He worked 2 2/3 innings, allowing four runs (two earned) on six hits, while walking two and whiffing four. He threw 59 pitches, 39 strikes.

The Rockies and D-backs will move to the Phoenix area next year. Right-hander Todd Wellemeyer is slated to start against Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa.
