Kershaw Gives Up 2 Homers To Rockies, Dodgers Lose 3-0

DENVER (AP) — Jhoulys Chacin scattered five hits over seven sharp innings and Troy Tulowitzki broke out of a hitting funk with a solo homer, helping the Colorado Rockies to a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.

Chacin (1-0) struck out four in his season debut as the hard-throwing righty outdueled Clayton Kershaw (1-1), who lasted six innings and allowed three runs.

The left-handed Kershaw also gave up homers to Tulowitzki and Chris Iannetta, something he rarely does. Kershaw allowed just 0.57 homers per nine innings last season, one of the lowest marks in the NL.

Rafael Betancourt pitched a perfect eighth and Huston Street closed out the ninth for his second save in as many chances.
