DENVER (AP) — Ezequiel Tovar hit a three-run homer and extended his hit streak to a career-high 13 games to help the Colorado Rockies beat the Detroit Tigers 8-5.

Tovar’s eighth homer gave the Rockies an 8-3 lead in the sixth inning, and the shortstop also singled in a five-run second for a 5-0 lead.

Lefty Austin Gomber gave up three runs (two earned) and six singles in seven innings, with seven strikeouts and one walk.

Gomber, who entered with a 7.01 ERA, has the only three wins by a Colorado starting pitcher since May 14, a span of 43 games. He is 2-0 in four career starts against Detroit.
