Tulowitzki confident in team going forward
PITTSBURGH -- The Rockies entered Tuesday having won three straight series and hoping to ride the momentum. No one is better at riding momentum than Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.

Tulowitzki started the year cold, hitting .244 and going through uncharacteristic fielding struggles through his first 11 games. But Tulowitzki went 6-for-13 with a home run, a double and three RBIs as the Rockies won 2-of-3 at Milwaukee.

Being surrounded by a veteran team -- built in the offseason when the Rockies added second baseman Marco Scutaro, outfielder Michael Cuddyer and catcher Ramon Hernandez -- helped Tulowitzki, who entered Tuesday night hitting .296.

"I said it in Spring Training, we're not in awe of anything," Tulowitzki said. "We've been to all the parks. We've been through good times and slumps. We're not intimidated by going on the road. Nothing fazes these guys. We have a lot of solid, veteran Major Leaguers."

The Pirates' pitching staff entered the series with the second-lowest ERA in the Majors at 2.63, but it's difficult to handle Tulowitzki when he is swinging the bat well.

"They do have a good pitching staff, but it's a matter of keeping the momentum going," Tulowitzki said.
