D-backs 5, Rockies (ss) 0 Box »

Baseball's top pitching prospect Archie Bradley did not disappoint in his Cactus League debut Monday. After his first start was pushed back due to rain, the right-hander fanned six batters over three frames as the D-backs beat Colorado's split-squad team. Bradley allowed one hit and he issued two walks in facing three batters over the maximum in three innings. He worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the second and consistently hit the low- to mid-90s with his fastball.

He reached the mid-90s with his fastball and threw 24 of 37 pitches for strikes, fanning two batters.
