Game Recap

DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado Rockies celebrated their NL championship Friday with a pregame jubilee filled with fireworks, fly-bys and flashbacks, then played nothing like the charmed team that won its first pennant six months ago.

Arizona right-hander Micah Owings (1-0) struck out a career-best nine batters and allowed just one run and two hits over 6 2/3 splendid innings in the Diamondbacks' 8-1 win over struggling Colorado.

Chad Qualls and Juan Cruz completed the two-hitter, and Mark Reynolds homered, doubled and drove in three runs for the Diamondbacks, who watched the Rockies celebrate a sweep of the NL championship series the last time they were in town.

Gone on this day, however, were the clutch hits, the great glove work, the sweet sounds of the barrel meeting the ball for the Rockies at sold-out but oh-so-quiet Coors Field, where a record regular season paid crowd of 49,233 watched the D-Backs domination.

After Willy Taveras doubled leading off the first, Owings retired 17 straight batters before walking Taveras with two outs in the sixth.

Unlike their remarkable run to the World Series, when Colorado seemingly could do no wrong, very little has gone right in 2008 for the Rockies, who have lost three of their first four games while scoring a total of just six runs.

Matt Holliday went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts. After winning the NL batting title last year, Holliday is mired in a 1-for-14 slump in 2008. Troy Tulowitzki, who led major league shortstops in fielding percentage, bobbled two groundballs, one of which resulted in an error, the other nearly costing Colorado a run.

Left-hander Mark Redman (0-1), who had so many clutch performances for Colorado in September -- the Rockies went 5-0 with him on the mound -- allowed five runs, four of them earned, and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings.

Redman labored through a 35-pitch first inning in which he surrendered an RBI single to Chris Snyder and a two-run double to Reynolds, dropping the Rockies into a 3-0 hole.

In the second, Taveras saved Redman from another bad inning by making a Willie Mays-type catch of Orlando Hudson's drive over his head in center field with runners at first and second.

Hudson, however, would later drive in two runs with a single in the sixth and a double in the eighth as the D-Backs scored single runs in each of the last five innings.

Todd Helton homered leading off the seventh for Colorado's second hit off Owings, who was replaced by Qualls after issuing his second walk two outs later.

Cruz pitched the ninth.

Pregame ceremonies included video clips of the Rockies' remarkable 21-1 to the World Series last year, including their sweep of the Diamondbacks in the NLCS, capped when Helton scooped the final out and thrust his arms to the heavens in triumph.

"It could've been cloudy today and I think I would've seen it as a bright drive in," Colorado manager Clint Hurdle said before the game.

 

Game Notes

Randy Johnson, who had a terrible showing in his rehab start for Tucson on Thursday, is slated to make one more rehab start, on Tuesday. The 44-year-old Diamondbacks ace is trying to come back from his second back surgery in less than a year. ... D-Backs OF Conor Jackson missed his second game with an upper respiratory infection. ... It was the second straight day an opposing pitcher set a new career high for strikeouts. On Thursday, Brad Thompson of the Cardinals struck out six Rockies.
