CINCINNATI -- Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning -- a call changed after the umpires initially ruled fan interference -- and the Colorado Rockies held on for a 5-4 victory Tuesday night that ended their streak of six consecutive losses to the Cincinnati Reds.

A fan with a glove in left field reached and grabbed Tulowitzki's fly ball off Sam LeCure (1-1). The umpires initially ruled interference, but changed the call and awarded Tulowitzki his 13th homer after reviewing video that showed the ball had cleared the wall.

The Reds took a 4-3 lead in the seventh on Edgmer Escalona's balk. Josh Outman (2-0) fanned Joey Votto and Jay Bruce to end that rally.

The Rockies are 2-6 against the Reds over the last two seasons.
