Moyer continues to make strong case for rotation
Veteran left-hander allows one run over three innings
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Veteran left-hander Jamie Moyer pitched three efficient innings in his bid to make a comeback from Tommy John surgery at age 49, as the Rockies beat the White Sox, 5-2, on Sunday afternoon at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.Moyer held the White Sox to one run on three hits and struck out two in his second start of the spring. Moyer, who has not pitched in a regular-season game since July 20, 2010, while with the Phillies, has given up one run in five Cactus League innings. He is trying to make the club as a non-roster invite. The Rockies had three hits and took advantage of four walks in three innings against White Sox starter Jon Danks, who also wasn't helped by two errors by his defense. Kent Matthes had an RBI double and Jason Giambi had an RBI single off Danks, but just one of the three runs charged to him was earned.
