SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa pitched eight scoreless
innings to win his sixth straight start against San Francisco and Troy Tulowitzki homered to help the Colorado Rockies avoid a three-game sweep against the Giants with a 4-3 victory Wednesday night.

Ian Stewart homered for the Rockies, who had lost four straight games, including the first two in this series. That helped the Giants shave three games off Colorado's wild-card lead, putting a heightened importance on the final scheduled meeting between the teams this season.

But with De La Rosa outpitching All-Star Matt Cain (13-6) and once again dominating the Giants, Colorado leaves town with a 3½-game lead over San Francisco with just over two weeks left in the season.
