Ubaldo Jimenez threw eight innings of four-hit ball, Paul Phillips drove in three runs and the streaking Colorado Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-2 on Sunday.
Phillips had a career-best four hits, including his first homer since 2006. Troy Tulowitzki, who missed four games with a bruised left hand, had two hits and an RBI.
The Rockies have scored 38 runs in their first four-game winning streak of the year and are 6-4 under manager Jim Tracy after going 18-28 under Clint Hurdle.
Albert Pujols had a rare two-run sacrifice fly in the first inning for the Cardinals, who have totaled three runs and nine hits in the last two games. Joel Pineiro (5-6) allowed three runs in five innings after skipping a start due to back spasms.
