PITTSBURGH, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- Troy Tulowitzki broke a sixth-inning tie with an RBI, infield single Friday, helping push Colorado to a 4-2 victory over Pittsburgh.

The Rockies ended a four-game skid with Jhoulys Chacin (10-5) getting the win by allowing a run on six hits over eight innings.

Colorado scored three times in the sixth to take a 4-1 lead. Dexter Fowler walked to open the inning, took third on a single by Corey Dickerson and scored on the base hit by Tulowitzki.

Todd Helton added a two-run single in the inning and Chacin protected the lead by retiring the next nine men he faced.

Rex Brothers allowed back-to-back doubles that produced a Pittsburgh run in the ninth, but he still managed to pick up his eighth save.

Tulowitzki opened the Colorado scoring with a second-inning home run.

Gerrit Cole (5-5) took the loss, giving up three runs on three hits in 5 1/3.
