Eric Milton allowed one run in five innings for his first win in nearly three years and Casey Blake hit a three-run double in the fifth, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 7-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
Milton (1-0) struck out three and walked none in helping the Dodgers to their seventh win in eight meetings with the Rockies. He hadn't won since beating St. Louis on Aug. 8, 2006, for the Cincinnati Reds.
A former All-Star who pitched a no-hitter a decade ago for Minnesota, Milton had reconstructive surgery on his left elbow in June 2007 and missed all of 2008 before joining the Dodgers as a free agent in February.
