PHOENIX -- Solid pitching -- beginning with right-hander Chase Anderson -- and just enough fundamental offense lifted the D-backs to a 3-1 victory over the Rockies at Chase Field on Wednesday night.
Anderson (7-6), coming off a career-best 10 strikeouts in his previous start, held the Rockies to one run and four hits in 5 1/3 innings, before giving way to the bullpen. Relievers Keith Hessler, Randall Delgado, David Hernandez, Matt Reynolds and Daniel Hudson (third save) combined to hold the Rockies scoreless.
