St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - Corey Dickerson's second triple of the game drove in the deciding run in the bottom of the 15th inning as the Colorado Rockies dealt the St. Louis Cardinals a 7-6 loss at Coors Field.

Dickerson also had a run-scoring triple in the eighth inning and finished 3- for-7, while Charlie Blackmon collected four hits to help the Rockies earn a split of the four-game series and reduce the Cardinals' lead atop the NL Central to one game over Pittsburgh.

Todd Helton aided Colorado's cause with a game-tying solo homer off Cards closer Edward Mujica in the bottom of the ninth, with Troy Tulowitzki socking a two-run shot earlier on. Rob Scahill (1-0) earned his first major league victory after working out of a jam in the top of the 15th.

Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with two RBI for St. Louis, while Jon Jay had two hits and scored twice in the setback. Fernando Salas (0-3) received the loss after giving up a run on two hits in 1 2/3 innings.

Both starting pitchers, the Cardinals' Michael Wacha and Colorado's Roy Oswalt, permitted four runs in 4 2/3 innings of work. Wacha was tagged for 12 hits, with Oswalt hurt by issuing four walks.
