RBI Single in 13th Lifts Rockies Past White Sox
DENVER (AP) -- Ty Wigginton singled with two outs in the 13th inning to score Troy Tulowitzki all the way from first and lift the Colorado Rockies past the Chicago White Sox 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Tulowitzki, who drew a one-out walk off Will Ohman (0-1), took off as Wigginton's flare dropped in shallow center field among three charging White Sox players.

It was the Rockies' first win in five extra inning games this season.

Rex Brothers (1-0), the Rockies' seventh pitcher, pitched a hitless 13th to pick up his first major league win and help Colorado snap its three-game losing streak.

The White Sox, making their first appearance in Colorado since 2005, fell to 4-8 in extra inning games this season.
