DENVER (AP) Justin Morneau tied a season high with six RBIs, including five as part of an eight-run first inning against spot starter Carlos Frias, and the Colorado Rockies routed the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 16-2 on Wednesday.
Morneau hit a three-run homer and a two-run single in the opening frame as the last-place Rockies chased Frias (0-1) after just two outs. Morneau and Carlos Gonzalez are the only Rockies players to drive in five runs in an inning.
Charlie Blackmon went 5 for 5 with a solo homer as the Rockies took two of three from the Dodgers. Los Angeles began the day with a three-game division lead over San Francisco, but trailed 15-0 after six innings against the team with the worst record in the league.
