Rockies stretch winning streak to nine

DENVER (AP) - Pinch-hitter Jonathan Herrera's sacrifice fly off Mike Hampton broke a seventh-inning tie and the Colorado Rockies rallied past the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 Saturday night for their ninth straight victory.

Rookie Matt Reynolds (1-0) picked up his first major league win by working one scoreless inning and the Rockies stayed 2½ games behind San Diego in the NL West race. The Padres beat San Francisco 1-0.

Diamondbacks right-hander Rodrigo Lopez cruised along until the seventh, when he gave up three straight hits, including Miguel Olivo's RBI single that tied it at 1 and took Ubaldo Jimenez off
the hook for a hard-luck loss.

Jimenez had allowed just one run over six stellar innings.
