DENVER (CBS/AP) – Troy Tulowitzki drove in four runs, including a tying two-run single in Colorado’s five-run seventh inning, and the Rockies rallied past the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-7 Thursday night.

Tulowitzki delivered against Mike MacDougal and pinch-hitter Jason Giambi drew a bases-loaded walk to break the 7-7 tie as the Rockies sent 11 batters to the plate in the seventh.

With the rally, Matt Reynolds stood to get the win, but because he was ineffective — three earned runs and four hits in one inning, the official scorer gave the victory to Rafael Betancourt (2-0), who pitched a perfect eighth.

Scott Elbert (0-1) recorded just one out while picking up the loss, yielding two earned runs and a hit.

Matt Kemp slugged his league-leading 18th HR, tripled and doubled before striking out as the tying run in the 9th inning against Huston Street.
