Troy Tulowitzki homered and drove in four runs to help Alex White earn his first victory this year, and the Colorado Rockies snapped a six-game losing streak Wednesday by beating the Miami Marlins 8-4. White (1-3) had lost six consecutive starts since September. He gave up four runs in six innings. The Rockies, who blew early leads of 4-0 and 3-0 in the first two games of the series, won after trailing 3-0. Tulowitzki hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the fifth inning off Carlos Zambrano (2-3) and doubled home a run in the fourth. Carlos Gonzalez added two hits and two RBIs. Jose Reyes had two RBI singles for the Marlins. They managed only one baserunner in the final 5 1-3 innings, and Rafael Betancourt pitched a perfect ninth. Zambrano allowed just five hits but seven runs in five innings. He walked three, and each led to a run. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Marlins, who began the night with the best record in the majors since May 1. The Rockies trailed 4-3 before scoring four runs off Zambrano in the fifth. Ramon Hernandez led off with a walk, and consecutive singles by Marco Scutaro and Gonzalez scored the tying run. Tulowitzki followed with his sixth homer for a 7-4 lead. With that one pitch, Zambrano gave up as many runs as he had allowed in his previous four starts combined. Gonzalez hit a two-out RBI triple in the seventh for the last-place Rockies, who won for only the fifth time in 21 games this month. Miami's Giancarlo Stanton began the night with a career average of .349 against Colorado, but he went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. Hanley Ramirez went 0 for 2 with runners in scoring position and is batting .208 in those situations this year. White gave up eight hits but only one walk. He improved his career road ERA to 6.80 in eight starts. Zambrano walked the first two batters in the fourth inning, and the bout of wildness cost him. Tulowitzki followed with a run-scoring double, and Jason Giambi and Michael Cuddyer hit consecutive sacrifice flies to make the score 3-all. Ramirez doubled with two out in the first and scored on a single by Greg Dobbs to put the Marlins ahead. They added two runs in the second. Zambrano fouled off an attempted sacrifice bunt, then singled home a run. He's a career .238 hitter, but the hit was just his second this year. Notes: Rockies CF Eric Young made his fourth start of the year, replacing Dexter Fowler, who was nursing a sore ankle. Fowler is expected to return for the Rockies' next game Friday at Cincinnati. ... The Marlins are averaging only 1.8 runs per game when RHP Anibal Sanchez is on the mound. He's scheduled to start Thursday against San Francisco. ... Marlins 2B Omar Infante was back in the lineup after missing three games because of a family funeral.
