Colorado Rockies top New York Mets again behind Charlie Blackmon, Jorge De La Rosa

DENVER - Charlie Blackmon homered among his three hits, Jorge De La Rosa pitched effectively for six innings and the Colorado Rockies beat the New York Mets 10-3 Friday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Troy Tulowitzki added three hits and three RBIs, and Nolan Arenado extended the majors' longest hitting streak to 22 games with a single in the seventh. The flashy third baseman, whose streak is tied for the third-longest in Rockies history, also made an eye-catching stop of Chris Young's sharply hit grounder down the line in the eighth, finishing the play with an off-balance throw across the diamond.

De La Rosa (3-3) allowed three runs and eight hits, including a two-run homer by Curtis Granderson in the sixth inning. The left-hander struck out four and walked three in winning his third straight since an 0-3 start.
