Haren strikes out 10 as Diamondbacks beat RockiesPosted: Updated:
DENVER (AP) -- Dan Haren struck out a season-high 10, Adam LaRoche homered and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 5-3 on Monday night.
Carlos Gonzalez homered and drove in both runs for the Rockies, who nearly rallied in the ninth off closer Chad Qualls. With two outs Ian Stewart drove in Todd Helton from second, but Qualls struck out pinch-hitter Jason Giambi with two on for his fifth save in seven chances.
Rockies starter Jason Hammel left the game after three innings with a strained right groin. It's the second straight day a Colorado starter left a game because of injury. Jorge De La Rosa was pulled after five innings Sunday with a bone bruise to his left middle finger.
