Contact impasse doesn't slow Masterson; Indians tag De La Rosa and Rockies, 14-3

ASSOCIATED PRESS

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — A day after contract talks with the Indians stalled, Cleveland ace Justin Masterson threw six strong innings in a 14-3 rout of the Colorado Rockies on Friday.

Masterson’s spring training scoreless streak was snapped after 14 2-3 innings, with both runs against him scoring on wild pitches. While he doubled his walks total to four, Masterson struck out six and allowed five hits in his next-to-last start before opening day.

General manager Chris Antonetti said Friday that talks have been tabled after Masterson rejected the team’s “very competitive” offer.

Rockies opening day starter Jorge De La Rosa was knocked around for five runs and nine hits in three innings. The Indians batted around in a four-run third. Elliott Johnson had two RBI singles off De La Rosa, who walked two.
