Dodgers Recover To Beat Rockies 7-5 In 10 Innings
DENVER (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers recovered from a ninth-inning blown save and scored two runs off Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt in the top of the 10th to beat slumping Colorado 7-5 Friday night.
Carl Crawford scored from third on Luis Cruz’s hard comebacker that bounced off the back leg of Betancourt (1-3) and dribbled toward the third base side, and Juan Uribe followed with a run-scoring single.
Brandon League (1-2) picked up the win despite allowing Todd Helton’s two-run homer with one out that tied the game at 5 in the ninth.
Ronald Belisario pitched a perfect 10th for his first save since Aug. 29, 2012, also at Colorado.
