Kyle Freeland keeps on keepin' on.
Sunday, he went seven terrific innings in a 2-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix.
Freeland held the D'backs to seven hits and walked one while striking out six batters. He raised his record to 16-7 with the win.
Nolan Arenado doubled in a run in the third inning and Gerardo Parra's RBI single in the fifth brought in the Rockies second run.
That's all Freeland and three relievers would need.
