The  Rockies had been held scoreless for 28 consecutive innings prior to Tulowitzki’s  home run. Charlie Blackmon then added a two-run shot in the sixth.

The Cardinals lost for just the second time in 11 games.

Fantasy Notes: Tulowitzki is hitting .324/.415/.627 in 33 games this season and he’s on pace for 35 homers and 136 RBI.  Michael Cuddyer was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9, with an inflammed cervical disc.
