Holliday erupts in Rockies' victory

Apr 4, 2007 - 10:26 PM DENVER (Ticker) -- Matt Holliday picked up right where he left off last season.

Holliday had four hits and four RBI while Rodrigo Lopez pitched seven strong innings as the Colorado Rockies posted an 11-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

An All-Star, Holliday batted .326 with 34 home runs and 114 RBI - all career highs - last season.

The slugging left fielder clearly has not cooled off over the winter, collecting an RBI double in the first inning Wednesday to kick off his stellar performance. He also belted a solo homer in the seventh to give Colorado a 4-2 lead.

Lopez (1-0), acquired from Baltimore in the offseason, allowed one earned run and six hits. The righthander, who suffered a major league-high 18 losses last season, walked none and struck out five to win his Rockies debut.

Jamey Carroll had three hits while Todd Helton added a double, a single and two RBI for the Rockies, who recorded the franchise's 600th home triumph and won the rubber game of the three-game series.

Lefthander Doug Davis (0-1) struggled in his Arizona debut, allowing three runs - none earned - and eight hits with five walks and six strikeouts in five innings.
