DENVER (AP) Jon Gray pitched six scoreless innings, Nick Hundley hit a two-run homer and the Colorado Rockies beat the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 8-1 on a gusty Monday night.

Gray (9-6) surrendered four hits and struck out eight in a crisp performance for his first win since Aug. 2. He was helped out by centerfielder Charlie Blackmon, who made a sliding catch in the fifth to thwart a big inning.

DJ LeMahieu had a two-run double in a five-run seventh that turned a pitching duel into a rout.

Kenta Maeda (13-8) was electric once again at Coors Field - except for a hanging slider to Hundley in the fourth. The right-hander with the quirky delivery allowed four hits over five innings. Maeda has a 2.12 ERA in three starts at the hitter friendly park.
