The Colorado Rockies didn't look tired one night after winning a 22-hour marathon in San Diego. Troy Tulowitzki had two doubles and three RBIs, Garrett Atkins had an RBI single and a two-run homer and the Rockies beat the Houston Astros 11-5.

Jeff Baker and Chris Iannetta had two RBIs apiece as Colorado won in Minute Maid Park for just the third time in its last 14 games.

The Rockies arrived in Houston about 8:30 a.m. Friday after beating the Padres 2-1 in a game that lasted over 6 hours and ended about 3:30 a.m. Texas time. Colorado's team bus got caught in morning rush-hour traffic heading to the team hotel.

Franklin Morales evened his mark at 1-and-1. Morales gave up five hits with two strikeouts and four walks in five innings. Colorado's bullpen, a night after pitching 15 innings, gave up only two hits over the last four innings.
