PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Jorge De La Rosa went 6 1/3 innings to record his 13th win and Colorado's bullpen shut the door Tuesday in the Rockies' 5-3 win over Philadelphia.

De La Rosa (13-6) yielded three runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks. He struck out three in logging a third victory in three starts.

Matt Belisle and Rex Brothers teamed up for 1 2/3 scoreless relief innings and Rafael Betancourt hurled a 1-2-3 ninth for his 16th save as Colorado rebounded from a 5-4 loss in Monday's four-game series opener.

Troy Tulowitzki bashed a two-run homer in the first inning, putting the Rockies ahead to stay, and Wilin Rosario also went deep for the winners.

Phillies starter Tyler Cloyd (2-3) was touched for five runs on eight hits over six innings.

Chase Utley and Domonic Brown each drove in a run for Philadelphia.
