LOS ANGELES, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Luis Cruz and Matt Kemp each belted a two-run homer Sunday and the Los Angeles Dodgers stayed alive in the playoff hunt with a 7-1 win over Colorado.

A.J. Ellis also went deep and Shane Victorino added three hits as the Dodgers claimed their fifth straight victory and remained two games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the final National League wild-card spot with three contests remaining.

Josh Beckett (2-3) collected the victory with a solid six-inning effort. The right-hander allowed just one run on six hits while walking three and fanning five.

Colorado's Jorge De La Rosa (0-2) was tagged for four runs on five hits over four frames.
