Tulo's two homers lead Rox to 6th straight win

DENVER (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki homered twice and the Colorado Rockies beat the struggling Cincinnati Reds 9-2 on Wednesday night, earning their sixth consecutive victory despite losing starter Aaron Cook to a leg injury.

Cook was struck in the lower right leg by a line drive off the bat of Joey Votto in the sixth inning. The right-hander hobbled around the mound for a few minutes, before gingerly walking off the field and into the dugout. The team reported the injury as a bruise and said he left the park to get X-rays.

Cook (6-8) was cruising along before he was struck by the comebacker, allowing one run and six hits in five-plus innings. It was his second straight win since coming off the disabled list with a right big toe ailment.
