The weather was cold, but the Colorado Rockies’ bats were red hot late in an 11-3 win over the New York Mets at Coors Field. It was 28 degrees in Denver at first pitch, tying the lowest recorded temperature for a ballgame in the city’s big league history. That didn’t deter the Rockies, who came back from an early deficit and took the lead for good on Troy Tulowitzki’s RBI single in the sixth inning. Wilin Rosario and Todd Helton drove in two runs apiece in a six-run seventh inning, and Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler each homered in the eighth. Jon Garland worked seven strong innings on the mound for his second win. The Rockies have won six games in a row. Tonight they welcome the Arizona Diamondbacks to Denver for the start of a three-game series. ESPN Radio 1410 has the action, with pregame coverage at 7:05 and first pitch at 7:40.
