DENVER (AP) -- Matt Davidson homered and drove in three runs, Gerardo Parra had three hits, and the Diamondbacks beat the Rockies 7-2 on Saturday night. Chris Owings also had three hits for the D-backs, who won for the first time since being eliminated from the NL West race Thursday. Charlie Blackmon had three hits for the Rockies. Arizona starter Trevor Cahill (8-10) lasted into the sixth despite taking a line drive by D.J. LeMahieu off his right leg in the bottom of the first. The trainer didn't come out to look at him, and Cahill got the next three batters to strand runners at first and third. Colin McHugh (0-3), still looking for his first career win, allowed six runs and 11 hits in five innings for Colorado. The Diamondbacks jumped on McHugh in the first. Willie Bloomquist reached on a single and scored on Martin Prado's two-out double. They made it 2-0 in the second on Tuffy Gosewisch's RBI single to right. Arizona broke it open in the third on Davidson's three-run homer to center. Parra followed with a double and came home on Owings' single that made it 6-0. The Rockies broke through in the fourth on Jordan Pacheco's sacrifice fly that scored Todd Helton to make it 6-1. Cahill ran into trouble in the sixth and surrendered an RBI single to Jonathan Herrera that made it 6-2. Josh Collmenter came on and struck out Ryan Wheeler to end the inning. Cahill allowed two runs -- one earned -- and seven hits, striking out five in 5 23 innings. The Rockies were without outfielders Michael Cuddyer (right forearm, wrist) and Carlos Gonzalez (strained right middle finger), shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (day off) and catcher Wilin Rosario (calf strain). Helton and second Josh Rutledge were the only players from the opening-day starting lineup in the game Saturday. NOTES: Parra has reached safely in 17 of his last 20 games. ... Cuddyer has missed three straight games but said he hopes to play Sunday. ... Tulowitzki was not injured, just given a normal day off. ... D-backs LHP Patrick Corbin (14-7) will face Rockies RHP Juan Nicasio (8-8) in Sunday's game.
