Blanco went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and a run in Thursday's 7-0 win over the Rockies.

With David Peralta resting for the day game after a night game, Gregor Blanco took Peralta's normal spot atop the lineup and spurred the Diamondbacks' five-run first inning with a leadoff walk. Blanco went on to reach base twice more in the blowout win, but his solid showing isn't expected to earn him more at-bats, at least until the Diamondbacks' playoff position has been solidified.
