CINCINNATI (AP) -- Carlos Gonzalez tied his career high with three of Colorado's six homers, and Troy Tulowitzki went 5 for 5 with a pair of homers Wednesday night, powering the Rockies to a 12-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

The Rockies hadn't hit six homers in a game since they had that many against the Marlins on July 4, 2008, according to STATS LLC.

Gonzalez got Colorado's splurge going with a solo shot and a three-run drive off Pedro Villarreal (0-1), who was roughed up by one of the NL's top offenses in his first big league start. Tulowitzki tied his career high with five hits, including a two-run homer and a solo shot.

Todd Helton also connected as the Rockies piled up a season-high 20 hits, the most allowed by Cincinnati since 2009.
