DENVER (AP) — Charlie Blackmon hit his first career leadoff homer and Tyler Chatwood pitched seven strong innings, lifting the Colorado Rockies to an 8-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.

John Lackey (10-13) struggled on the road again, allowing four runs and six hits in six innings. The right-hander is 1-5 away from Fenway Park since the All-Star break.

Lackey also gave up solo homers to Troy Tulowitzki and Corey Dickerson.

Chatwood (8-5) shut down a potent Red Sox lineup as he gave up one unearned run and three hits before being pulled for a pinch hitter with a 4-1 lead in the seventh.

The Rockies went on to score four times that inning to seal the win, with DJ LeMahieu and Michael Cuddyer each delivering two-run singles.

Cuddyer finished the night 2 for 4 with a double to raise his average to an NL-best .335.
