Anderson lifts D-Backs to 6-2 win over Rockies

Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) Chase Anderson has never pitched deep into September, this being his first year in the major leagues. The Arizona right-hander will get his chance now after ending August on a winning note and looking strong.

Anderson held the Colorado Rockies to a run and five hits over six innings on Sunday, helping the Diamondbacks defeat the Colorado Rockies 6-2.

''Arm felt really good from the get-go,'' said Anderson, who made his last start a full week before. ''It felt like college days, six days of rest. It was good to have a little more life on the fastball.''

Nolan Reimold's first career pinch-hit homer in the seventh was the decisive hit. His two-run shot highlighted a four-run inning that broke the game open.

Anderson (8-6) held the Rockies without a hit until Charlie Blackmon led off the fourth with a home run. Anderson struck out eight, tying a career high, and is 3-0 in three starts against Colorado in his career.

Aaron Hill tripled, doubled and singled, scoring twice with two runs batted in. Ender Inciarte had two hits, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Diamondbacks' win.

Hill's first-inning single knocked in Inciarte after he'd walked, stole second base and took third on a wild pitch. Jordan Pacheco singled in Hill in the third inning after Hill's two-out triple.

After Reimold's home run, Hill doubled in Inciarte and Mark Trumbo added an RBI single.

''You go up there every day and you do your work and you hope for the best,'' Hill said. ''I just feel good going into the last month.''

Jorge De La Rosa took the loss, the Rockies' fifth in six games. De La Rosa (13-10) allowed four runs on seven hits through six-plus innings, but was chased after Reimold's home run.

''We were hoping to get through the first three hitters in the seventh but the first two guys in the inning ended up scoring,'' Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. ''At that point I had to go get (De La Rosa). He did what he almost always does, he puts us in a position to win games.''


Weiss had yet to name the first pitcher who will take the mound in the resumption of a suspended game against the San Francisco Giants Monday in Denver. The original game was played May 22 and suspended due to rain in the bottom the sixth with two outs and a runner on first base and the score tied at 2.

The suspended game will be followed by the regularly-scheduled contest against the Giants.

''We've got to play essentially a game and a half, so it's going to affect the bullpen a little bit,'' Weiss said. ''But hopefully we can get through that game not going to deep into the pen.''


With the rosters expanding on Monday, the Diamondbacks plan to go with a sixth pitcher in the starting rotation at some point in September. ''We're getting there,'' Gibson said, ''but we don't know who's going to be here.''

The club is waiting to see if Triple-A Reno makes the postseason before deciding on whom to bring up.

Position players Chris Owings (SS) and A.J. Pollock (OF) could also be activated from the disabled list in the coming days.


Rockies: LHP Franklin Morales (5-7) starts the regularly scheduled game against the San Francisco Giants Monday in Denver. Morales hasn't earned a win since July 8 and has had eight starts since. He's 1-3 with a 5.21 earned run average against the Giants in 21 games (six starts).

Diamondbacks: RHP Trevor Cahill (3-9) faces the San Diego Padres Monday with a 2-3 mark and 2.33 ERA against them in his career. Cahill is 2-2 with a 3.43 ERA in seven games (five starts) since being recalled from Triple-A Reno on July 14.


Rockies: OF Michael Cuddyer (hamstring), C Wilin Rosario (wrist) and LHP Boone Logan are on the 15-day disabled list and not eligible to come off for at least a week.

Diamondbacks: OF Cody Ross will be activated when rosters expand. Ross has been on the disabled list since July 22 with a calf injury. Gibson said he will be available for pinch-hitting. RHP Daniel Hudson has been pitching one-inning relief stints in the minors but will be activated and could make his first major-league appearance of the season this week. He's coming off a second Tommy John surgery.
