Rox win in 13 over the Dodgers

DENVER (AP) - Dexter Fowler atoned for a crucial mistake by hitting an RBI single with two outs in the 13th inning Saturday that gave the Colorado Rockies a 7-6 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fowler misplayed a line drive by Trent Oletjen into an inside-the-park homer in the 12th that gave Los Angeles a 6-4 lead.

But Fowler led off the bottom half with a walk and scored when Todd Helton doubled on the 15th pitch from Javy Guerra. Helton, who earlier homered on his 38th birthday, helped set up a tying grounder by pinch-hitter Eliezer Alfonzo.

Mark Ellis hit a two-out double in the Colorado 13th and Fowler lined a single inside third base off Blake Hawksworth (2-4).
