DENVER (AP) - Pinch-hitter Casey Blake broke a tie with a three-run double in the sixth, Ted Lilly pitched five effective innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped a three-game skid with an 11-7 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.
Aaron Miles and Jamey Carroll each had four hits as the Dodgers banged out a season-high 18. With the bases loaded, Tony Gwynn Jr. made a diving catch in left field for the final out - the second time he has done that this season.
Lilly (5-5) was his typically solid self, scattering four hits before being lifted for Blake, who didn't start because of a sore neck.
The Dodgers' bullpen nearly squandered a late six-run lead, much like the Rockies the night before.
