SAN DIEGO The numbers said Heath Bell should have gotten Troy Tulowitzki out.
The numbers were wrong.
Tulowitzki hit a two-run double off Bell with one out in the ninth inning, and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 5-3 on Wednesday to take two of three in the series.
Tulowitzki had been 0-for-14 lifetime against Bell (2-2), a two-time All-Star, before his hit to right-center. He finished with three hits and three RBIs.
I knew I hadnt gotten a hit off him, Tulowitzki said. But I hit three or four balls hard. Just because the numbers read 0-for-14, I know I hit some balls hard.
Colorados Todd Helton had his first four-hit game of the season and fell a triple shy of the cycle. He scored three runs.
Padres starter Dustin Moseley was injured while batting in the fifth. He popped up, immediately grabbed his left shoulder and fell to the ground. He was helped to the dugout and reliever Cory Luebke started the sixth. Moseley sustained a subluxation, where the shoulder slips out of the socket, then immediately slips back in place.
Carlos Gonzalez started the winning rally with a single to center and was sacrificed to second by pinch-hitter Jonathan Herrera. Helton intentionally was walked, and the runners advanced on Bells wild pitch while Tulowitzki was batting.
I think Ive had good success against him, Bell said. Hes a great hitter, and he comes through in the clutch, but I felt like I could get him out, and I think (manager Bud Black) felt the same way. I think Helton was more of a concern than he was. Thats why we put Todd on. I felt like I could get Tulo out, and I made the right pitch.
Matt Lindstrom (1-1) pitched the eighth for the win, and Huston Street worked a perfect ninth for his 17th save in 19 chances.
Aaron Cook made his season debut for the Rockies after being activated from the 60-day disabled list. He allowed three runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings while striking out four and walking four.
Cook broke his right index finger during spring training. He hadnt pitched in the big leagues since Sept. 8 against Cincinnati, when he was hit by Joey Vottos line drive, fracturing his lower right leg.
With the Rockies leading 3-1 in the sixth, Cook had two outs with runners on first and third when manager Jim Tracy came out for a mound visit. Tracy left Cook in, but a wild pitch during Jorge Cantus at-bat allowed Chase Headley to score. Cantu intentionally was walked to chase Cook, and Alberto Gonzalez greeted reliever Matt Belisle with an RBI single to tie it.
I felt pretty good, Cook said. Of course, I walked four guys, which cost me later in the game by not being able to finish the sixth inning. But I was able to use my secondary pitches effectively.
Helton singled in the first, homered in the third and doubled in the fifth and seventh. Helton tied the game at 1 with his eighth homer, which sailed over the porch in the right-field corner.
Tulowitzki singled after Heltons two-out homer, advanced on Seth Smiths single, which hit second-base umpire Tim Tschida and scored on Ty Wiggintons single.
The Rockies made it 3-1 in the fifth when Helton doubled to the gap in left center and scored on Tulowitzkis single to right.
The Padres loaded the bases on three singles in the second before Alberto Gonzalez brought in a run with a grounder for the second out. Moseley struck out to end the threat.
The Padres will call up prized prospect Anthony Rizzo on Thursday. Rizzo, a slugging first baseman whos been tearing up the Pacific Coast League with Triple-A Tucson, flew to San Diego on Wednesday to have his left thumb examined by a specialist in the last step before joining the big league squad.
