NEW YORK, April 14 (UPI) -- Carlos Gonzales hit a two-run home run and Troy Tulowitzki added a solo shot Thursday lifting Colorado over the New York Mets 6-5 in game 1 of a doubleheader.
Tulowitzki went 3-for-4 in the opening game of a doubleheader at Citi Field as the Rockies won their fifth straight game and improved to 9-2. The game was a makeup of Tuesday's Rockies-Mets game, which was rained out.
The Mets were paced by Scott Hairston's two-run home run in the ninth. Hairston had three RBI for the Mets, who dropped their fourth straight game. Jose Reyes had a double and a solo home run.
Mets' knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (1-2) gave up five runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings in the loss.
