Diamondbacks Extend Win Streak To Two, Willis Impressive And Scary

Sports Network | June 5, 2010

Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Dontrelle Willis pitched six shutout innings in his return to the National League, helping the Diamondbacks to a 4-3 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Willis (1-0), who was traded from Detroit on Tuesday, allowed five hits, walked four and had three strikeouts. The lefty even singled in the third inning and scored the game's first run on a head-first dive into home following a base hit from Stephen Drew.

Ryan Roberts, who had the game-winning pinch-hit RBI single in the ninth inning of Friday's 7-6 win, added a two-run pinch-hit double Saturday night.

The Diamondbacks have posted back-to-back wins following a 10-game slide.
