NEW YORK (AP) _ Troy Tulowitzki homered and drove in three runs,
Carlos Gonzalez also had three RBIs and the Colorado Rockies took
advantage of a struggling New York Mets bullpen in a 7-6 victory
Monday night.

Tulowitzki made a terrific jump throw from shortstop to preserve
a seventh-inning tie and Seth Smith reached base four times,
including on a triple and a double. The Rockies improved to 7-2,
with the only two losses coming in extra innings, to match the best
nine-game start in franchise history.

Jason Hammel pitched six respectable innings and Colorado took
the opener of a four-game series, winning its third straight road
game. The Rockies are 4-1 away from Coors Field after going 31-50
on the road last year.
