DENVER (AP) - Cole Hamels hardly looked like a World Series MVP in his 2009 debut.

After his start was pushed back because of spring training elbow trouble, Hamels was roughed up and chased early by the Rockies on Friday in Colorado's 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Jason Marquis pitched seven strong innings in his Rockies debut, and Colorado beat the defending World Series champions in its home opener.

Hamels (0-1) was supposed to start Philadelphia's season opener sunday night, but his outing was delayed due to a sore left elbow that slowed him this spring. The left-hander allowed seven earned runs and 11 hits in 3 2-3 innings, including a five-run third in which he gave up half a dozen extra-base hits.
