DENVER (AP) - Nolan Arenado bounced back from a benching with three hits, including a home run, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1 on Saturday night.
Tyler Matzek pitched three-hit ball over seven innings. Drew Stubbs and Corey Dickerson also homered for the Rockies, who have won three straight.
Ike Davis denied Colorado its first shutout at Coors Field this season with a one-out homer in the ninth.
It was a bounce-back performance for Arenado, removed from Friday's game when he didn't hustle down the line on a grounder to the pitcher in the fourth inning.
Arenado met with manager Walt Weiss before Saturday's game and said he agreed with the decision.
