DENVER -- Nearing the end of what could be his final season, Todd Helton showed hes still far from done. Helton, who turned 40 this month, homered twice and matched a decade-old career high with six RBIs to power the Colorado Rockies past the Cincinnati Reds 9-6 on Friday night. "Two-homer games, six RBIs, that doesnt happen too often nowadays," said Helton, who has hinted at the possibility of retirement but has yet to formally announce his plans. "Ive got to take it all in and enjoy it." Jorge De La Rosa pitched six effective innings for his 15th win. Heltons 28th career multihomer game and first since 2011 left him one hit shy of 2,500. "Hes a very special player and its a blessing to play with guys like that," De La Rosa said. The first of Heltons two three-run homers came in the fourth off Bronson Arroyo (13-10), roughed up for six runs and nine hits over 3 1-3 innings in his shortest outing of the season. He issued a one-out walk in the first, ending a 30-inning string without one, and had his four-game winning streak snapped. Helton homered again in the seventh off reliever Logan Ondrusek, his 11th of the season. "The old guy can still do it. This was a special night for Todd and everyone who was here to see it," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Both times, Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario hit successive singles to set the table for Helton, who also had six RBIs against the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 29, 2003. "Ive seen him do a lot of damage," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "He may not be as quick, or this or that, back might be bothering him. Hes a smart hitter, plus we made some mistakes, especially the last one. It was down the middle of the plate." Tulowitzki singled and Rosario doubled to put runners at second and third in the eighth when Helton, given a rousing ovation by the crowd, came up for his final at-bat. He worked the count full, fouling off a couple of pitches from newly recalled reliever Zach Duke before finally striking out. Helton said he appreciated the warm reception and acknowledged he thought about hitting one more out of the park. "I was thinking three three-run homers in a game would have been really cool," Helton said with a smile. "It didnt work out, but thats all right. We can save it for another day." De La Rosa (15-6) allowed three runs and eight hits to win his fifth consecutive start. He improved to 9-1 with a 2.73 ERA in 13 home starts this season. The Rockies were trailing 2-1 when Tulowitzki and Rosario singled to start the fourth. Helton followed by driving Arroyos offering into the seats in the second deck above the right-field scoreboard. "Even in his older years, hes still quick enough to get to the ball on the inner half sometimes, and you can see his wheels turning," Arroyo said. "Sometimes he can guess right. And hes been a guy over the years thats definitely been a challenge for me to get out. It was a 1-0 changeup. He could have popped up to short but he squared it up, broke the game open a bit." Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon followed with singles and both scored when Charlie Culbersons line-drive double to left sailed over the head of Ryan Ludwick, who appeared to misjudge the flight of the ball. Arroyo retired De La Rosa on a grounder for the first out of the inning and was relieved by Alfredo Simon. The Rockies also touched up Arroyo for a run in the first when rookie Corey Dickerson led off with a triple and scored on D.J. LeMahieus double. The Reds tied it in the second on the first of Ryan Hanigans two RBI singles. He also singled home Todd Frazier, aboard on a leadoff double, in the fourth. Ludwick hit a two-out solo homer in the fourth. In the sixth, with the Rockies in front by three, Hanigan was hit by a pitch and pinch-hitter Cesar Izturis doubled to put runners at second and third with one out. But De La Rosa got Shin-Soo Choo on a grounder and struck out Brandon Phillips, the last batter he faced. Helton hammered a 1-0 offering from Ondrusek in the seventh for his second three-run shot. Phillips hit a two-run single off reliever Jeff Francis in the ninth, and Devin Mesoraco had a sacrifice fly. NOTES: The Rockies finished with 19 hits, one shy of their season high. ...

A day after visiting the Bulls, the New York Knicks star continued his tour in Houston. A video board outside the Toyota Center depicted one image of Anthony in Houstons white uniform with red lettering and another in a retro red and yellow uniform. Between the pictures was Anthonys logo with the word Melo in it. He was wearing his No. 7 in both renderings, despite the fact that current Rocket Jeremy Lin wears that number. The Rockets would likely have to unload the point guard to snag Anthony. Lin responded to the snub on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon with a bible verse. He tweeted the verse Luke 6:29: "If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them." He later tweeted a much stronger response to the jersey pictures. "Im entitled to standup for myself/say i felt disrespected as i did thru tweet but point is love unconditionally/as jesus loved me," Lin tweeted. Houston got the biggest prize in free agency last off-season when it signed Dwight Howard away from the Lakers, with designs on mmaking a deep run in the playoffs this year.dddddddddddd But the Rockets were bounced from the post-season in the first round just as they were the year before. So they started looking for more upgrades to the roster. They made the first move to free up money for adding players by agreeing to a trade that will send centre Omer Asik and cash considerations to the New Orleans Pelicans for a protected future first-round draft pick. Lin is set to make more than $8 million next season in the final year of a three-year contract. Thats a steep price for a backup after he was relegated to the bench last season because of solid play by Patrick Beverley and started just 33 games. The 30-year-old Anthony would add another proven score to a team that features Howard and Harden. Anthony averaged 25.2 points last season with the Knicks, which was second in the NBA to Oklahoma Citys Kevin Durant. Harden was fifth in the league with a 24.3 average, but the team struggled in its playoff series against the Trail Blazers while focused on shutting him down. Anthony is expected to meet with the Mavericks and the Lakers before sitting down with the Knicks. The Rockets would not provide details about Anthonys meeting Wednesday.
