Starter Scott Feldman looked at the bright side after a tough outing against the Rockies. You can do that in early March.
‘‘Fastball command [is] right where I want it to be,’’ Feldman said after allowing four runs (all earned) and six hits in two-plus innings Tuesday at Salt River Fields. ‘‘Health-wise, I feel great. I feel like my legs are under me and my arm’s caught up to where it needs to be.’’
Feldman, who had allowed one run in two innings in his first spring start, paid the price for walking catcher Wilin Rosario on four pitches with two outs in the first inning. On the next pitch, Todd Helton hit a two-run, ground-rule double that eluded a diving Matt Szczur in left field.
Feldman also allowed a two-out, run-scoring single to Dexter Fowler in the second inning. Feldman was replaced by Travis Wood after Troy Tulowitzki singled and Rosario hit a two-run homer to give the Rockies a 5-0 lead.
