DENVER (AP) — Kris Bryant went deep for the second straight game, one of four home runs by Colorado, and the Rockies beat the Chicago Cubs 7-3.

Nolan Jones and Elehuris Montero each hit a two-run homer in a four-run fifth, and Ryan McMahon homered and finished with three hits for the Rockies.

Colorado took two of three from the Cubs. The Rockies hadn't won a series since taking two of three from the Chicago White Sox from Aug. 18-20.

The Cubs dropped the final two games at Colorado to lose ground on NL Central-leading Milwaukee. Chicago continues to hold the second NL wild-card spot.
