Posted: Updated:

Denver, CO (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks opened an early seven-run lead before hanging on to beat the Colorado Rockies 13-9 on Sunday.

Matt Davidson had 4 RBI and hit a three-run homer for the second straight day.

Rookie Chris Owings doubled, scored twice and drove in two runs for the Diamondbacks, who led 7-1 in the third and 13-5 in the ninth.

Patrick Corbin had a shaky opening after giving up 10 hits and 4 runs in his 4 1/3 innings pitched.

The Rockies gave a valiant effort after scoring 4 more runs in the ninth inning, but still came up short. Colorado's Michael Cuddyer was 3 for 5, raising his league-leading average to .334. Todd Helton, who is retiring at the end of the season, had four RBIs to raise his total to 1,402.
