ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jorge De La Rosa held the St. Louis Cardinals hitless into the seventh inning and Troy Tulowitzki’s three-run homer ended Colorado’s scoreless streak at 28 innings, sending the Rockies to an 8-2 victory Sunday. De La Rosa did not allow a hit until David Freese’s two-out single in the seventh, answering a pair of pitching gems by St. Louis over the weekend.
Charlie Blackmon added a two-run homer off Jaime Garcia (4-2) for the Rockies, who snapped a four-game skid. They finished with 11 hits after totaling three in consecutive shutout losses to rookie Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright. Nolan Arenado, who singled with one out in the eighth to break up Wainwright’s no-hit bid Saturday, was among four Rockies with two hits apiece.
