Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Robbie Ray won his regular-season debut for the Arizona Diamondbacks to help them sweep a doubleheader with the Colorado Rockies.
Ray pitched six strong innings and the Diamondbacks beat the Rockies 5-1 in Wednesday's second game.
Arizona won the opener 13-7 as the teams produced a combined 30 hits after being rained out on consecutive nights.
Ray (1-0) held the Rockies to just five hits in the second game, giving up one run and no walks while striking out five. Andrew Chafin and Addison Reed combined for three scoreless innings to seal the win.
"He really rose to the occasion," Arizona manager Chip Hale said of Ray.
Paul Goldschmidt hit a solo homer and knocked in two runs after Aaron Hill and Mark Trumbo homered in the opener. Hill had six hits in the doubleheader.
The Rockies have dropped seven in a row.
Jordan Lyles (2-3) lost to the Diamondbacks for the second time in eight days after giving up four runs, nine hits and a walk in seven innings.
"He pitched well except for the fifth (inning)," said Rockies manager Walt Weiss, who was ejected in the third. "We didn't do anything on offense. But we'll take that outing."
Goldschmidt drove a first-pitch slider over the wall in right-center field in the fourth for his seventh homer of the season.
Michael McKenry's RBI double in the bottom of the inning tied the score for the Rockies, but Arizona took a 4-1 lead with a fifth-inning rally sparked by no-out singles by Tuffy Gosewisch and Cliff Pennington.
The runners advanced on Ray's bunt and scored on David Peralta's two-out double. Peralta moved up on a wild pitch by Lyles and scored on Goldschmidt's single.
Gosewisch added an RBI bunt single in the eighth inning to make it 5-1.
Weiss was ejected for arguing a called third strike on Lyles. Home plate umpire Bill Miller yelled "No more!" as he shook his finger at the dugout. Weiss, who apparently didn't listen, was ejected soon after ... Lyles had six strikeouts ... Ray, who was acquired from the Tigers in a three-team trade in December, was 1-4 in nine games for Detroit last year, including six starts.
