Phils edge Rox in pitchers duel

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Cole Hamels threw eight impressive innings, Jimmy Rollins drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 2-1 Wednesday night to snap a four-game losing streak.

Hamels (5-2) allowed one run and five hits, striking out eight for his first career win against the Rockies. He entered 0-3 with an 8.22 ERA in three career starts against Colorado, including two in the postseason.

The NL East-leading Phillies had just seven runs and 17 hits in the previous four games. They got just enough this time.

Jorge De La Rosa (5-2) was the hard-luck loser. The lefty allowed two runs - one earned - and five hits to record his first career complete game.
