DENVER (AP) - Aaron Cook overcame his early-season struggles to throw a five-hitter, Miguel Olivo hit his 100th career homer and the Colorado Rockies beat the Florida Marlins 8-1 Saturday night to gain a doubleheader split.
In the opener, Ricky Nolasco limited the Rockies to one run in eight innings and Dan Uggla and Brett Carroll each homered in Florida's 4-1 victory.
Showcasing the effective sinker that had eluded him in his three previous outings, Cook (1-2) struck out four and walked two in his 32nd career win at Coors Field - the most by any pitcher at the ballpark.
It was the 10th career complete game for Cook, who also singled twice and scored two runs.
