MILWAUKEE - Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez each homered for the second straight game, leading the Colorado Rockies over the Milwaukee Brewers 8-4 Tuesday night and giving Walt Weiss his first win as a major league manager.
Tulowitzki is off to quick start after missing the last four months of the 2012 season with a left groin injury that required surgery.
The All-Star shortstop went 2 for 5 with a homer and two RBIs in Monday's loss on opening day.
Tulowitzki and Gonzalez each drove in two runs in the win. Weiss posted his first victory, a year after he was managing his son's high school team.

The company's appeal could take up to a year.
MANITOWISH WATERS - After Terry Theisen got her middle school math class started with some computer coding, she needed to admit something about her level of programming expertise.
"None, absolutely none," Theisen said with a smile.
The North Lakeland School teacher did some basic coding when she was young, telling her students she used actual punch cards. Friday, was very different. Theisen's entire class learned on the go as they clicked and clacked on laptops as part of a worldwide event from their Manitowish Waters school.
