Michael Cuddyer had three hits, including an RBI single in the ninth inning that gave the Colorado Rockies a 2-1 win over the Houston Astros in interleague play on Tuesday.

Troy Tulowitzki doubled off Houston closer Jose Veras (0-4) to start the ninth and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Cuddyer followed with his single, which sailed just out of reach of leaping third baseman Matt Dominguez.

Tulowitzki had an RBI single in the first. Chris Carter tied it in the fourth with an RBI grounder.

Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa scattered five hits with one run over seven innings. He had won his previous four starts.

Matt Belisle (2-2) threw a perfect eighth for the win. Closer Rafael Betancourt struck out two in the ninth for his 11th save.
