Phillies rally past Rockies
DENVER -- Freddy Galvis hit two 2-run triples and scored the go-ahead run on Humberto Quintero's single, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the Colorado Rockies 8-7 on Friday night.
The Phillies overcame home runs by Carlos Gonzalez and Josh Rutledge, who was recalled from Triple A Colorado Springs earlier in the day to fill the roster spot left vacant by the loss of slugging shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to a broken rib.
Tulowitzki, who could miss up to six weeks, was placed on the disabled list Friday, a day after he was hurt diving for ball during a 5-4 loss to Washington.
Trailing 7-2 going into the sixth, the Phillies chased Rockies starter Juan Nicasio and pulled to within 7-5 on the first of Galvis' 2-run triples and a run-scoring groundout by Quintero.
