Tulowitzki hits 2 more HRs, has 14 in 15 games

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki hit two more home runs, tying a modern major league record with 14 shots in a 15-game stretch, and the Colorado Rockies kept up their playoff push by routing the Los Angeles Dodgers 12-2 Saturday.

Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer in the first inning, doubled in the third and added another two-run homer in the fifth against rookie John Ely. Tulowitzki fouled out with the bases loaded in the
eighth, but Melvin Mora hit a grand slam later in the inning.

Tulowitzki joined Albert Belle (1995) and Barry Bonds (2001) as the only players since 1900 to homer 14 times in a span of 15 games.

The Rockies began the day 1½ games behind San Francisco in the NL West, and chasing for the wild card.
