DENVER (AP) -- Dexter Fowler's RBI single down the first base line in the 10th inning lifted the Colorado Rockies past the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6 on Saturday.

The Rockies got their fourth win this season in their last at-bat, one night after losing to the Dodgers in extra innings.

Yorvit Torrealba's two-out single off Matt Guerrier (1-2) started the rally. Pinch-hitter Wilin Rosario followed with an infield single, narrowly beating the throw to first. Fowler then lined a hard grounder that shot past first base into right field, driving in Torrealba with the winning run and snapping the Rockies' three-game losing streak.

Matt Belisle (3-2) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory.

The loss was compounded for the Dodgers because of another injury, this time to Carl Crawford. He left in the third inning after suffering a left hamstring cramp while legging out his second double in two at-bats.
