Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Jorge De La Rosa pitched a two-hit shutout over six innings and Rafael Betancourt escaped a bases loaded jam in the ninth to preserve a Colorado 4-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Coors Field.

After entering the game with a two-run lead, Betancourt gave up a double to A.J. Pollock, a single to Paul Goldschmidt and a walk to Gerardo Parra.

With the bags full, pinch-hitter Miguel Montero was only able to push one run across on a groundout, and Betancourt locked down his seventh save by getting Wil Nieves to fly out to end the game.

Colorado, which pushed its winning streak to eight games, received a solo homer from Michael Cuddyer and an RBI apiece from Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki.

De La Rosa (2-1) struck out four and stifled Arizona's offense, which didn't push a runner past first base until the ninth inning.

Eric Chavez hit a pinch-hit two-run homer in the setback, Arizona's fourth in five games. Trevor Cahill (0-3) was tagged for all four runs -- three earned -- on six hits and three walks over seven innings of work.
