DENVER (AP) ― Dexter Fowler hit two homers off fill-in starter Matt Magill and Jorge De La Rosa pitched seven effective innings, helping the Colorado Rockies to a 7-2 win over the slumping Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.
It was the second multihomer game of the season for Fowler. Todd Helton and Michael Cuddyer added solo homers as the Rockies took two of three from Los Angeles.

De La Rosa (7-3) struggled early, but settled down as he allowed six hits and struck out five for his first career win against Los Angeles. He was 0-8 entering the game.
Magill (0-1) was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to step in for lefty Ryu Hyun-jin, who was a late scratch with a bruised left foot.
Ryu said the day before he was dealing with a sore foot and wasn’t sure if he would be able to pitch. The lefty is 6-2 with a 2.89 ERA this season.
The injury-riddled Dodgers placed outfielder Matt Kemp on the disabled list last week with a strained right hamstring.Snider’s single helps Pirates stop Reds
PITTSBURGH (AP) ― Garrett Jones is a level-headed guy. Even he gets mad sometimes.
He was upset when he stepped into the batters’ box in the eighth inning Sunday after striking out with runners on second and third in his previous at-bat. Jones then unleashed his anger by hitting a 463-foot game-tying home run
Travis Snider then hit an RBI single with two outs in the 11th inning and the Pirates, boosted by a stellar effort from its bullpen, beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4.
Five Pittsburgh relievers combined for 10 scoreless innings. Starter Jeanmar Gomez was removed with tightness in his right forearm after giving up four runs in the first.
