PHOENIX -- Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki left Sunday's 4-2 loss to Arizona with a strained left shoulder after an awkward slide home.

Tulowitzki, limited to 47 games in 2012 after a groin injury that required surgery, will be re-evaluated Monday. He was listed as day to day.

"Obviously, I was worried when it happened. It kept tightening up," Tulowitzki said after the game, according to The Denver Post. "But I am definitely more confident about it now. Other than losing the game, I am sitting here taking a deep breath and expressing a sigh of relief that I am going to be OK."

Tulowitzki tried to score in the first inning on a single by Michael Cuddyer. Tulowitzki slid into the plate and was easily tagged out by Miguel Montero.

"I have never been in a series that involved making so many outs on the basepaths," Tulowitzki said, according to The Post. "Some of them were good, being aggressive. And some were not so good. We have preached aggressiveness, but we have to be smarter. In the end, they just beat us."

The two-time All-Star, who leads the Rockies with 22 RBIs, remained in the game for two more innings and had three assists. He gave way to Jonathan Herrera in the bottom of the third.
