DENVER, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Michael Cuddyer went 4-for-4 with a solo homer and three RBI Sunday, powering the Colorado Rockies over Cincinnati 7-4.

Cuddyer stroked a pair of run-scoring doubles and added a seventh-inning, fence-clearing shot, raising his average to .328, third-best in the National League.

D.J. LeMahieu's two-run double in the fifth broke a 2-2 tie for Colorado, which took the rubber match of a three-game series.

Corey Dickerson went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and Nelson Arenado added a solo shot for the winners.

Adam Ottavino (1-2) notched the win after starter Tyler Chatwood left in the third inning with a bruised thumb.

Reds starter Mike Leake (11-6) was lit up for six runs on eight hits in a 4 1/3-inning effort.

Shin-Soo Choo belted a two-run homer for Cincinnati, which holds a six-game lead over Arizona for a National League wild card berth.
