ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa pitched five scoreless innings and four Rockies homered in Colorado's 10-4 win over the Seattle Mariners at Isotopes Park.
De La Rosa allowed five hits, struck out five and walked two to improve to 3-1 in the spring and drop his ERA to 1.50 in 30 innings of work, the lowest spring ERA in Rockies history (minimum 20 innings), breaking the mark of 1.64 set by Shaun Chacon in 2003.
Seattle starter Doug Fister (0-3) got the loss for Seattle, allowing three runs off six hits in four innings. Mariners infielder Tommy Everidge hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning, his second of the spring.
Colorado's Jason Giambi hit his first home run of the spring, a solo shot in the fifth inning, and infielder Brad Eldred hit his spring-leading fifth, a three-run homer in the sixth inning.
