Rockies Vs. Dodgers Final Score: Chris Capuano Shuts Down Colorado For 7-3 Victory

The Colorado Rockies lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, 7-3, ending the brief respite the team had following Wednesday's 6-2 victory over the San Diego Padres. Rockies hitters had nothing going against Dodgers starter Chris Capuano while Rockies starter Jamie Moyer labored through five innings.

Capuano (5-0, 2.06 ERA) was mostly untouchable, allowing just a Michael Cuddyer home run in the seventh inning. He gave up four hits in total, walked none and struck out three. The Rockies did get a couple of runs in the ninth inning on a Cudyer sacrifice fly and Dexter Fowler triple, but that was it.

Moyer (1-3, 4.66 ERA) allowed the first five Los Angeles runs, including three driven in by former Rockie infielder Mark Ellis (solo home run and two-run double). Using 95 pitches, Moyer did wind up striking out seven batters. Carlos Torres allowed a seventh-inning home run to Andre Ethier while Esmil Rogers followed in the next inning by surrendering a lead-off home run to Juan Uribe.

The Rockies (13-18, 5-8 away) will have Juan Nicasio on the mound for Saturday evening's game.
