LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kevin Kouzmanoff drove in his first four runs since joining Colorado this week, and the Rockies needed five relievers to hold off the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6 Sunday.

Kouzmanoff blooped a three-run double in the first inning as Colorado took a 5-0 lead. He later singled home a run, and the six-year veteran tied a career high with four RBIs.

The Rockies got Kouzmanoff from Oakland on Tuesday for either a player to be named or cash. He had been at Triple-A Sacramento since being demoted on June 6.

The Dodgers had won five in a row.
