LOS ANGELES (AP) - Andre Ethier hit a two-run homer to help Rubby De La Rosa win for the first time in six weeks and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5 on Monday night.
Aaron Miles and recently acquired Juan Rivera had run-scoring doubles to help De La Rosa (4-4) end a winless stretch of six straight starts since beating the Rockies 10-8 at Coors Field.
The 22-year-old right-hander allowed a run and three hits over six innings, struck out five and walked four. He has giving up seven earned runs in 31 innings during his last five outings, and has an overall ERA of 3.49 in his nine big league starts.
Juan Nicasio (4-3) gave up five run in 5 2-3 innings for the loss.
