By Jim Thomas / MLB.com
Tulowitzki wore a pad on the elbow, but showed no ill effects from Sunday's injury, at the plate or in the field.
In his first at-bat, Tulowitzki fouled off a couple of pitches before taking a called third strike against Mariners right-hander Hector Noesi. Tulowitzki hit a sharp grounder to first in his second at-bat, then left the game along with the Rockies' other regulars after four innings.
