DENVER (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki hit a three-run home run after No. 3 hitter Carlos Gonzalez was intentionally walked in front of him, Tyler Chatwood pitched seven strong innings for his first win of the season, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-1 last night.

NEW YORK (AP) - Aaron Harang threw no-hit ball for seven innings but was pulled after 121 pitches, and reliever Luis Avilan gave up David Wright's two-out single in the eighth as the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 6-0 last night.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - James Loney drove in four runs and the Tampa Bay Rays overcame a four-run deficit to beat the New York Yankees 11-5. Pinch-hitter Desmond Jennings had an RBI single before Loney's two-run single off Adam Warren (0-1) in the seventh inning that gave Tampa Bay a 6-5 lead.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets have traded slumping first baseman Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league pitcher Zack Thornton and a player to be named. The Mets announced the move just minutes before they played Atlanta last night. Davis was on the field during batting practice earlier in the day.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran was out of last night's starting lineup against Tampa Bay due to left shoulder and right wrist soreness. Beltran flipped over the short wall down the right field line while chasing Desmond Jennings' foul ball in Thursday night's 10-2 win over the Rays. Beltran finished the game and had an MRI of the shoulder and wrist.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia 76ers owner Joshua Harris calls the 19-win season a success. Harris says he believes the Sixers successfully completed the first step of their painful rebuilding process. He says the Sixers need at least two to four elite players to become a contender again in the NBA.

NEW YORK (AP) - The Philadelphia Flyers might have No. 1 goalie Steve Mason back for Game 2 against the Rangers. Mason missed yesterday's 4-1 loss to New York because of an undisclosed upper-body injury. He was hurt last Saturday against Pittsburgh, when he was knocked over and hit the back of his head on the ice. Mason and the Flyers have declined to say whether he has a concussion.
