PHOENIX - (AP) Todd Helton broke out of a slump with three hits, including his first homer, and drove in three runs as the Colorado Rockies rallied for a 9-6 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

Helton entered the night hitting .231, 97 points below his career average. He singled twice and added a two-run shot off Jon Rauch in the eighth.

Garrett Atkins also had three hits for the Rockies, who snapped a four-game losing streak.

Matt Belisle (1-0) retired all five batters he faced, and Manny Corpas pitched the ninth for his first save in two chances.

Chris Young, Eric Byrnes and Mark Reynolds each homered for the Diamondbacks, who have followed all five of their victories with a loss.
