Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Drew Stubbs' solo home run in the top of the
ninth inning broke the deadlock and made the Colorado Rockies a 5-4 winner

Stubbs pinch-hit for the pitcher spot to lead off the ninth and delivered his
first home run as a Rockie off of Addison Reed (0-2). LaTroy Hawkins pitched
around a pair of singles to secure his ninth save of the season.

at 4-4, but earned his first win of the season regardless.
Troy Tulowitzki finished 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored

The lead didn't last long, however, as Morneau and Arenado each drove in a run
in the top of the fourth to tie it. Tulowitzki got things started with a
