Young hit an arching ball toward the left-field corner, and outfielder Josh Willingham let it drop in, hoping it would land foul. Robert Fick delivered an RBI single earlier in a three-run ninth off Jorge Julio (0-1). Jon Rauch (1-0) struck out the only two batters he faced in the top half.
Miguel Cabrera, Mike Jacobs and Cody Ross homered as Florida built leads of 5-0 and 6-1, but Ryan Church hit a three-run homer off Anibal Sanchez in the sixth.

DENVER (AP) - Rodrigo Lopez (1-0) gave up two runs - one earned - and six hits in seven innings for his first win since last Aug. 17, and Matt Holliday backed him with four hits and four RBIs.
Last year, Lopez led the major leagues with 18 losses and dropped his final six decisions after beating the New York Yankees on Aug. 17.
Doug Davis (0-1) made his Arizona debut and allowed three first-inning runs - all unearned due to two errors by first baseman Conor Jackson. Davis lasted five innings, allowing eight hits and five walks with six strikeouts.
