LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Cuddyer hit a two-run homer and drove in another run to help the Colorado Rockies defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Sunday in the teams’ last game before the All-Star break.
The clubs split their four-game series, leaving Colorado with a 46-50 record. The Dodgers fell back to .500 at 47-47.
Jhoulys Chacin (9-4) allowed one run and six hits in six innings, struck out six and walked three. Rafael Betancourt pitched the ninth to earn his 15th save in 16 chances.
Ricky Nolasco (6-9) gave up three runs and eight hits over five innings of his home debut with the Dodgers.
Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig wasn’t in the starting lineup, but he singled as a pinch-hitter in the fifth and then scored.
