Associated Press  |  Last updated July 14, 2013
Michael Cuddyer hit a two-run homer and drove in another run to help the Colorado Rockies defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Sunday in the teams' last game before the All-Star break. The clubs split their four-game series, leaving Colorado with a 46-50 record. The Dodgers fell back to .500 at 47-47. Jhoulys Chacin (9-4) allowed one run and six hits in six innings, struck out six and walked three. The right-hander improved to 8-5 in his career against the Dodgers, his most wins against any one team. Rafael Betancourt pitched the ninth to earn his 15th save in 16 chances. Ricky Nolasco (6-9) gave up three runs and eight hits over five innings of his home debut with the Dodgers. The right-hander struck out four and walked three while pitching in front of a large contingent of family and friends from his nearby hometown of Rialto. Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig wasn't in the starting lineup, but he entered as a pinch-hitter in the fifth. He singled and then scored on Adrian Gonzalez's single with two outs. Cuddyer's 16th home run with two outs in the fifth extended Colorado's lead to 3-0. DJ LeMahieu grounded out to start the inning before Carlos Gonzalez got hit by a pitch from Nolasco and Troy Tulowitzki popped up. Cuddyer homered into the right-field pavilion. Cuddyer hit an RBI single with two outs in the first gave Colorado a 1-0 lead. NOTES: The Dodgers expect to have CF Matt Kemp back from the DL a few days after the break ends. ... Dodgers OF Carl Crawford came in as a defensive replacement in the ninth after missing two straight games with lower back stiffness. ... The Rockies' 426 runs scored are the most since 2010, when they had 430 in the first half. ... Colorado's 879 hits are the most since 2003, when they had 901 before the break. ... Dodgers manager Don Mattingly plans to return home to Evansville, Ind., during the break to visit his mother.
