Upton homers off Jimenez, Arizona beats Rockies

PHOENIX (AP) - Justin Upton hit a go-ahead home run off Colorado ace Ubaldo Jimenez in the sixth inning that sent the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Rockies 3-1 Saturday night.

Jimenez (17-4) lost for the third time in his last six starts. The last-place Diamondbacks sent Colorado to its third loss in a row.

Upton had never gotten a hit in his career against Jimenez before doubling in the fourth and scoring on a wild pitch.

It was 1-all when Upton connected with two outs for his 17th home run.
