DENVER, April 7 (UPI) -- Michael Cuddyer drove in four runs Saturday, two of them with a seventh-inning homer, lifting Colorado to a 6-3 victory over San Diego.

The Rockies won their fourth in a row, taking the lead for good with a three-run fifth inning.

Cuddyer singled in a run in the first, drove in another run with a base hit in the fifth and then delivered his homer in the seventh that put Colorado in front 6-2.

Jon Garland (1-0) gave up two runs on five hits over six innings to collect the victory. Rafael Betancourt gave up a hit in the ninth but nothing more to earn his third save.

Colorado's first three runs, one of which was unearned, were charged to losing pitcher Tyson Ross (0-1). He allowed three hits and four walks in four innings.

San Diego, which has yet to play a home game this season, has lost four of its first five.
