Diamondbacks Vs. Rockies Final Score: Arizona's Trevor Cahill Dominates Colorado For 5-2 Victory

The Colorado Rockies were unable to complete a sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon, losing by a three-run margin, 5-2. Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill, in his first season with the team, had no problems with a Rockies' lineup that consisted of five bench players starting the game. Cahill allowed one run (scored after he left the game) on four hits in 7.1 innings. He struck out six.

Jonathan Herrera started the game at second base in place of Marco Scutaro and was the one Rockies hitter able to consistently hit Arizona pitching. He went 3-for-4 and scored one run. He had half of the team's six hits, all of which went for singles.

Arizona's Chris Young drove in the first three runs for the Diamondbacks, two on a first-inning home run and one on a single in the third. Aaron Hill drove in two on a single in the fifth and also had an amazing catch during the bottom half of the inning. He turned an apparent bloop single by Chris Nelson into an over-the-shoulder catch and then was able to take advantage of Wilin Rosario's baserunning mistake to double him off first base.

Drew Pomeranz, making his first start of the season, faltered badly. He used 100 pitches through 4.1 innings and allowed all five runs on nine hits and two walks. Josh Roenicke, Matt Reynolds and Rafael Betancourt held the Snakes to one hit and one walk over the remaining 4.2 innings. Roenicke struck out five while allowing the two baserunners.

The Rockies (4-5, 3-3 home) remain at Coors Field for a series against the San Diego Padres that begins on Monday.
