Zito starts year 4-0 for first time in his career as Rockies lose

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Barry Zito won four straight decisions to start the season for the first time in his career, helping the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 Friday night. Zito (4-0), receiving chants of "Barry! Barry!" for the second straight outing at home, pitched eight innings and settled down after falling behind 1-0 in the first. The left-hander followed an impressive eight-inning, 10-strikeout effort against St. Louis last Saturday with another solid start, and he has yet to give up a home run in 2010. After allowing an RBI single to Carlos Gonzalez in the first, Zito retired the next 10 in order before Todd Helton drew a two-out walk in the fourth. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press.
