DENVER (CBSLA.com) — This was not Mike Bolsinger’s finest hour.
The Dodgers right-hander could only get through four innings on Friday, surrendering seven runs and allowing three home runs.
Adrian Gonzalez started off the scoring by driving in Jimmy Rollins in the 1st inning.
The Rockies answered in the bottom half of the 1st inning, when Corey Dickerson drove in Carlos Gonzalez on an RBI single.
The Rockies would go on to score three runs in the 3rd inning, thanks to a Dickerson RBI double, an error by Adrian Gonzalez, and a Rafael Ynoa RBI triple.
With the score at 4-1, the Rockies weren’t done yet.
Charlie Blackmon, Carlos Gonzalez, and Corey Dickerson all hit solo home runs in the bottom half of the fourth inning off of Bolsinger, to give the Rockies a 7-1 lead.
After reaching base on a single, Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier scored on a wild pitch in the 6th inning, making the score 7-2.
Howie Kendrick singled in the 7th inning to drive in two runs, narrowing the Rockies lead to 7-4.
With men on second and third and two outs, Carl Crawford, representing the tying run, grounded out to first base to end the inning.
John Axford pitched the 9th for the Rockies, earning his 25th save of 2015.
The Dodgers ended up falling to the Rockies, 7-4, keeping their magic number at 3.
The magic number could go down to 2 with a Giants loss tonight in Oakland.
