LOS ANGELES (AP) - Michael Cuddyer ended a losing season with the Colorado Rockies in a personally satisfying way.
The right fielder won the NL batting title on Sunday, when the Rockies closed out their season with a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Cuddyer went 1 for 5 with three strikeouts and finished with a .331 batting average to win the batting title by 10 points over Atlanta's Chris Johnson, who was held out Sunday to rest his right shoulder.
Cuddyer had never hit better than .285 before this season.
He became the sixth Rockies player to lead the NL in batting, joining Andres Galarraga, Larry Walker, newly retired Todd Helton, Matt Holliday and Carlos Gonzalez.
