Rockies Salvage Final Game In St. Louis

The Colorado Rockies saw the St. Louis Cardinals dominate the first two games of the series, but took their turn Sunday with an 8-2 win.

Jorge De La Rosa no-hit the Cardinals through six-plus innings, and Colorado broke a 20-inning scoreless streak against St. Louis starting pitching with a three-run third. Troy Tulowitzki knocked a three-run home run off Jaime Garcia to give the Rox a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.
