(Tulsa-AP) -- The Colorado Rockies were in Tulsa Sunday for a game with their new Double-A farm team, the Tulsa Drillers.

The Rockies used a grand slam by Chris Stynes and a two-run homer by Greg Norton to win 7-to-1.

Both homers came off Scott Elarton, who's seeking to return to his 17-win form of 2000.

Elarton missed all of last season with a shoulder injury. He gave up six runs and seven hits in 4-and-a-third innings.

Rockies starter Darren Oliver pitched five shutout innings.

Colorado opens its season Tuesday in Houston.
