Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado's cleanup hitter, begs to differ on the conventional wisdom about Phillies closer Brad Lidge. Forget those 11 blown saves in the regular season. Lidge can still lock up victories, Tulowitzki said. "His stuff was really good," Tulowitzki said. "I tip my cap to him. You go through ups and downs in this game. I think he's still pretty good. " Tulowitzki spoke from the voice of hard experience. Lidge retired him to finish the Phillies' wins in each of the final two games of the National League division series.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has taken another stride in his comeback from a broken left ankle by running outdoors for the first time in two months. Jeter started the running program Thursday at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa and called it "the last step" before playing in minor-league games. The Yankees captain hopes to run the bases soon. "Everything is good," Jeter said. "No problems whatsoever. I've done everything else. It's a constant progression. " There is no date yet for Jeter to begin a minor- league injury rehabilitation assignment.

THE COLORADO Rockies gave out 15,000 Troy Tulowitzki shirts on Saturday night that weren't exactly letter perfect. The shortstop's name was mispelled T-U-L-O-W-I-Z-K-I, so you might say every fan was teed off. The Rockies knew about the gaffe before Saturday but gave out the shirts anyway. Now comes word that the team plans to give away correctly spelled shirts later this season. The team also said fans can exchange the misspelled item and get a free ticket to a game. Good luck with that.

The Colorado Rockies are closing in on a record-breaking contract extension with shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, the Denver Post reported yesterday. The Rockies and their shortstop have agreed to the framework of a six-year, $30 million contract, which would be the largest extension ever given to a major-league player with fewer than two years of experience. Tulowitzki finished second in the rookie-of-the-year voting, behind Milwaukee's Ryan Braun. The Rockies star hit .291 with 24 home runs and 99 RBIs as Colorado reached the World Series.

The Yankees beat Miami, 10-8, on Sunday in the first exhibition between major-league clubs at Marlins Park. But the new park, built on the site of the old Orange Bowl, was secondary to the startling news that closer Mariano Rivera gave up a run in his inning of work, the first time he has allowed a spring training earned run since April 15, 2008. The ballpark, about 16 miles south of the Marlins' old home in the Miami Dolphins' stadium, is still getting finishing touches, among them a pair of 450-gallon aquaria behind home plate.

ROCKIES PITCHER James Moyer isn't talking. Braves third baseman Chipper Jones won't shut up. During Saturday night's game, Moyer accused Jones of stealing signs. Jones was on second at the time, having doubled in a run to cut the Rockies' lead to 6-2. One batter later, Brian McCann singled home Jones. The Braves went on to win , 13-9. On Sunday, Jones said Moyer was paranoid and even took a shot at the Phillies, the team the 49-year-old lefthander played with for five seasons.

In the same clubhouse at Coors Field where the Phillies appeared optimistic and loose before Game 3 of the National League division series, the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday appeared optimistic and loose before Game 3 of the NL Championship Series. But isn't it difficult to remain upbeat at a time like this? "No," Diamondbacks first baseman Tony Clark said. "You know what's fantastic? The sun came up this morning. Our plane arrived safely. My wife and my kids love me. " The Diamondbacks, like the Phillies, lost the first two games of their postseason series against the Colorado Rockies at home before they arrived at Coors Field.

The Colorado Rockies celebrated their National League championship yesterday with a pregame jubilee filled with fireworks, fly-bys and flashbacks, then played nothing like the charmed team that won its first pennant 6 months ago. Arizona righthander Micah Owings (1-0) struck out a career-best nine batters and allowed just one run and two hits over 6 2/3 splendid innings in the visiting Diamondbacks' 8-1 win over Colorado. Chad Qualls and Juan Cruz completed the two-hitter, and Mark Reynolds homered, doubled and drove in three runs for the Diamondbacks, who watched the Rockies celebrate a sweep of the NL Championship Series the last time they were in town.

A clutch home run came from an unlikely source yesterday as the Colorado Rockies beat the Phillies, 5-4, in Game 2 of the National League division series. Catcher Yorvit Torrealba hit a 1-1 hanging curveball off Cole Hamels for a two-run homer to left field in the fourth inning, extending the Rockies' lead to 3-0. The catcher's home-run trot was admittedly rusty. He hit only two this season, and his last one came May 6 against the San Francisco Giants. Torrealba went his final 56 regular-season games plus the first game in this series without breaking out that trot.

