DENVER (AP) -- Ian Kennedy tossed eight crisp innings, center fielder Chris Young robbed Ty Wigginton of a game-tying homer and the surging Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Young drove in the go-ahead run with a bloop single in the sixth inning, then made his key grab in the eighth.

The Diamondbacks have won eight of their last nine to move over .500 for just the second time this season.

Kennedy (6-1) held down the Rockies all night, allowing just seven hits. The lone run he surrendered came on a sacrifice fly by Todd Helton in the fourth.
