DENVER - Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki learned Saturday he was heading to the All-Star Game again as an injury replacement.
It's his fifth appearance in the All-Star Game where he'll join fellow Rockies infielders Nolan Arenado (third baseman) and D.J. LeMahieu (second baseman) at the mid-summer classic. The Rockies shortstop is replacing Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon, who dislocated left thumb on Saturday against the Reds.
Tulowitzki went hitless in four at-bats with a walk in Saturday's 3-2 win over Atlanta, snapping his career-long 21-game hitting streak. But his walk helped the Rockies rally in the ninth for the win and extended to 37 games his career high streak in which he has reached base.