Tulowitzki savors his cycle Troy Tulowitzki laced a line drive into the left-field corner Monday night and took off to snag a page in baseball history. The Colorado shortstop did not intend to stop till he made it to third or was tagged out. As he slid headfirst into third to complete a cycle, Tulowitzki knew he had to thank teammate Brad Hawpe. "We were sitting on the bench together, and he was telling me, 'If you get anywhere close to getting a triple, you'd better go,' " Tulowitzki said.

One pitch, Cole Hamels said, was in the wrong place. The other was in the right place, the Phillies pitcher said. Both offerings brought the same result in Friday night's 4-1 loss to Colorado. While Colorado's Chad Bettis held the Phillies hitless into the eighth inning, Hamels yielded a pair of home runs to Troy Tulowitzki, which served as the pitcher's lone blemishes on an otherwise superb night at Citizens Bank Park. Hamels pitched eight innings and struck out nine batters with one walk.

DENVER - Chase Utley's four-game stay in the sixth spot in manager Ryne Sandberg's lineup ended Wednesday. After doubling in each of his previous four games, the Phillies' second baseman returned to the No. 3 spot against Colorado Rockies righthander Eddie Butler. "It just happened to work today with the guys that I wanted in the lineup," Sandberg said. "So he was kind of the fit for the three-spot. Other than that, I think he's been stinging the ball well, and he's a good fit for there obviously.

A HALF-HOUR later, Mike Adams was still quivering. Want a double dose of adrenaline? Try facing the hottest hitter in the National League in the seventh inning of a tie game with runners on second and third. That was Adams last night. He had the option to walk Troy Tulowitzki with a base open. No chance. "I'm not going to back down from nobody," Adams said. "I'm not scared. " He busted Tulowitzki inside, then stayed away, fooling him into an awkward swing on an 0-2 curveball to escape a jam he had inherited from Antonio Bastardo with the bases loaded and nobody out. After the game, he fumbled with his shoelaces, then stood up to accept a man-hug from Ryan Howard.

THE FIRST-ROUND National League All-Star voting results came in yesterday with very few surprises. Colorado Rockies shortstop and MVP candidate Troy Tulowitzki led all vote-getters. Chase Utley's resurgent season guided him to more than 200,000 votes than the next second baseman, Los Angeles' Dee Gordon. Perhaps a mild upset on the otherwise by-the-stat-book ballot was the omission of one name altogether. Despite putting together a season that looks to be his best in 6 years, at least after 2 months, Jimmy Rollins was not among the top five vote-getters among NL shortstops.

CLIFF LEE says his strained left elbow is improving, but it appears the Phillies lefthander will need more time to heal before he returns to the mound. After a scheduled re-evaluation by the Phillies' medical staff yesterday, Lee was not cleared to start throwing. When put through tests, the former Cy Young Award winner said he could still feel the small spot on the edge of his bone where his flexor tendon attaches. Lee, on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to May 19, is set for another evaluation on Thursday, according to the team.

Phillies lefthander Cliff Lee was reevaluated Monday and has not been cleared to resume throwing. The Phillies said Lee would be reevaluated in three days. Lee went on the 15-day disabled list last Tuesday with a left elbow strain. He had experienced discomfort for about a month but felt increased pain after his most recent outing, May 18 in an 8-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Lee earned the win but threw 116 pitches. "They decided to let me wait [until] I have no symptoms to start throwing," Lee said after the Phillies' 9-0 win over Colorado Monday.

DENVER - This winter, the Rockies demolished about 4,000 seats in Coors Field's upper deck. They installed a bar with 52 beer taps and numerous restaurants. Ryne Sandberg noticed it when the Phillies took early batting practice Friday afternoon. Fly balls, he said, did not travel deep to right like they are known to at high altitude. The Phillies manager wondered if that trend would translate into the games. Two days later, he still does not know because the Phillies offense is dead - even at a place where lineups come to feast.

DENVER - The waterfalls erupted beyond center field Friday night at Coors Field to signal a Rockies home run, and the Phillies bullpen did not budge. This was the second inning of a 12-1 Phillies embarrassment, the first test of a 10-game road trip, and Jonathan Pettibone was to endure this bludgeoning alone. Pettibone was napalm inside a flammable ballpark. Colorado scored seven times before it made six outs. The Rockies' offense, which leads the National League in runs scored, is a threat to any pitcher.
