Goldschmidt back, De La Rosa debuts as D-backs beat Rockies

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -

Paul Goldschmidt walked and struck out in his first major league action since a broken hand cut short his 2014 season, and the Arizona Diamondbacks' beat the Colorado Rockies 6-2 Wednesday.

Rockies prospect Jon Gray fanned Goldschmidt with a 97 mph fastball in the third inning. The two-time All-Star drew a walk against Rockies starter Jordan Lyles in the first.

Goldschmidt was sharp at first base a day after he singled in his only at-bat in an exhibition against Arizona State. He had been out since getting hit by a pitch on his left hand in August.

Rubby De La Rosa threw two scoreless innings in his Arizona debut on his 26th birthday, getting out of a second-inning jam when Rockies newcomer Nick Hundley flied to right.

Lyles and Gray combined to throw four scoreless innings for Colorado in its spring opener. D.J. LeMahieu went 2 for 2.
