DENVER — Charlie Blackmon homered and drove in three runs, Chad Bettis pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the Colorado Rockies snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.

Adam Lind homered for the Brewers’ only run.

Colorado had lost nine of its last 10 before getting a strong outing from Bettis (3-2), who got his first win since carrying a no-hitter into the eighth inning at Philadelphia on May 29. He allowed one run and five hits, walked two and struck out five in 6 1-3 innings.

Bettis got the Rockies off to a good start by holding Milwaukee scoreless until the sixth. It was the first time in six games a Colorado opponent didn’t score in the first inning.

The offense, which hit .215 in the previous 10 games, gave Bettis enough support to get the win.
