DENVER (AP) – Dee Gordon tripled twice among his three hits and drove in three runs as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Colorado 7-2 on Friday night, handing the Rockies their eighth straight defeat.
Hanley Ramirez had two hits and stole two bases, and Justin Turner also had two of Los Angeles’ 12 hits.
The Dodgers had lost six of eight but got healthy against the struggling Rockies. Hyun-Jin Ryu cruised through the first five innings before Drew Stubbs hit a solo homer with one out in the sixth.
Ryu (7-2) allowed two runs and eight hits over six innings.
Stubbs and Troy Tulowitzki had two hits each for the slumping Rockies, who lost again in starter Eddie Butler’s major league debut.
