De La Rosa leads Rockies to 3-1 win over D-Backs

DENVER (AP) - Lefty Jorge De La Rosa scattered three harmless singles and drove in a run before leaving in the sixth inning with a blister on his left middle finger, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-1 Saturday night.

With De La Rosa listed as day-to-day, Coloraod's top two pitchers are now dealing with injuries. Ace Ubaldo Jimenez has a cracked cuticle on this right thumb that was the culprit in his
shaky debut Friday and could force him to miss his next start.

After Kelly Johnson grounded out leading off the sixth, Rockies manager Jim Tracy and head athletic trainer Keith Dugger rushed out to the mound, took a quick look at De La Rosa and decided his night was over. He dejectedly walked off toward the dugout.
