• Drew Pomeranz pitched 5 2/3 innings of shutout ball in his first start for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday. The left-hander allowed four hits, while striking out eight and walking one at home against Reno. He was at 97 pitches (62 for strikes) when he was lifted for reliever Manny Corpas in the sixth.
Pomeranz made 22 starts for the Rockies in 2012, going 2-9 with a 4.93 ERA.
The Sky Sox went on to win the game, 3-2, in 15 innings. Third baseman Nolan Arenado was 3-for-6 with a double, lowering his average to .538.
• The Rockies have won their first two series of the season for the first time since 1995. It's also their first 5-1 start since '95, which ended in a Wild Card playoff berth for the three-year-old Rockies.
• Dexter Fowler became the Rockies' all-time leader in center field starts Sunday, surpassing Ellis Burks with his 454th game. Fowler knocked his fourth homer in his first at-bat and stole his first base of the season in his second trip to the plate. He has hit and scored in each of the first six games of the season.
