Recap


Rockies 2, Yankees 0: Carlos Gonzalez hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning while Jorge De La Rosa pitched six solid frames as host Colorado prevailed at soggy Coors Field.

De La Rosa (3-3) allowed three hits for his fifth quality start in his last six outings. Matt Belisle and Rex Brothers each pitched an inning before Rafael Betancourt worked around a leadoff single in the ninth to earn his ninth save and complete the four-hitter for the Rockies first shutout of the season.

New York's Hiroki Kuroda (4-2), who had won his last four decisions, yielded two runs and seven hits in seven innings while falling to 1-6 against Colorado.

Josh Rutledge delivered a two-out single to center field before Gonzalez drove a 3-2 pitch into the Rockies bullpen in right-center for his seventh homer. Michael Cuddyer and Todd Helton followed with singles before Ben Francisco ended the threat with a running catch of rookie Nolan Arenado's line drive to right.

The Yankees had a runner in scoring position in three of the first six innings, and a runner at second base twice with one out while stealing four bases. New York's Chris Nelson, who was acquired from Colorado on Wednesday, went 0-for-3 in his return to Coors Field and is 0-for-10 in three games as a Yankee.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Helton on Tuesday was sentenced to 24 hours of community service and one year of probation after pleading guilty to driving while ability-impaired. He had been charged with driving under the influence and careless driving Feb. 6. ... Colorado SS Troy Tulowitzki did not play after an MRI revealed minor swelling in his left groin. Tulowitzki missed the final 113 games last season after he underwent groin surgery. ... Fans were removed from the upper deck during the fourth inning as the threat of a thunderstorm loomed. They were allowed to return to their seats in the sixth.
