Wilin "The Bull" Rosario walked to the plate in the seventh inning with a .222 average, but with fire in his eyes.

Then he delivered one of the biggest swings of the season Tuesday night in the Rockies' 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Rosario measured a first-pitch, 91 mph fastball from crafty lefty Cole Hamels, caught it flush and drilled it into the right-field seats for a two-out, three-run homer.

"It was a great feeling. It was important that we won this game for as good as Jorge pitched," said Rosario, referring to starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa.

Actually, De La Rosa requested a game-winner from Rosario earlier in the day.

"I told him in the training room, 'You (have) to make me win this game,' " De La Rosa said with a big smile. "He said, 'I don't know, I'm a little sore.' "
