TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Drew Pomeranz made a solid case for a spot in Colorado's rotation while Garrett Richards might have wasted a chance to impress the Angels Monday as the Rockies beat Los Angeles 6-2.
Pomeranz allowed four hits and a run over four innings in his fourth spring training start. Pomeranz, acquired in the deal that sent Ubaldo Jimenez to Cleveland, has a 0.82 ERA but he's been limited because of a tight glute. He last pitched on March 21 in a minor league game.
Richards came in with a 2.00 ERA in three starts but he gave up six runs - four earned - and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. He struck out five and walked three.
Carlos Gonzalez hit a two-run double for the Rockies.
