Tulowitzki slugs Rockies past Phillies

 

Troy Tulowitzki homered for the second consecutive night as the Colorado Rockies beat the Phillies, 5-3, at Citizens Bank Park Tuesday night.

Tulowitzki’s two-run home run in the first inning got the visitors off to a 2-0 lead. It was the slugging shortstop’s 22nd home run of the year.

The Rockies tacked on a third first-inning run when Phillies starting pitcher Tyler Cloyd threw a wild pitch, then scored single runs in each of the next two innings on a Dexter Fowler RBI single and a solo home run from Wilin Rosario.

Cloyd allowed five runs on eight hits over six innings.

The Phillies (55-70) scored all three of their runs in the third inning. John Mayberry Jr. scored on a error by longtime Rockies first baseman Todd Helton. Chase Utley followed that up with an RBI single to score Jimmy Rollins. Domonic Brown then drove in what would prove to be the final run of the game with a sacrifice fly to center field that scored Carlos Ruiz.

Jorge De La Rosa got the win for the Rockies (59-68). He’s now 13-6 on the season. Rafael Betancourt picked up his 16th save of the year.

Ryne Sandberg is now 2-3 as Phillies interim manager.
