LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Dodgers have dealt a massive blow to the Colorado Rockies chances at winning their first ever division title, sweeping the club from Denver in a three-game set, getting the finale by a score of 5-2 thanks to a huge home run from Yasiel Puig.
The offense once again struggled to get anything going. They went 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position and their star third baseman struck out three times in brutal fashion, giving him five consecutive punchouts in this important series.
Starter Tyler Anderson did his job for the second game in a row, allowing just two runs over six innings of work. He got some help from his defense and pure good fortune on a few hard-hit balls but got the results necessary to keep his team in the game.
