Marquis, Rockies beat Cardinals 5-2 for sweep

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jason Marquis took the NL lead with his eighth win and Troy Tulowitzki homered for the first time in nearly a month, helping the Colorado Rockies complete their first sweep in St. Louis with a 5-2 win over the Cardinals on Monday.

The last-place Rockies won their season-high fifth in a row under new manager Jim Tracy.

Clint Barmes had a pair of RBI singles for his sixth straight multihit game and Brad Hawpe doubled and had a sacrifice fly in the Rockies' first sweep of the year.
