PHOENIX (AP) -- Paul Goldschmidt homered and drove in three runs while extending his hitting streak to 14 games, Wade Miley pitched eight sharp innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks rolled to a 6-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. The Diamondbacks beat up the Rockies in the middle game of the series, getting a season-high 17 hits Tuesday night. They kept swinging and connecting in the finale, scoring five runs the first three innings off Josh Outman (0-2) on their way to 11 more hits. Goldschmidt hit a pair of run-scoring doubles off Outman and a leadoff homer to right in the seventh inning, giving Miley (7-2) more than enough support in Arizona's fourth win in five games. The Rockies opened the series with a shutout victory and left the desert with a whimper, outscored 16-1 the final two games while striking out 23 times. Miley had a lot to do with their struggles at the plate Wednesday night. The left-hander entered Wednesday's game leading all rookies with six wins, an ERA of 2.72 and a .238 batting average against. He also led all NL pitchers with a .429 average and had an eight-game hitting streak, longest by a pitcher in Diamondbacks history. Miley certainly was good on the mound, retiring his first 13 hitters before Jason Giambi's double in the fifth inning. Wilin Rosario followed with an RBI single, but that only cut Arizona's lead to 5-1. Miley was lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth inning after allowing a run and three hits, with five strikeouts and no walks. He didn't get a hit, but didn't need one the way the Diamondbacks knocked Outman around. The left-hander opened the season in the bullpen, making his first eight appearances in relief before moving into the rotation after 49-year-old Jamie Moyer was released. He was effective in his first start, holding the Dodgers to two hits in 3 1-3 scoreless innings with five strikeouts before reaching his limited pitch count. Outman's second start also was short. It just didn't go quite as well. Goldschmidt extended his career-high hitting streak with an RBI double in the first inning. A.J. Pollock, called up before the game to replace new father Lyle Overbay, fouled off three pitches from Outman before lining a run-scoring single to right in the second. Goldschmidt had his second RBI double in the third inning, and Aaron Hill and John McDonald each knocked in runs with two more doubles to make it 5-0. And with that, Outman was out after three innings, allowing seven hits. Goldschmidt made it 6-1 with his drive in the seventh, hitting Adam Ottavino's first pitch out to right for his seventh of the season. He finished 3 for 4 and is hitting .431 during his streak. NOTES: The Diamondbacks selected manager Kirk Gibson's son, Cam, in the 38th round of the draft, but he will play baseball at Michigan State instead of joining his father's organization. ... Rosario's run-scoring single in the fifth ended Colorado's scoreless streak at 18 innings. ... The Diamondbacks have Thursday off before RHP Daniel Hudson pitches against Oakland LHP Tommy Milone on Friday night at Chase Field. ... The Rockies also have a day off before RHP Alex White faces Angels LHP C.J. Wilson at Coors Field on Friday.
