MLB: Colorado 8, Milwaukee 4

MILWAUKEE, April 3 (UPI) -- Troy Tulowitzki homered and drove in the tiebreaking run with a seventh-inning sacrifice fly Tuesday in Colorado's 8-4 comeback win over Milwaukee.

Carlos Gonzalez smashed a two-run shot in the fifth to erase a 4-2 deficit and the Rockies scored three more runs in the seventh to grab the lead, triggered when Tulowitzki drove in Dexter Fowler with sacrifice fly.

Michael Cuddyer and Todd Helton each went on to add a run-scoring single in the big inning, making a winner of Edgmer Escalona (0-1), the second of six Rockies pitchers.

Cuddyer finished 3-for-5 and Rafael Betancourt collected a save for Colorado, which rebounded from a season-opening 5-4 loss at Milwaukee and notched its first win under new Manager Walt Weiss.

The Brewers' Michael Gonzalez (0-1) was tagged for three runs after issuing two hits and a walk in the seventh.

Ryan Braun cracked a two-run homer for Milwaukee.
