Cook's solid pitching sparks Rockies victory

DENVER (AP) - Aaron Cook pitched effectively for 6 1-3 innings, Carlos Gonzalez homered and added a run-saving defensive gem in center field and the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-3 Saturday night.

Seth Smith and Miguel Olivo each had three hits with two RBI apiece to help the Rockies reverse a losing trend against Los Angeles, which had won six of its previous seven games in Colorado,
including a 5-4 victory in Friday night's series opener.

Cook (2-3) allowed three runs - one earned - on six hits. He walked two and struck out one in his first win in a month.

Dodgers starter Hiroki Kuroda (5-3) had his shortest - and roughest - outing of the season, giving up seven runs (five earned) on 10 hits in four innings.
