Fowler, Chacin lead Rockies over Diamondbacks 1-0

PHOENIX (AP) - Dexter Fowler hit a run-scoring single in the eighth inning and Jhoulys Chacin pitched 7 2-3 strong innings to lead the Colorado Rockies to a 1-0 win over the Arizona
Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Fowler also helped Chacin with a diving catch in center field that took away a hit from Adam LaRoche in the fourth inning. Fowler landed hard on his left side but held onto the ball. He was shaken up for a few moments but remained in the game.

Eric Young singled with one out in the eighth off Arizona reliever Aaron Heilman (4-5) and stole second base before Fowler's hit.

Chacin (6-9) allowed three hits and a walk with nine strikeouts. It was the longest outing of the 22-year-old rookie's major league career.

Daniel Hudson went seven innings for Arizona, allowing four hits and striking out nine.
