Antonio Senzatela pitched into the seventh inning, Josh Fuentes had three hits, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3 in Denver on Sunday.
Senzatela (5-2) followed up the first complete game of his career with 6 1/3 solid innings against the NL West-leading Dodgers. He gave up one run on three hits and struck out three to help Colorado (23-29) win its final home game of the season.
Mychal Givens earned his first save for the Rockies, who finished 12-18 at Coors Field.
Zach McKinstry doubled in the third inning for his first major league hit and added a single in the ninth for L.A. (38-16). The Dodgers had their five-game winning streak snapped.
Colorado had lost nine of its last 11 but remain in the hunt for one of the two NL wild card spots with eight games remaining. The Rockies finish the regular season with four games at San Francisco and four more at Arizona.
Colorado took the lead in the fourth when Raimel Tapia and Kevin Pillar led off with singles against Tony Gonsolin, and one out later Trevor Story walked. Fuentes singled to center to drive in Tapia and Pillar to make it 2-0.
Gonsolin (1-2) gave up two runs on three hits and struck out 10 over five innings.
The Rockies stretched their lead against the L.A. bullpen in the sixth. Charlie Blackmon, Story and Fuentes hit one out singles off Blake Treinen to score one run, and Elias Diaz and Ryan McMahon had RBI singles against Victor Gonzalez to make it 5-0.
Senzatela walked Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger with one out in the seventh and was replaced by Yency Almonte, who gave up a run-scoring single to Edwin Rios.
Colorado tacked on a run in the eighth when Fuentes and David Dahl had consecutive singles, and Fuentes scored on a fielder's choice by Diaz.
The Dodgers got a two-run single from A.J. Pollock in the ninth and had the tying run at the plate but Givens got Chris Taylor to ground out to end the game.
