DENVER -- Late in the year, Byung-Hyun Kim is showing some consistency.

Kim won back-to-back starts for only the second time in his major-league career, and Brad Hawpe hit a three-run homer in a five-run fifth inning to lead the Colorado Rockies over the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-1 Saturday night.

"We've always had trouble with him," Los Angeles manager Jim Tracy said of Kim, who has allowed five earned runs in four starts against the Dodgers.

Coming off a 2-1 win at San Francisco, Kim (5-10) allowed one run and five hits in six innings. The only other time he won consecutive starts was in his 2003 finale and 2004 opener, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He has allowed two earned runs in his last three starts.

"I think the Dodgers are good hitters, but I just am getting better right now," Kim said. "My fastball and my two-seamer were good today, but my slider wasn't good at all."

Kim, who moved into the starting rotation after struggling as a reliever, threw 52 of 74 pitches for strikes.

"Kim was very efficient with his pitches," manager Clint Hurdle said. "He's so confident right now."

Hawpe, activated Friday after a stint on the disabled list caused by a strained left hamstring, had a career-high four RBI. Garrett Atkins had three hits, including a home run.

"I didn't come back with any expectations or goals," Hawpe said. "I wanted to make an impact, and help this team at the end of the year."

D.J. Houlton (5-8) gave up six runs and 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings, dropping to 1-6 with a 5.34 ERA in his last nine starts. Los Angeles got just six hits and fell seven games behind NL West-leading San Diego.

"First and foremost, you aren't going to win many games in this or any ballpark with one run," Dodgers manager Jim Tracy said. "We get six hits from three people, and that won't make it at any park."

Oscar Robles, Jeff Kent and Olmedo Saenz had two hits each for Los Angeles.

Hawpe hit an RBI double in the first, but Saenz's second double of the game tied it in the fourth.

The home runs by Hawpe and Atkins put the Rockies ahead 5-1 in the fifth, and Kim chased Houlton with an RBI single.

"It was a rough night for me," Houlton said. "I left some pitches up and the hits came from every where."

Colorado added five runs in the eighth inning off Yhency Brazoban on RBI singles by Matt Holliday, Luis Gonzalez and Jorge Piedra, and run-scoring grounders by Atkins and Danny Ardoin.

Notes

  • Dodgers OF Ricky Ledee was held out of the starting lineup with soreness in his left hamstring.
  • Los Angeles RHP Giovanni Carrara will miss the entire series to be with his son.
  • The Rockies have hit five back-to-back home runs this year.
  • Cory Sullivan robbed Jeff Kent of an extra base hit with a leaping catch as he reached the warning track in center field.
