Game Recap

DENVER (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks crashed yet another Rockies celebration, spoiling the unveiling of Colorado's NL championship banner Saturday night.


Chris Young hit two homers and Brandon Webb allowed five hits over seven innings, lifting the Diamondbacks to a 7-2 win over the Rockies.

Colorado showed video highlights of its run to the NL championship before the game, and then unfurled their banner just above the left-field scoreboard.

But Young quickly put a damper on the festivities, hitting his 10th career leadoff homer. He also smashed a two-run homer in the sixth inning, for the sixth multi-homer game of his career.

The Rockies reveled in their NL championship in Friday's home opener with pregame ceremonies that included fly-overs and fireworks. They also brought out the NL trophy, which was won at Arizona's expense as Colorado swept the Diamondbacks in the NLCS.

Arizona then went out and spoiled the mood with an 8-1 win, limiting Colorado to two hits.

The Diamondbacks continued their party crashing ways on Saturday, pounding out 15 hits.

Webb (2-0) stymied Colorado, giving up just one earned run. He walked one and struck out five in a very efficient 98-pitch outing.

It was his second straight solid performance as he gave up two runs in six innings during a season-opening win against Cincinnati on March 31.

So much for his troubles in spring training, where Webb allowed 17 earned runs in 18 innings spanning five spring starts.

Conor Jackson returned to the lineup after missing two games with an upper respiratory infection and had three hits, including an RBI double in the fifth.

Justin Upton had a solo homer in the second inning, his third of the season, and two singles.

The Rockies, who finished off the regular season last year by winning 14 of their final 15 games, have now dropped four in a row. Colorado is last in the majors with eight runs.

Jeff Francis (0-1) didn't make the most of his mulligan, giving up five runs and 12 hits in 6 1/3 innings. The southpaw had his rough Opening-Day outing wiped away by a rainout against St. Louis.

Todd Helton homered for the second straight game, a solo shot in the first. He also had a double and has now hit safely in all five games.

After going hitless with four strikeouts on Friday, Matt Holliday stayed late to take extra cuts in the cage, and then arrived early Saturday to take even more swings.

Holliday, the reigning NL batting champ, had better contact, lining a double to left in the third to break a 1-for-15 slump. He also had a single in the eighth. He also had two base hits taken away thanks to nifty plays by Webb and Mark Reynolds.

 

Game Notes

Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin said before the game that he isn't in a hurry to rush Randy Johnson back to the team.

The 44-year-old lefty is trying to come back from his second back surgery in less than a year. Johnson, who's currently on the disabled list, is scheduled to make another start Tuesday in Tucson, Ariz.
