Unearned runs give Rockies victory over D-backs

Posted: Updated:

Jeff Francis earned his first victory in more than a month and the Colorado Rockies used two unearned runs to beat Ian Kennedy and the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Wednesday night to conclude disappointing seasons for both teams.

Francis (6-7) allowed a run on five hits in five innings in his first victory since July 27. He had gone 0-3 in six outings since then.

Third baseman Chris Johnson's throwing error in the fourth led to both of Colorado's runs. D.J. LeMahieu singled in a run for the Rockies.

A.J. Pollock hit his second big-league home run for Arizona.

Kennedy (15-12) gave up no earned runs, striking out eight and walking none. He was 4-0 in his previous six starts.
