PHOENIX (AP) -- Miguel Montero and Justin Upton each homered and drove in three runs, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 9-4 Tuesday night to tie a team record with their 11th straight home win.

The NL West-leading Diamondbacks have won eight straight overall, their longest streak since 2008, and the home streak matches the mark set in 2000 and 2003.

Gerardo Parra had a two-run triple off Rockies starter Aaron Cook (3-8), four of Arizona's 14 hits and scored three runs. Upton matched a career high with his 26th homer, a two-run shot, and Wade Miley (2-1) pitched six effective innings in his third career start.

Dexter Fowler homered and Colorado had 13 hits, but the Rockies stranded nine runners.
