DENVER, June 2 (UPI) -- Wilin Rosario hit one of Colorado's three homers Friday and the Rockies seized on four Los Angeles errors to roll over the Dodgers 13-3.
The longest Los Angeles losing streak of the season reached four games while the Rockies won their fifth in a row.
A throwing error by Los Angeles catcher Matt Treanor allowed two runs to score in the second and set the tone for the night. Four of the Colorado runs were unearned and the Rockies drew five walks in addition to pounding out 15 hits.
The Rockies scored in six different innings and broke things open with a four-run sixth that included Rosario's two-run blast.
Chris Nelson and Michael Cuddyer hit solo homers for the Rockies in the eighth.
Adam Ottavino (1-0), the third of five Colorado pitchers, picked up the win, working 1 2/3 scoreless innings. Three of the five outs he recorded were strikeouts.
It was Ottavino's first major league victory in his 16th appearance. He posted an 0-2 record last year with St. Louis.
Chris Capuano (7-2) took the loss, allowing four earned runs on seven hits in 5 1/3. His only other setback came May 16 at San Diego.
The Dodgers began what team officials have said will be a month without star outfielder Matt Kemp, who has gone on the disabled list for the second time this year with a hamstring pull.
