PHOENIX -- The Colorado Rockies figured it was only a matter of time until their high-powered offense started producing. That time came on Sunday, when Clint Barmes, Matt Holliday and Garrett Atkins homered and the Rockies routed Arizona, 13-5, ending the Diamondbacks' winning streak at eight games. "We've got a good team and I think we're going to put it together here very soon," said Barmes, who came off the bench to drive in four runs. "I think today was a big start. It was definitely one that we needed."

Olin Browne is not among the favorites to win the U.S. Open golf championship, but the little-known golfer at Pinehurst is fresh from a 59, which he shot during a 36-hole sectional qualifier at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Md. The 59 followed a two-over 73, which caused him to contemplate withdrawing and giving up on his dream to play in the Grand Slam event. He's glad he stuck around but was not as happy as he might have been after a birdie-eagle-eagle finish.

DENVER -- The Dodgers' relievers performed their usual routine Friday. They met in the dugout five minutes before the national anthem. They walked out to the bullpen together. And they preserved their team's lead, this time with Chan Ho Park, Scott Elbert, Cory Wade and Scott Proctor combining to post three scoreless innings in a 7-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field that maintained the Dodgers' 3 1/2 -game lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West.
