DENVER (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki hit two of Colorado's five home runs, and the Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 on Wednesday.
Drew Stubbs, Charlie Blackmon and Wilin Rosario also went deep for the Rockies, who won a home series for the first time in nearly two months.
Colorado last won a home series taking two of three from San Diego in May. The Rockies managed to split a four-game set with Atlanta in June but lost five other series at Coors Field. They were swept twice.
They erased that mark with back-to-back homers off reliever Joaquin Benoit (3-1). Blackmon started the rally with a single and Stubbs followed with his ninth homer of the season and fifth in his last five games.
Tulowitzki then hit an 0-1 fastball into the left field seats. It was Tulowitzki's second multihomer game this season and 10th of his career.
