DENVER (AP) - It was 28 degrees when Jon Garland threw the first pitch Thursday, and he worked seven solid innings to give the Colorado Rockies an 11-3 win over the New York Mets in the wrap-up of a wintry series at Coors Field.
The crowd was announced at 18,341 as the Rockies matched a team record for the coldest home start. A game against the Montreal Expos on April 12, 1997, was played in a similarly frigid conditions.
A pair of Mets-Rockies games in the previous three days were postponed because of heavy snow.
Garland (2-0) allowed two runs and six hits. He walked none and struck out four.
Troy Tulowitzki homered and hit a go-ahead single off Jonathon Niese (2-1). Dexter Fowler and Josh Rutledge also hit home runs as the Rockies won their sixth straight home game.
BREWERS 7, GIANTS 2
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Yovani Gallardo homered and struck out six in his first start since being arrested on a drunken driving charge, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat San Francisco for a three-game sweep.
Gallardo (1-1) was arrested early Tuesday morning. The right-hander allowed five hits, one walk and one earned run in six innings.
Milwaukee won its season-high fourth in a row after a 1-8 skid.
Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy also homered for Milwaukee, which swept the Giants for the first time since July 18-20, 2008.
San Francisco fell to 0-4 when Matt Cain (0-2) pitches.
CUBS 6, RANGERS 2
CHICAGO (AP) - Alfonso Soriano hit his first home run of the season, Anthony Rizzo also homered and the Chicago Cubs beat the Texas Rangers at a soggy Wrigley Field.
Despite torrential rains that caused citywide floods, the teams were able to play in an occasional drizzle. The Cubs and Texas were rained out Wednesday.
Rizzo hit a two-run homer in the third inning and Soriano followed with a shot that gave the Cubs a 5-0 lead against Alexi Ogando (2-1). Soriano's homer accounted for his first RBI of the season.
Welington Castillo added a career-high four hits as Chicago ended its three-game losing streak.
Carlos Villanueva (1-0) pitched seven innings and gave up two runs and four hits.
