Arizona buries Rockies early

PHOENIX (AP) - Justin Upton and Miguel Montero combined to drive in 11 runs and the Arizona Diamondbacks routed the Colorado Rockies 12-3 on Saturday night.

Josh Collmenter threw seven strong innings, had a pair of hits and added his first career RBI for the Diamondbacks, who have won two of their past three.

Upton finished 3 for 5 with his second career grand slam and six RBIs while Montero had three hits and drove in five.

Collmenter (6-5) allowed three runs on six hits with no walks and four strikeouts to record his second consecutive win.

Troy Tulowitzki hit his team-leading 19th home run and Ty Wigginton added a two-run single for the Rockies, who have lost two of three.

The Diamondbacks opened a 4-0 lead before Rockies starter Jason Hammel (5-10) recorded his first out.
