Troy Tulowitzki homered early, then doubled to start a two-run rally in the eighth inning that sent the Colorado Rockies over the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5 on Sunday.
Michael Cuddyer, Dexter Fowler and Corey Dickerson also homered for the Rockies, who salvaged a split of their 10-game homestand.
Yuniesky Betancourt and Norichika Aoki homered and Carlos Gomez had two hits and scored twice for the Brewers.
The Rockies had hoped to stay in the thick of the NL West race when they resumed after the All-Star break against the three worst teams in the NL. Instead, they lost three of four to Miami and were in danger of losing the series to Milwaukee before coming back against John Axford (4-4).
Trailing 5-4, Tulowitzki led off with a double down the third base line and scored on Cuddyer's double down the first base line. One out later, Nolan Arenado hit a go-ahead single.
Rex Brothers got the final three outs for his seventh save.
The Brewers took the lead in the eighth when Gomez doubled and Betancourt homered off reliever Matt Belisle (5-5).
It was one of five home runs hit in the thin air at Coors Field.
The Rockies trailed 3-1 when Dickerson led off the sixth with his first career homer. One out later, Cuddyer hit his 17th to right to tie it.
Fowler's two-out homer off reliever Michael Gonzalez in the seventh gave Colorado a 4-3 lead. It was his 12th of the season.
Jhoulys Chacin was in line for the win before Betancourt's homer in the eighth. Chacin allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out four in seven innings.
Tulowitzki gave the Rockies a 1-0 lead in the first with his 19th home run of the season off starter Donovan Hand. The Brewers tied it in the second on a bases-loaded infield single by Jeff Bianchi.
Aoki made it 2-1 in the third with his sixth homer, and Bianchi gave the Brewers a two-run cushion with an RBI single in the fourth.
Hand was making six innings, his longest outing of the season in just his fifth start. He allowed three runs on eight hits and didn't walk a batter.

The Colorado Rockies lack a sense of urgency.The Colorado Rockies lost a baseball game at home on Saturday night 7-5.

August is just around the corner. That means the Colorado Rockies are wrapping up a stretch of games against the Chicago Cubs, the Miami Marlins and the Milwaukee Brewers, three teams that are competing for the league’s worst record. I stated earlier that this stretch of games to end July would be very telling. We’d learn a lot about the Blake Street Bombers. More importantly...

Brewers slugger Ryan Braun as we all know is currently serving a 65-game suspension for his role in the Biogenesis scandal and that suspension came after Braun's stern and repeated denials of ever using PEDs.

Last week, we saw the first domino fall from Major League Baseball's investigation into Biogenesis, a Miami-area clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). That domino came in the form of Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who was suspended without pay for the remainder of this season. The suspension will total out to 65 games, which is in between...
