PHOENIX - Troy Tulowitzki homered, had two doubles and drove in three runs to lead the big-hitting Colorado Rockies to an 8-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night.

Baseball's best offensive team so far this season, the Rockies roughed up Wade Miley (2-3) for seven extra-base hits in the first six innings, including a pair of homers.

Tulowitzki led off the sixth with his sixth homer and Justin Morneau added a two-run shot later in the inning to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. Nolan Arenado had one of Colorado's six doubles to stretch his hitting streak to a baseball-best 18 games and the Rockies had 12 hits overall.

Franklin Morales (3-1) allowed four runs in five innings and LaTroy Hawkins worked a perfect ninth for his eighth straight save.

Gerardo Parra homered, Miguel Montero drove in two runs and Paul Goldschmidt had three hits for Arizona.

Ailing catcher

Wilin Rosario spent Sunday morning getting treatment and icing his sore left hand. He was expected to get the day off, but it appears he's going to miss a few more games. He was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday.
