Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Jhoulys Chacin threw seven scoreless innings to lead the Colorado Rockies past the Washington Nationals, 7-1, in the third installment of a four-game set at Nationals Park.

Chacin (6-3) scattered just five hits and walked one with three strikeouts for his third straight win, after going winless for more than a month.

DJ LeMahieu finished 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI and Nolan Arenado had his own solo shot as well. Michael Cuddyer, Corey Dickerson and Chacin each contributed with an RBI apiece for the Rockies, who snapped a five-game losing streak.

Dan Haren (4-9) had his shortest outing of the season, going just 3 1/3 innings while surrendering six runs on seven hits. He hasn't won a game since May 9 and the Nationals are winless in his last eight starts.

Ryan Zimmerman's homer in the ninth accounted for Washington's lone run.
