Kotsay collects 3 hits in White Sox win

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Mark Kotsay went 3 for 3, Alexei Ramirez drove in two runs and the Chicago White Sox beat the Colorado Rockies 6-2 on Saturday.

The White Sox had a patchwork pitching staff after manager Ozzie Guillen decided to leave Jake Peavy in Glendale to pitch in a minor league game because he didn't want to risk an injury with the right-hander hitting against the Rockies.

Greg Aquino pitched two scoreless innings for Chicago, allowing two hits and walking one.

Colorado's Aaron Cook rebounded from earlier spring problems with six strong innings, yielding one run and six hits.
