DENVER (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa pitched six strong innings, Troy Tulowitzki and Drew Stubbs each hit two-run homers, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Minnesota Twins 6-2 on Friday night in the teams’ first interleague meeting at Coors Field in six years.

De La Rosa (10-6) allowed one run and six hits in winning his fourth straight and reaching double-digit wins in a season for the fourth time in his career. He benefited from a power surge that has seen Tulowitzki hit three homers and Stubbs two in their last two games.

The Rockies also benefited from the return of star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who missed the previous 35 games because of a benign tumor on his left index finger that had to be excised surgically.

Kris Johnson (0-1), recalled from Triple A Rochester on Thursday, gave up five runs on eight hits in four innings.
