DENVER, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Carl Crawford had two RBI and scored a run in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 7-4 road win over the Colorado Rockies Tuesday.

The win was the sixth in a row for the Dodgers, who were without injured rookie sensation Yasiel Puig but scored three runs in the second and three more in the ninth to put the game away.

Puig was held out of the game after leaving Monday's contest with an apparent minor strain of his right knee.

Crawford went 3-for-5 Tuesday and Nick Punto was 4-for-5 with a run scored. Tim Federowicz and Adrian Gonzalez both had an RBI for Los Angeles.

Ricky Nolasco (12-9) won his sixth decision in seven starts for Los Angeles. Nolasco allowed two runs on five hits and struck out five in six innings. Chris Withrow came on in the ninth for his first save.

Jhoulys Chacin (13-8) took the loss for the Rockies, who have lost three of their last four games. Chacin allowed four runs on nine hits in seven innings and also drove in a run.

Josh Rutledge chipped in a solo home run for Colorado and Todd Helton and Troy Tulowitzki added an RBI apiece.
