GLENDALE, Ariz. -- In his first action since being named the Rockies' starter for the March 31 season opener at Miami, left-hander Jorge De La Rosa pitched five innings and gave up two runs on six hits in a game against Rockies Minor Leaguers at Salt River Fields.

De La Rosa, who pitched at the complex to allow the team to get an extended look at rotation competitor Jordan Lyles in the Cactus League game against the Dodgers, threw 72 pitches, including 47 strikes. He struck out two and walked two.

Catcher Wilin Rosario knocked two homers and drove in three runs while going 2-for-4. Justin Morneau went 4-for-8 with a double, a homer and three RBIs.
