Walk-off win gives Rockies sweep of Astros

DENVER (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki scored from third on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Colorado Rockies beat the Houston Astros 7-6 on Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep.

Tulowitzki reached on a one-out walk and went to third on Jonathan Herrera's single to center. After an intentional walk to Kevin Kouzmanoff, reliever Aneury Rodriguez (1-5) uncorked a wild pitch to Eliezer Alfonzo and Tulowitzki trotted home with the winning run.

Mark Ellis had four hits, and Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez each homered for the Rockies, who have won five straight for the first time since April 15.

Clint Barmes homered and Brian Bogusevic had three hits for Houston, which has dropped four straight.

Matt Belisle (9-4), the Rockies' fifth pitcher, got the win.
