Rox best Tribe in split squad game

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa turned in his longest outing of the spring, throwing five innings and striking out six in the Colorado Rockies' 6-3 win over a Cleveland Indians split squad Wednesday.

De La Rosa only got stronger as the game went along, striking out the side in the fifth. For his increased endurance, the hard-throwing lefty credits a revamped offseason conditioning program that helped him shed 18 pounds.

Chris Iannetta powered the Colorado offense, lining a two-run triple to left-center in the sixth. Troy Tulowitzki and Melvin Mora added run-scoring singles.

Carlos Carrasco was effective for Cleveland, bolstering his chances of landing a spot in the rotation. He allowed no hits and struck out three in four innings of work.
