In Saturday's 5-3 win over the Dodgers, Tulowitzki drove one seeing-eye ground ball into right field for an RBI single. Later in the game, he unexpectedly nearly laid down a bunt single.
"It's the type of baseball where if we play the game that way, we're a real good team," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "He's a thinking-man's player. When you combine that with what he can do physically on the field, he's a very special young player."
After Sunday's series finale, the Rockies will play six of their next seven games -- three against the Giants and three against the Padres, both ahead of Colorado in the National League West standings -- away from home.
Entering Sunday, the club was 42-21 at home while 25-40 on the road. The Rockies have been shut out in four of their last six road losses.
"I don't think I need to deliver a message to these guys," Tulowitzki said. "It's just me playing the game, doing the small things to win games. Just because I'm the four-hole hitter doesn't mean the team expects me to hit home runs. I can get things done in a lot of different ways."
