Denver, CO (Sports Network) – Matt Davidson clubbed a three run homer to lead
the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 7-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.

Paul Goldschmidt, Martin Prado and Chris Owings drove in one run apiece for
the Diamondbacks, who had dropped three of four entering the contest.

Trevor Cahill (8-10) picked up the win after giving up two runs — one earned
— on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings. Cahill fanned five and walked just one.

Jonathan Herrera and Jordan Pacheco drove in one run apiece for the Rockies.

Collin McHugh (0-3) allowed six runs on 11 hits over five innings to absorb
the loss.

Arizona scored one run in both the first and second innings before pushing
four runs across in the third to open up an early 6-0 lead.

In the first, Willie Bloomquist singled then scored on Prado’s double to left
field. Gerardo Parra opened the second with a double then scored on Tuffy
Gosewisch’s base hit to right.

With runners on first and second and one out, Davidson smacked a three-run
shot to center field. Parra followed with a double before coming around on
Chris Owing’s two-bagger to center.

Pacheco singled home Todd Helton in the fourth to get the Rockies on the
board.

Herrera’s RBI single in the sixth pulled the Rockies within 6-2, but
Goldschmidt singled home Adam Eaton in the ninth to make it a five-run game.
