(Colo.)- Rockies Rout Kershaw, Dodgers 9-1; LA Drops 7th In Row

Cubs beat Pirates

The Dodgers have fallen off their record-setting pace, and their stranglehold on the division is being threatened by a surprise contender

Even in a season in which they had been considered one of the best Dodgers teams in history, winning 90 games before the calendar flipped to September, the club still must lean hard and heavy on its ace.

The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Saturday in Major League Baseball action at Dodger Stadium. Now the Rockies are continuing the trend. After this series, the Rockies will face the Diamondbacks for four games next week.

The Dodgers have lost a season-high eight consecutive games, while dropping 13 of their last 14. Like Clayton Kershaw said, they just need to win a game to begin to turn things around. He'll bat out of the seventh spot against Yu Darvish. The Dodgers were held to just two runs over three games, while Arizona exploded for 19. "Right now it's on the opposite side".

"I was lucky enough I was able to get a pitch to hit". He walked Charlie Blackmon, DJ LeMahieu reached on an error by shortstop Chris Taylor and Kershaw walked Arenado to load the bases. They were the only hits of the night for the dynamic duo, but they did plenty of damage.

Jon Gray (7-4) limited Los Angeles to one run on four hits and two walks in six innings. Colorado racked up a few more runs against the Dodgers' bullpen and won, 9-1, before an announced crowd of 51,492. Story came home on a passed ball, and Lucroy drove in his second run of the night with a single. In his past 17 games since August 21, Puig is batting.315 (17-for-54) with seven runs, five doubles, one triple, three home runs and six RBI along with a 1.033 OPS. That gave the Dodgers a 4-1 lead.

"That first inning, you saw the fight", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. Mark Reynolds added two hits. "He looked like he really didn't skip a beat, to be honest with you".

Darvish was not only the fastest to 1,000 in games (128), he was also quickest in innings (812). I want to go deep into the game.

"I was not great", continued Kershaw. "After they scored those four runs and we were down by three, they didn't do much offensively, and that was exactly our time". Wood is 4-2 with a 5.02 ERA and 41 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

"We can put some runs on the board, there's no doubt about it", Gonzalez said. The win total it will take to punch them into the postseason is a calculation still forming. Darvish has a 4.50 ERA as a member of the Dodgers and has allowed opposing hitters to hit.291 off him.

Struggling Dodgers right-hander Pedro Baez struck out the side in his only inning, responding well after he was booed by a sold-out crowd when he entered the game.

I've seen some Dodger fans say he could be used as the elusive lefty reliever in the playoffs but Ryu has some reverse splits. I think it's ridiculous that this guy who grew up as a Dodger, and has done nothing but compete and continue to grow, he gets booed at home. Turns out the Padres got exhausted of losing, as Wil Myers hit his 25th home run of the season and Clayton Richard, along with a solid bullpen performance, finally put in a start-to-finish consistent performance. The Dodgers' ace would have pitched Wednesday in a regular rotation, but Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts employed a six-man rotation this week to help rest tired arms.
