Rockies 7, Brewers 1

By  | 

Todd Helton hit a towering home run and played seven innings in the field for a second straight game, further proof that his surgically repaired back is feeling just fine.

The Colorado first baseman finished 2-for-3 with two RBIs, leading the Rockies to a 7-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday.

It was Helton's team-leading fourth homer of the spring. Ryan Spilborghs and journeyman catcher Sal Fasano also homered for Colorado.

Ubaldo Jimenez was at his bat-breaking best as he pitched six scoreless innings for the Rockies, allowing just three hits.

Yovani Gallardo gave up six runs in five innings for Milwaukee.
