DENVER (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki rescued Colorado with a game-ending RBI single that lifted the Rockies to a 6-5 victory over Milwaukee after the Brewers tied it with two unearned runs in the ninth.
Center fielder Dexter Fowler, a defensive replacement in the eighth, initially kept the Brewers at bay when he leaped to rob Chris Dickerson of a homer leading off the ninth against Huston Street.
But the Brewers loaded the bases with two outs after Street hit Rickie Weeks with a pitch. Second baseman Clint Barmes dropped Corey Hart's popup for an error, letting in a pair of runs to tie it at 5.
But Tulowitzki came up big in the bottom half, getting the win for Rafael Betancourt (2-1) and Colorado.
