The Diamondbacks just could not seem to score with Haren on the mound, scoring just one run behind their ace in his first 3 games. Wednesday they found a way to get a couple runs in support of Haren and he did the rest.  Haren found a way to get his first win of the season, tossing 7 shutout innings against the Colorado Rockies.

When Haren left the game it was tied 0-0 but his teammates rallied just enough in the 7th inning to reward Haren for his efforts on the mound this time. It took a clutch hit by pinch hitter Ryan Roberts to break the tie and give Haren a lead in the game. Haren was impressive once again, scattering 6 hits, walking 2 and striking out 9 Rockies while improving his record to 1-3 on the year.
