Chacin throws well as Rockies bounce back in Phoenix

PHOENIX (AP) - Jhoulys Chacin pitched seven effective innings, Chris Iannetta hit a two-run homer and the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 on Wednesday night.

Chacin (4-2) yielded solo homers by pitcher Barry Enright and Kelly Johnson, but only one other hit. The 23-year-old right-hander, who had lost his last two starts, struck out six and walked four.

The Rockies jumped on Enright (1-3) for three runs in the fourth inning and three more in the fifth. Todd Helton doubled in two runs and Seth Smith had an RBI single. Ian Stewart, recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday when Ty Wigginton went on the 15-day disabled list, had a run-scoring double.

Huston Street allowed an RBI single but got the final two outs for his 11th save in 11 tries.
