Tulo's huge day leads Rockies to big win over San Diego

DENVER (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki has his third multi-homer game in a little more than a week, setting a career high with seven RBIs to help the Colorado Rockies beat the NL West-leading Padres 9-6 Wednesday and avoid a series sweep.

The Padres lead in the NL West slipped to ½-game over the second-place San Francisco Giants who beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Tulowitzki has four multi-homer games in his career, three in an eight-day span. He has 11 homers in his last 13 games.

With Tulowitzki hitting a pair of three-run homers and an RBI single, and Jorge De La Rosa giving the beleaguered bullpen a break by pitching into the eighth, the Rockies climbed within 2½ games of San Diego.
