DENVER (AP) - Jordan Lyles pitched effectively into the seventh inning in his Coors Field debut for the Rockies, added a career-best three hits and drove in two runs in Colorado's 8-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night.

Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki homered for the Rockies, who beat the White Sox for the second time in six tries in Denver.

Lyles (2-0) scattered five hits, walked two and struck out four in 6 2-3 innings. He left after giving up Alexei Ramirez's RBI double and then walking Tyler Flowers in the seventh. Right-hander Adam Ottavino came in and struck out Dayan Viciedo.

Lyles joined the Rockies from Houston in a trade for Dexter Fowler last winter. While with the Astros, he made just one appearance at Coors Field, receiving a five-inning no-decision on May 28, 2012, when he collected a single in two at_bats and scored a run.

The last Colorado pitcher to go 3 for 3 was lefty Brian Bohanon against the Dodgers on July 20, 2001.

Chicago right-hander Felipe Paulino (0-1) allowed six earned runs on nine hits and four walks in 4 1-3 innings in his return to Coors Field, where he pitched for the Rockies in 2011 before being plagued by arm troubles the last two years.

Gonzalez, who has hit safely in each of the Rockies' eight games so far, lined a fastball over the right field wall in the first inning for his third homer of the season. Lyles helped his own cause with a double into left-center an inning later that scored D.J. LeMahieu from first base for a 2-0 lead.

The Rockies loaded the bases in the third and Wilin Rosario bounced an infield single off Paulino. But he escaped further damage by striking out Nolan Arenado and getting LeMahieu to fly out to shallow left.

Colorado loaded the bases again in the fifth and LeMahieu's single just over the glove of second baseman Marcus Semien made it 4-0 and chased Paulino.

Lyles, who singled leading off the fourth, greeted right-hander Daniel Webb with a line-drive RBI single up the middle to make it 5-0, and Charlie Blackmon followed with a sacrifice fly.

Tulowitzki opened the sixth with a solo shot to right-center off Webb for his first homer of the year.

NOTES: This marked Chicago's first night game of the season. ... Before the game, the Rockies activated LHP Boone Logan from the 15-day DL and optioned OF Corey Dickerson to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Logan went on the disabled list March 21 with inflammation in his left elbow. He signed a three-year contract with Colorado last winter after four years with the Yankees. ... Blackmon was selected NL co-player of the week after hitting .542 (13 for 24) in seven games with a .560 on-base percentage. He also won the award Sept. 16-22, 2013.
