Rockies ice Mets with temperatures in the 20s

DENVER (AP) - Jon Garland pitched seven solid innings in bitter cold, Troy Tulowitzki homered and hit a go-ahead single and the Colorado Rockies beat the New York Mets 11-3 Thursday.

It was 28 degrees at gametime, tying the Rockies' record for the coldest home start. A game between the Rockies and Montreal Expos on April 12, 1997, was played in a similarly frigid conditions.

A pair of Mets-Rockies games in the previous three days were postponed because of heavy snow.

Dexter Fowler and Josh Rutledge also hit home runs as the Rockies won their sixth in a row at Coors Field.

The crowd was announced as 18,341.
