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.
BEST OF MAXIM
As pretty much the entire baseball world knows by now, on Friday night, St. Louis Cardinals rookie right-hander Shelby Miller allowed a leadoff broken bat single before retiring the next 27 Colorado Rockies in order.
I asked researcher Tom Orf to help put this almost-perfect game into perspective.
St. Louis Cardinals, 0 walks, 13+ strikeouts
Although I live in the Chicago area and rarely get to see the Cardinals play live, you do not have to watch a game to know when a pitcher utterly dominates a team, which is just what Shelby Miller did on Friday night.
Against a pretty good hitting Rockies team (2nd in the NL in runs scored), Miller gave up a leadoff hit in the first, then proceeded to retire the next 27 batters...
ST. LOUIS Twice, David Freese had departed the batter's box with his head down. His first attempt had ended with a baseball landing in a right fielder's glove. His second with a swing and a miss.
By his third try, he was due.

St. Louis Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal recorded two outs in the eighth inning of team's 6-3 win over the New York Mets on Monday night to pick up his 10th hold of the season. It was the first time Rosenthal had pitched since last Wednesday, thanks to some outstanding pitching from the Cardinals starting rotation and the right-hander picked up right where he left off by...
Lots to cover today... let's do some quick hits:
1) This weekend was poised to be one of the most dominant sweeps in St. Louis Cardinals history (more on that in a minute), but turned into the second most gruesome day of the season (Opening Day fiasco being #1). Jamie Garcia didn't bear down when he needed and got tagged for 5 runs. Carlos Martinez had his first real...
The Colorado Rockies have placed outfielder Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list with a neck injury and recalled outfielder Charlie Blackmon from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Blackmon was in the lineup batting eighth Sunday against the Cardinals.
The 34-year-old Cuddyer is among the league leaders with a .319 average along with seven home runs, eight doubles and 23 RBIs. He...
(AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright was off his game the last time out.
The right-hander might not need his best stuff given how the Colorado Rockies are struggling at the plate.
Wainwright and the Cardinals go for their ninth win in 10 games Saturday when this series continues at Busch Stadium.

Shelby Miller continues to dominate, 7 starts into 2013
Friday, May 10th, 2013, that will be a date that some 37,800 St. Louis Cardinals fans at Busch Stadium will remember for quite a while because young, talented Shelby Miller flat out dominated the Colorado Rockies last night. A leadoff single in the top of the first inning to Eric Young Jr. would be the only base runner...
ST. LOUIS (AP) Adam Wainwright carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning and was one out from the St. Louis Cardinals' second straight one-hitter over the suddenly punchless Colorado Rockies in a 3-0 victory Saturday.
The Rockies had been hitless in 49 consecutive at-bats before Nolan Arenado lined a clean hit to center field with one out in the eighth. Eric Young led off Friday...
The St. Louis Cardinals may be approaching a 40-man roster logjam as top prospects are ready for the major leagues.
John Gast is being called up to St. Louis to replace injured starter Jake Westbrook Tuesday night.
The last thing that you’d think would rule a weekend between the St. Louis Cardinals and Colorado Rockies would be pitching. But not only was that the case, it was a historical level of pitching effectiveness. Between Shelby Miller, Adam Wainwright and Jorge De La Rosa, 21 complete hitless innings were tossed, and in the two of the starts, no-hitters were far from speculative;...
The Colorado Rockies finally broke out of their slump in a big way. Whether they can follow that with another good performance remains to be seen as they run into yet another matchup against a tough pitcher.
Colorado will try to keep it going Monday night against Travis Wood and the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
The Rockies (20-17) had been held scoreless for 28 innings prior...
