DENVER (AP) -- Matt Lindstrom's wild pitch with one out in the top of the 11th inning allowed Gerardo Parra to score from third base, sending the Arizona Diamondbacks to a wild 7-6 win over the Colorado Rockies in their season opener Friday.

Parra singled off Matt Reynolds to start the 11th, and Lindstrom came in and struck out a pinch hitter before Willie Bloomquist singled to right, putting runners at the corners for Kelly Johnson, who was at the plate when Lindstrom threw the wild pitch.

Right-hander Sam Demel (1-0), the fifth Diamondbacks pitcher, worked one scoreless inning for the win, and righty J.J. Putz got the last three outs for his first save. Reynolds (0-1), who retired one of two batters he faced, took the loss.
