By  | 

PHOENIX (AP) - Dexter Fowler, Yorvit Torrealba and Ian Stewart homered and the Colorado Rockies won a series against Arizona for the first time in two years with a 9-2 victory over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Franklin Morales (1-0) held the Diamondbacks to a run on four hits in six innings, striking out six and walking one. Ryan Spilborghs had a two-run double in Colorado's three-run third inning. Stewart also singled in a run.

After homering five times in their 9-8 season-opening win on Monday, the Diamondbacks scored two runs in 18 innings against the Rockies, who were 3-15 against Arizona last season.

Stephen Drew had a solo homer for the Diamondbacks in the first.
