Rockies defeat Holliday, Athletics 14-7

By  | 

Oakland outfielder Matt Holliday enjoyed facing his former team for the first time on Tuesday.

Holliday, the 2007 National League batting champion, had two singles but the Rockies earned a 14-7 victory.

"These guys are going to be my friends until I die, no matter where I play, what team they're on or what team I'm on," Holliday said. "They're my friends and it's good to see them, no matter what the circumstances."

Holliday, who established himself as one of the premier power hitters in the majors during his five-year stint with the Rockies, was traded for closer Huston Street, pitcher Greg Smith and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez in the offseason.
