Avila went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

Avila blasted a one-out home run in the fourth inning to put Arizona up by two in the eventual 5-4 loss. The catcher has been seeing more frequent starts of late, but he's still slashing a lowly .165/.303/.313 on the season.
