DENVER (AP)—Ted Lilly scattered four hits over eight innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers prevented Ubaldo Jimenez from getting his 20th win with a 3-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.

Casey Blake went 3 for 4 with two doubles, two RBIs and scored Los Angeles’ other run as the Dodgers put the Rockies on the brink of elimination.

The reeling Rockies fell five games behind idle San Francisco in the NL West with just six games remaining. The Rockies have lost seven of eight since pulling within a game of the divisional lead on Sept. 18.

Jimenez (19-8) has one more start, at St. Louis next weekend, to try to become the franchise’s first 20-game winner.
