PHOENIX (AP) -- Justin Upton went 4 for 4 with two doubles, a triple and three RBIs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks took two of three from Colorado with a 7-0 victory on Sunday in what might have been Ubaldo Jimenez's last start for the Rockies.

Upton, who reached base five times, has nine RBIs in his last two games.

The Diamondbacks, finishing a 6-4 home stand, scored five times on eight hits in five innings against Jimenez (6-9), reportedly available for the right offer before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

Micah Owings (4-0), in a spot start as the Diamondbacks search for a reliable fifth starter, blanked the Rockies on two hits through five innings, striking out two and walking three.

He also had an RBI single.
