Rockies 7, D-Backs 5

By  | 

Aaron Cook had his sinker working in Colorado's 7-5 victory over Arizona this afternoon in Tucson.

He allowed one run in three innings. Cook gave up two hits including Chris Young's first homer of the spring and a triple by Orlando Hudson.

Batting in the leadoff spot, Young had a double and a homer for his first two hits of the spring, and he drove in two runs. Young had struck out three times in his first seven spring at-bats.

Arizona manager Bob Melvin says he's happy to see Young making solid contact.

The Diamondbacks' pitching news wasn't as positive. They scratched starter Micah Owings with a sore shoulder.

Owings was replaced by right-hander Dustin Nippert, who gave up three runs on two hits in two innings.
