Take cover, National League hurlers. It's beginning to look like Tulo Time. While Charlie Blackmon, and his beard, have grabbed the early-season headlines, Troy Tulowitzki is creating his own buzz. The all-star shortstop, known for hot streaks that wreck ERAs, had a home run and two doubles Monday night in the Rockies' 8-5 victory over Arizona. Ten of Tulo's past 15 hits have been extra-base hits, and he has 14 RBIs over that nine-game stretch. "We played good offensive baseball tonight," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, adding that Tulo had a great night. "He's fun to watch. He's a great, great player. He can impact the game on both sides of the ball." Though Tulowitzki is clearing in the zone right now, he says he doesn't know then the hot streaks will come, or how long it will last.
