Anderson lifts D-Backs to 6-2 win over Rockies

PHOENIX (AP) - Chase Anderson pitched six strong innings to help the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 6-2 on Sunday.

Anderson (8-6) gave up five hits and one run while matching his career high with eight strikeouts.

Nolan Reimold's first career pinch-hit homer in the seventh was the decisive hit. His two-run shot highlighted a four-run inning that broke the game open.

Charlie Blackmon led off the fourth with a home run, the only blemish against Anderson - who is 3-0 in three starts against the Rockies in his career.

Aaron Hill tripled, doubled and singled, scoring twice with two runs batted in. Ender Inciarte had two hits, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Diamondbacks' win.

Hill's first-inning single knocked in Inciarte after he'd walked, stole second base and took third on a wild pitch. Jordan Pacheco singled in Hill in the third inning after Hill's two-out triple.
