PHOENIX, April 28 (UPI) --
Patrick Corbin held Colorado to two runs over 6 2/3 innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks took advantage of Rockies mistakes in a 4-2 victory Sunday.
Corbin (3-0) logged a fifth straight quality start to begin the season despite surrendering nine hits. The left-hander didn't issue and walk and struck out five.
J.J. Putz yielded a hit and a walk in the ninth but held on to record his fifth save for Arizona, which won three times in its four-game home series.
The Diamondbacks grabbed a 2-0 lead in the third inning when Chris Pennington scored on a passed ball by Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario and Gerardo Parra came home on a wild pitch by Jon Garland.
Josh Wilson and Cody Ross each drove in a run for Arizona.
Garland (2-2) allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits over six innings.
Eric Young went 3-for-4 with a run scored for Colorado.
