in the NL West, 4 1/2 games back of first-place Arizona. "Were healthy again, and weve weathered this last road trip, so I think that weve got some momentum going into the second half," said Cuddyer, who snapped an 0-for-7 skid that included four strikeouts in two previous games in the series. His 16th home run with two outs in the fifth extended Colorados lead to 3-0. DJ LeMahieu grounded out to start the inning before Carlos Gonzalez got hit by a pitch from Ricky Nolasco and Troy Tulowitzki popped up. Cuddyer homered into the right-field pavilion. He had an RBI single with two outs in the first for Colorados first run. "We held the Dodgers to just two runs in the last three games, and thats a team thats been going better than anybody in the game," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "So its a big win and a nice way to end the first half." Jhoulys Chacin (9-4) allowed one run and six hits in six innings, struck out six and walked three to win for the sixth time in his last seven starts. The right-hander improved to 8-5 in his career against the Dodgers, his most wins against any one team. "It was a very impressive outing by Jhoulys," Weiss said. "In the sixth inning when they had runners at first and second, I just went out there to tell him This is your game. If you get through this inning, we win the game. And thats exactly what he did." Chacins nine victories at the break are the most for a Rockies pitcher since Ubaldo Jimenezs 15-1 record in the first half of 2010. Chacin succeeded at the plate, too, going 2 for 2 with a walk. "Before I was just trying to just throw it hard," he said, "but now Im just trying to make my pitch, get them to hit it and get themselves out and get out of the inning with the least amount of damage." Rafael Betancourt pitched the ninth to earn his 15th save in 16 chances. "The Dodgers had been on a real offensive tear prior to this series, so it was nice to see our pitchers be pretty successful against them," Tulowitzki said. "Thats what its going to take if were going to make any noise in the second half. Its going to be a big factor. The pitchings got to be good, and they were this series, thats for sure." The Dodgers fell back to .500 at 47-47 after winning 17 of their last 22 games to climb into second place, 2 1/2 games back. Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig wasnt in the starting lineup, but he entered as a pinch-hitter in the fifth. He singled and then scored on Adrian Gonzalezs single with two outs. "Were in position and kind of have it in our hands," manager Don Mattingly said. 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. "It was a little bit of a battle," Nolasco said. "Just had a little bit of control issues. Wish I could have that one pitch to Cuddyer back."
