Cook has best start of the year as Rox avoid sweep in LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Aaron Cook outpitched Hiroki Kuroda with seven scoreless innings, Troy Tulowitzki had a pair of RBI singles among his three hits, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 on Wednesday night to avoid a three-game sweep.

Cook (2-5) scattered six hits, struck out two and walked two in his longest outing of an injury-delayed season. The 32-year-old right-hander, who missed the first three months with a broken finger on his pitching hand, has won consecutive starts after going 0-5 with a 5.82 ERA in his first seven outings.

Rex Brothers pitched the eighth, giving up a two-out double to Matt Kemp, and Huston Street earned his 27th save in 29 attempts.
