PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa pitched into the seventh inning before being ejected, and Ben Paulsen
hit a two-run triple as the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-0 on Sunday.
De La Rosa (8-6) allowed four hits in six-plus innings while striking out seven and walking one. The left-hander's only other win since July 11 - a span of 10 starts - came Aug. 7 at Washington.
Relievers Scott Oberg, Christian Friedrich, Jairo Diaz and John Axford completed the four-hit shutout.
De La Rosa and manager Walt Weiss were ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Jeff Nelson as Weiss went to the mound to remove De La Rosa from the game.
De La Rosa gave up a double to Aramis Ramirez to start the inning, then walked Francisco Cervelli. De La Rosa began yelling and gesturing at Nelson following the walk.
Charlie Morton (8-6) allowed five runs (three earned) over six innings.
