Tulowitzki’s 5 RBIs Lead Rockies Over Giants 10-9

DENVER (AP) — Troy Tulowitzki capped a four-hit night with an RBI double in the 10th inning and the Colorado Rockies gave their faint playoff hopes a boost with a 10-9 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

Tulowitzki homered, doubled and had five RBIs to help the Rockies snap a five-game slide and pull within four games of first place in the NL West. The Giants fell out of the top spot, falling a half-game behind the San Diego Padres, who beat Cincinnati 4-3.

Carlos Gonzalez started the winning rally with a one-out single off All-Star closer Brian Wilson (3-3). Tulowitzki followed with a sharply hit ball to left and Gonzalez raced around the bases, easily beating the relay throw from shortstop Juan Uribe.
