GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.-Raimel Tapia drew a walk in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Grand Junction Rockies (COL) (39-33) a literal "walk-off" win,12-11, Wednesday night at Suplizio Field against the Ogden Raptors (LAD) (34-38). The victory completed the four-game sweep against the Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate. Tapia and 2013 2nd-round pick, Ryan McMahon, homered for Grand Junction. Carlos Estevez (5-1, 3.89 ERA) picked up the victory after throwing two perfect innings to close out the contest. The Rockies will now travel to Orem (LAA) for two games, before two more contests at Ogden (LAD) to close out the regular season. Grand Junction will begin the playoffs on Monday September 9th. Their opponent is still to be determined.
