DENVER (AP)Brandon Barnes hit a winning triple off the center-field wall in the 10th inning and the Colorado Rockies snapped an eight-game losing streak, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 Saturday.

The defeat capped a tough day for the Dodgers, who saw outfielder Yasiel Puig and second baseman Dee Gordonleave early because of injuries.

Gordon left in the fourth inning because of discomfort in his right hip and was listed as day to day.

Puig was day to day with a strained right hip flexor. He walked in the fifth, slid hard into second on a double-play grounder and didn’t take the field in the bottom half.

Chris Perez (0-3) allowed a one-out single to Justin Morneauin the 10th. He fanned Michael McKenry before Barnes hit a deep drive to end it.

Franklin Morales (4-4) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings.

The Dodgers fell to 3-8 in extra innings this season while the Rockies improved to 3-3.

Trailing 3-0, the Dodgers scored four times in the seventh and chased Jhoulys Chacin.

Matt Kemp drew a leadoff walk, Andre Ethier singled andJustin Turner hit an RBI single. Nick Masset relieved and Tim Federowicz drove his first offering over the left-field wall for his first homer since Sept. 18 at Arizona.

Colorado made it 4-all in its half on a two-out, RBI single by Corey Dickerson off Dodgers starter Zack Greinke.

The Rockies went up 3-0 in the fifth. McKenry, Ryan Wheeler and Josh Rutledge singled in succession off Greinke for a run.

Wheeler was tagged out in a rundown between third and home on Chacin’s grounder, but Rutledge reached third on the play and scored on Charlie Blackmon‘s two-out single to right.

McKenry, a late addition to the lineup after catcher Wilin Rosario was scratched because of illness, singled in the second to drive in Troy Tulowitzki.

NOTES: The Rockies’ Michael Cuddyer missed a second game and remains day to day because of a sore left shoulder. … Rockies RHP Christian Bergman is set to make his major league debut Monday. He’ll be called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs to start against Atlanta in place of injured Jordan Lyles (broken left hand). … Dodgers pitcher Chad Billingsley, coming back from Tommy John surgery in April 2013, is slated to resume a rehab assignment at Rancho Cucamonga this weekend. … Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw (4-2) will face LHPJorge De La Rosa (6-4) in the series finale Sunday.
