DENVER, July 5 (UPI) -- Michael Cuddyer paced Colorado's offense with three runs scored and three RBI Thursday, helping boost the Rockies past the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-5.

Colorado salvaged the finale of a three-game series and ended a three-game skid.

The Rockies trailed by a run heading into the third, but they scored four times in that inning. Cuddyer had a two-run double in the frame and scored on a sacrifice fly by Wilin Rosario.

Colorado tacked on three runs in the fifth with Cuddyer scoring on a single from Todd Helton. Cuddyer hit a solo homer in the seventh to give the Rockies a 9-4 lead.

Jhoulys Chacin (8-3) picked up the win, surviving 5 2/3 innings while giving up four runs on nine hits. He has won each of his last five starts.

Chris Capuano (2-6) was touched for six runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings to take the loss. It was only the second setback for the Dodgers in their last 12 games.
