MLB: Arizona 6, Colorado 1

July 7, 2013 at 7:08 PM   |   Comments

PHOENIX, July 7 (UPI) -- Patrick Corbin improved to 10-1 with a dominating eight-inning performance Sunday, staking Arizona to series-sweeping 6-1 win over Colorado.

Corbin, named Saturday to his first MLB All-Star Game squad, handcuffed the Rockies, who managed just one run. The left-hander allowed three hits and a walk while striking out 10.

The hurler also delivered a run-scoring double as the National League West-leading Diamondbacks completed a three-game sweep of Colorado and notched a fifth straight win overall.

Aaron Hill provided a two-run double while Paul Goldschmidt and Eric Chavez each chipped in an RBI for the winners.

Rockies starter Roy Oswalt (0-4) was the loser, despite giving up only one run on two hits before leaving the game with a strained left hamstring in the second inning.

Jonathan Herrera homered for Colorado.
