DENVER, May 3 (UPI) -- Rafael Furcal's three-run homer climaxed a seven-run sixth inning Friday and sent the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 11-6 victory over Colorado.
Los Angeles won its seventh straight.
The Dodgers rallied from a 3-0 deficit with its big inning, and then saw the Rockies claw back to within 7-6.
LA put the game away with a four-run eighth featuring a three-run double by Matt Kemp.
Kemp and Furcal both had four RBI and Brad Penny (5-2) lasted five innings to get the win. Penny gave up three runs on three hits.
Jeff Francis (0-3) was in position to pick up his first win of the year before being roughed up in the sixth. He eventually surrendered four runs on six hits in 5 1/3.
