Rockies overpower Royals, 6-2

Tulowitzki’s liner off Royals rookie Aaron Brooks curled inside the left field foul pole. The two-run shot was the second of the spring for Tulowitzki, who also made a diving play at shortstop as he shows no ill-effects from season-ending hip surgery. Morneau, the 2014 NL batting champ, sent Brooks’ next pitch halfway up the grassy seating area in left center. read more
