Rockies off to best start ever!

NEW YORK (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki hit a go-ahead homer through the thick fog and the Colorado Rockies, off to the best start in club history, beat the New York Mets 5-4 on Wednesday night.

Ryan Spilborghs also connected and Esmil Rogers (2-0) won his second straight outing to begin the season as Colorado earned its fourth consecutive victory - all on the road.

The NL West leaders improved to 8-2, with the only two losses coming in extra innings. The Rockies, who opened 7-3 in 1995 and '97, are 5-1 away from Coors Field after going 31-50 on the road last year.

Tulowitzki hit a three-run shot off Jonathon Niese (0-2) in the fifth inning to give Colorado a 4-3 lead.
