DENVER (AP) -- Michael Cuddyer hit a solo homer and drove in three runs to help the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-5 on Thursday night.

Cuddyer, who recently had his team-record, 27-game hitting streak snapped, also added a two-run double as the Rockies avoided being swept by Los Angeles in the three-game series.

Carlos Gonzalez contributed an RBI double before leaving late in the game with an apparent injury. The Rockies had no update.

The Dodgers struggled to drive in runners against Jhoulys Chacin (8-3), a night after setting season highs in runs (10) and hits (17). The hard-throwing righty pitched out of trouble time and again, giving up four runs in 5 2-3 innings.
