ST. LOUIS - Jason Marquis took the NL lead with his eighth win yesterday, and Troy Tulowitzki homered for the first time in nearly a month, helping the Colorado Rockies complete their first sweep in St. Louis with a 5-2 win over the Cardinals.

The last-place Rockies won their fifth in a row - four at Busch Stadium - under new manager Jim Tracy. St. Louis has lost four straight.

Clint Barmes had two RBI singles for his sixth consecutive multihit game, and Brad Hawpe doubled and hit a sacrifice fly in the Rockies' first sweep of the year.

The Rockies improved to 7-4 since Tracy took over when Clint Hurdle was fired.
