DENVER (AP) - Matt Reynolds was a busy member of the Colorado Rockies bullpen for three seasons until they traded him to the Arizona Diamondbacks in November.

He pitched one scoreless inning when the Diamondbacks were at Coors Field for a three-game series in April, but was far less fortunate Tuesday night when the Rockies beat the Diamondbacks 5-4 in 10 innings.

Reynolds took the mound in the 10th and gave up a one-out double to Carlos Gonzalez. After intentionally walking Troy Tulowitzki, Reynolds gave up a single to Wilin Rosario that won the game.

Both hits by Gonzalez and Rosario came on sliders, Gonzalez with the count 2-1 and Rosario on the first pitch.

``I fell behind him,' Reynolds said of Gonzalez, ``but more than that, I had a game plan, didn't execute it. Kind of the thing on him is he'll hit breaking balls if they're in the zone. It was way too much zone, way too much up. He just turned on it.'

Reynolds (0-2) made 165 appearances for the Rockies in the past three seasons. He often threw to Rosario last year and was well aware of his reputation as a fastball hitter.

``That's kind of the Catch-22,' Reynolds said. ``If you throw him a first-pitch fastball he can hammer it. He's a good fastball hitter, so you take your chances with an off-speed pitch, trying to get ahead of him.

``The one to CarGo I feel shouldn't happen, it was a really poor pitch. The one to Rosario, I mean, it wasn't a great pitch either, but sometimes that happens in the course of a game.'

The Rockies had squandered a four-run lead in the seventh.

Tulowitzki hit a solo homer and had a double to raise his average to .406 at Coors Field this season.

The Rockies brought closer Rafael Betancourt to start the 10th, but he was in some discomfort after throwing a second straight pitch into the dirt. After a few warm-up tosses, Betancourt left with a tight right groin and Wilton Lopez was brought in.

Lopez (1-1) threw a perfect inning to earn the win.

Jhoulys Chacin took a 4-0 lead and a one-hitter into the seventh, only to walk away with a no-decision after things unraveled as the Diamondbacks rallied to tie the game.

Unable to manage much early against the hard-throwing righty, Arizona loaded the bases with one out on two walks and an error. Jason Kubel hit a two-run double and Martin Prado followed with a two-run single that tied it at 4.

That was all for Chacin as reliever Josh Outman was summoned to quell the rally. He gave up a single and walked another to load the bases before striking out Gerardo Parra looking on a borderline pitch for the second out.

Parra threw his hands up in exasperation over the call from home plate umpire Adrian Johnson. Manager Kirk Gibson ran out of the dugout to guide his leadoff hitter away from the plate. Outman then struck out Didi Gregorius on a called third strike to end the threat. Gregorius also voiced his displeasure.

Chacin was in a groove the last time he faced the Diamondbacks on April 19, throwing 6 1-3 scoreless innings before leaving because of tightness in his back. The injury landed him on the 15-day disabled list.

He's struggled since his return on May 5, going 0-3 with a 7.79 ERA heading into Tuesday.

In this game though, Chacin looked more like the ace of the staff. He gave up a double to Ian Kennedy in the third and didn't allow another until the seventh. He gave up four runs - three earned - in 6 1-3 innings.

Kennedy came into the game with a 3.41 ERA at Coors Field, the second-best mark among active starters (with a minimum of 30 innings). And although he struggled early, Kennedy settled down enough to limit the damage. He lasted six innings and gave up four runs - three earned - in the no-decision.

Tulowitzki hit his ninth homer of the season in the third, sending an 89-mph fastball from Kennedy into the left-field bleachers. Before the All-Star shortstop's shot, Arizona pitchers hadn't allowed a homer in seven games.

Colorado jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second on back-to-back RBI singles from Nolan Arenado and D.J. LeMahieu. Both players began the season at Triple-A Colorado Springs before being called up.

Rockies lefty Jorge De La Rosa will start Wednesday almost two years to the day when he tore a ligament in his elbow pitching against the Diamondbacks at Coors Field. He later underwent Tommy John surgery.

``It was a long rehab,' said De La Rosa, who is 5-3 with a 3.58 ERA this season. ``I'm glad I'm ready to go. I think I'm helping the team a little bit.'

Notes: Arizona LHP Patrick Corbin received plenty of congratulatory texts and messages after his first career complete game on Monday. ``It's cool to hear from everyone,' he said. ... 2B Aaron Hill (broken left hand) is slated to visit the doctor again next week. ... Rockies LHP Jeff Francis (groin) threw 25 pitches off the mound Tuesday. ... Rockies RF Michael Cuddyer (inflammed cervical disk) played in an extended spring training game in Scottsdale, Ariz. Cuddyer could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.
