The Rockies completed a 10-game road trip that produced a 4-6 record and cost them the services of closer Rafael Betancourt who's injured. And it may gotten worse Sunday with the injury report on Troy Tulowitzki. The all-star shortstop suffered an injury to his left side in the rib area while swinging during an at-bat Saturday. "He's OK. He's a little sore" manager Walt Weiss said. "I don't want to say it's an oblique (injury) but it's in that area. Oblique can be a pretty serious injury. I don't think it's that. He's got a little soreness in that rib area." Helton on hold. First baseman Todd Helton who singled twice Saturday and is four hits from 2500 was rested Sunday. Marlins ace Jose Fernandez who's 21 tipped his cap toward Helton after one of his hits Saturday. Helton hasn't said this is his last year as a player but Saturday he said it's likely he will retire before the 2014 season. "I'm fairly sure this is probably it but I don't want to be somebody who says I'm going to retire and then come back" Helton said. "I will leave the door open but I'm 40 years old. This is a young man's game."
