SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP)

Jamie Moyer had another strong outing in his bid to earn a spot in the Colorado Rockies' rotation.

The 49-year-old left-hander struck out four in four perfect innings Thursday night to help the Rockies beat a split squad of San Francisco 7-0.

Moyer, a 24-year veteran who has won 267 major league games with seven teams, went to a three-ball count only twice and 30 of his 45 pitchers were strikes.

''Was I quick enough for you tonight,'' Moyer joked after a typical outing with pin-point control and a below 80-mph fastball. ''At this stage it's all about progress, making a little bit each time. I feel I moved forward tonight.''

Angel Pagan was the only Giants player to make solid contact against him, lining out to center field to start the game.

Moyer spent last season as an analyst for ESPN while recovering from a torn ligament in his left elbow. He signed with Colorado as a minor-league free agent in January.

With his strong spring, which includes giving up just one earned run in nine innings against full squads, Moyer is in the mix for what looks to be three open spots in the Rockies' rotation.

Asked if he feels he has earned a spot, he replied: ''You got to ask the guy down the hall (manager Jim Tracy). I've always looked at spring training as a place where you work to win a job.. It's back to work tomorrow.''

Overall, it was a good day for the Rockies' uncertain starting pitching. Jerry Guthrie, acquired in a trade with Baltimore during the offseason, worked six innings in a minor league game, giving up one run and striking out six.

Guthrie could be the Rockies' opening-day starter, a role he had three times during his five seasons in Baltimore.

''I felt good out there tonight, I kept the ball down in the zone. An overall good outing, 87 pitches and 57 strikes, I'll take that,'' Guthrie said.

Former Twins outfielder Michael Cuddyer, who signed a three-year deal with Colorado, hit his first spring homer, a long two-run shot in the third to make it 4-0.

Pablo Sandoval had the Giants' only hit - a one-out double in the seventh, and the Giants made four errors.

Colorado had nine hits, including three by Wilin Rosario, who raised his spring average to. 444 in his bid to win the backup catcher's spot.

NOTES: Giants ace and two-time NL Cy Young award winner Tim Lincecum got in some extra work Thursday, pitching 5 1-3 inning against the Angels' Double-A team. He gave up six hits, four earned runs and struck out six while throwing 91 pitches. He had only 14 innings of work in regular spring games with eight days left before the Giants break camp. ... The Giants lead all teams in stolen bases with 26 this spring, and have been caught only 13 times (a 67 percent success rate). ... The Giants and Padres lead NL teams with 12 victories. Coming in, the Giants were tops among NL squads in batting (.295) and ERA (3.11).
