Ian Stewart hit a grand slam and a solo shot and Ubaldo Jimenez pitched seven sharp innings, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 12-1 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.

Stewart's second career grand slam came on a fastball from Astros reliever Tim Byrdak in the fifth inning. His five RBIs tied a career high.

Brad Hawpe finished with four hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in a career-high five runs. Todd Helton added a two-run homer in the third, giving him 1,994 career hits.

Jimenez (3-4) turned in his third straight solid start, scattering seven hits and giving up one run before being lifted for a pinch hitter. He's now allowed just five runs over his last 21 innings.
