(Col.)-Six run first inning lifts Rockies over Phillies
DENVER (AP) — Tyler Chatwood pitched five effective innings in his return from a triceps injury, Tyler Colvin homered during Colorado's six-run first, and the Rockies snapped a three-game losing streak with a 10-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.
The Rockies also relied on solid defense to end a six-game skid against the Phillies, turning three double plays and getting a gem from third baseman Nolan Arenado, who snared Jonathan Pettibone's sharply hit grounder in the second with a diving stop and made a one-hop throw from his backside to get the Phillies pitcher.
Wilin Rosario had three hits, all for extra bases, Arenado was 3 for 4 with two RBIs, and Chatwood pitched in with two hits, including an RBI single.
Chatwood (4-1) boosted his average to .437 (7 for 16) with 5 RBIs in his first game since June 3, when he left after four innings at Cincinnati because of right triceps soreness.
