Diamondbacks look to continue fast start against Rockies

Apr 13, 2007 - 3:56 PM Colorado (4-5) at Arizona (7-3) 9:40 pm EDT

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Brandon Webb and the Arizona Diamondbacks look to start another winning streak.

Webb makes his third start of the season Friday when the Diamondbacks host the Colorado Rockies.

Arizona had a six-game winning streak halted Wednesday in a 3-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. Despite the loss, the Diamondbacks have matched the franchise's best start through ten games. They also started 7-3 in 2000.

Pitching has been the key to the Diamondbacks' success. Every Arizona starter has gone at least five innings this season. Starters have worked seven innings four times, six innings twice and five innings three times.

The reigning Cy Young Award winner, Webb (1-0, 4.50 ERA) will look to keep that string going for the Diamondbacks. The righthander is 7-4 with a 3.44 ERA in 16 career starts against Colorado.

Webb recorded his first win of the year on Saturday in a 7-1 victory over the struggling Washington Nationals. The righthander allowed one earned run in seven innings and struck out eight.

Colorado starters have been equally durable, throwing at least six innings in eight of their nine contests this season.

Rockies starter Josh Fogg (0-0, 2.84) who has never lost to the Diamondbacks. In eight career starts, Fogg is 5-0 with a 4.27 ERA against Arizona, winning three of those starts here.

The righthander allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings in his first start of the season against the San Diego Padres but did not get a decision in the 3-2 loss.
