

The losing pitcher was reliever Joel Peralta (0-2).
