PHOENIX (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez threw seven sparkling innings, Troy Tulowitzki homered for the second straight game and the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0 on Tuesday night.

Jimenez gave up four hits, struck out eight and walked three in his first career victory over Arizona. He was 0-1 in four previous starts against the Diamondbacks despite a 2.77 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 26 innings.

Manuel Corpas worked the eighth and Huston Street finished the five-hitter for his first save with the Rockies. Street was acquired in the offseason trade that sent Matt Holliday to the Oakland Athletics.

Dan Haren was almost as good as Jimenez, allowing one run and three hits over seven innings for Arizona. He struck out nine and walked none.
