Jamie Moyer extended his record for being the oldest winning pitcher in history to 49 years and 180 days, as the Colorado Rockies (15-21) beat the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks (16-22) 6-1 last night in Denver. The two-game series wraps up this afternoon at 1:10 at Coors Field (TV: Root Sports).

Moyer, already on his way to 6 1/3 innings of pitching that baffled D-backs hitters, hit a dribbler to the right side of the infield with runners at second and third with two out in the fourth that scored two runs. Moyer struck out five against two walks and six hits, and didn’t give up a run until allowing consecutive doubles in the seventh.

Official: Tuesday’s Box Score.

The Rockies riddled Corbin (2-2), a 22-year-old rookie, for six runs and nine hits in six innings. The game was smoother than Tuesday’s 5-4 victory at San Francisco. The Rockies blew a 4-1 lead in that one but won on Marco Scutaro’s ninth-inning home run.

“It’s just a well-played game, a clean game without unnecessary drama and flair,” manager Jim Tracy said.
