PHOENIX (AP) -Angry fans threw water bottles and other debris onto the field following a disputed call, prompting Colorado manager Clint Hurdle to pull his team back to the dugout during Thursday night's NL championship series opener.
The game was delayed for about eight minutes in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Colorado was ahead 5-1 when the Arizona Diamondbacks put two runners on base with no outs. Augie Ojeda hit a grounder to third baseman Garrett Atkins, who threw to second baseman Kaz Matsui.
Justin Upton, running from first, slid over second base and then rolled his right shoulder into Matsui's left leg, knocking the infielder to the grounder. Second base umpire Larry Vanover immediately called Upton out for interference, resulting in a double play.
A few fans threw bottles onto the field from the upper deck, and then more followed far down the foul lines. Some of them landed near Rockies players, and Hurdle gestured in pulling his team off the field.
