Tulowitzki's three-run bomb leads Rockies past Brewers 5-4

DENVER (AP) -- Troy Tulowitzki hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 on Friday night.

With runners on second and third and no outs, Kameron Loe (2-3) relieved starter Yovani Gallardo and Tulowitzki hit an 0-1 pitch off the glove of a leaping Ryan Braun at the left-field wall. Tulowitzki stood near first base before resuming his home-run trot after it was clear Braun was unable to catch the ball.

Todd Helton drew a leadoff walk and Carlos Gonzalez doubled down the left-field line before Tulowitzki's 11th homer.

Taylor Buchholz (1-0) picked up his first win in nearly two years and Huston Street worked the ninth for his eighth save.
