The Colorado Rockies took part in a pitchers' duel on Saturday night but came out on the wrong side of the score, losing to the Los Angeles Dodgers, 2-1. The Rockies managed to pick up just four hits in the losing effort.
Aaron Harang (2-2, 4.46 ERA) baffled the Rockies for eight innings, allowing the one run on a Tyler Colvin home run in the seventh inning. He did give up doubles to Wilin Rosario and Jonathan Herrera. Kenley Jansen picked up his third save of the season with a 1-2-3 inning, striking out Carlos Gonzalez and easily putting down Troy Tulowitzki and Todd Helton.
Juan Nicasio (ND, 4.65 ERA) allowed a Juan Uribe RBI single in the fifth inning for the only blemish over his seven innings. He struck out nine batters. Josh Outman was charged with the other run, though Matt Belisle was on the mound when the run scored. Outman started the bottom of the eighth inning and gave up an infield single to James Loney. Belisle came in and two batters later, Tony Gwynn Jr. singled in Loney for the winning run.
The Rockies (13-19, 5-9 away) close out this series on Sunday afternoon with Alex White on the mound.
