Even When They Come Out on Top, Rockies Stay at the Bottom


For the first time this season, the Rockies finally came out on top in a one-run game, beating the Florida Marlins 3-2 Sunday at Coors Field. Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki pitched in with a first-inning home run, and first baseman Todd Helton did his part by hitting a double and a triple, boosting his average to .343, writes The Denver Post. It didn’t hurt that starting pitcher Aaron Cook had a good game and the bullpen actually did its job. But the team still has a long way to go. They sit at 12-18, a full 10 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers.
