(Colo.)- Chatwood, Reynolds Lift Rockies To 5-2 Win Over Diamondbacks
DENVER (AP) - Tyler Chatwood pitched two-hit ball into the eighth inning before exiting after deflecting a comebacker with his pitching hand, Mark Reynolds homered for a third straight game and the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-2 on Sunday.
Pat Valaika lined a two-run homer and Charlie Blackmon added a solo shot into the second deck as the NL West-leading Rockies took two out of three from the Diamondbacks.
Chatwood (3-4) surrendered a single to Jake Lamb in the fourth and was cruising along until he tried to corral Daniel Descalso's infield hit with his right hand to start the eighth. Chatwood took a warmup toss before manager Bud Black motioned to the bullpen with the Rockies leading 5-0. Chatwood allowed one run over seven innings.
Greg Holland pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 13th save in as many chances.
Taijuan Walker (3-2) surrendered three runs - one earned - over 5 2/3 innings. He was undone by some faulty fielding, including a flyball lost in the sun.
The game was delayed late by rain for 1 hour, 22 minutes.
