ST. LOUIS (AP) - Nolan Arenado and Ben Paulsen homered, sending Jorge De La Rosa and the Colorado Rockies to a 6-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.

Arenado connected for a two-run shot in the fourth against Lance Lynn (8-6) and Paulsen added a leadoff drive in the sixth. Paulsen finished with two hits and three RBIs in Colorado's first win at Busch Stadium since May 12, 2013, snapping a string of five straight losses at St. Louis.

De La Rosa (7-4) allowed two runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings. The left-hander is 7-2 with a 3.41 ERA in nine starts against St. Louis since joining Colorado in 2008.
