ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa ended a 6-game losing streak to start the season and had his first RBI on a bases-loaded walk in a breakway nine-run seventh inning in the Colorado Rockies' 11-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.
Dexter Fowler homered for a 2-0 lead in the sixth and drew a bases-loaded walk one at-bat after the .056-hitting De La Rosa's free pass. Todd Helton added a three-run double and Ian Stewart had a three-run homer for Colorado, which scored 10 runs Thursday to beat the Astros.
Albert Pujols, Yadier Molina and Ryan Ludwick homered for the Cardinals, who wasted a strong outing by Adam Wainwright (5-4). Molina hit his first homer since May 5 in the seventh, four innings after getting conked on the side of the head on Helton's backswing.
