Ramirez's first homer at Coors Field lifts Dodgers

DENVER (AP) - Manny Ramirez broke out of a slump with a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 5-4 Friday night.

Ramirez capped the Dodgers' four-run sixth with his 549th career home run and first at Coors Field, clearing the center field wall and dropping into the visitors bullpen to put the Dodgers on top by a run.

The drive, Ramirez's third of the season but first since April 18, broke a tie with Mike Schmidt for 14th on the all-time list. It also snapped a 43 at-bat homerless streak for the slugger at Coors
Field, the most Ramirez had gone without homering at any stadium that he's played in.

Jonathan Broxton, the last of five Dodgers' pitchers, got three outs for his 12th save in 14 chances.
