Dodgers Vs. Rockies Final Score: Colorado Crushes Los Angeles, 13-3

The Colorado Rockies' offensive onslaught continued into Friday night with a 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Rockies scored 10 of the 13 runs in the fifth inning or later.

The scoring started in the second inning when Wilin Rosario attempted to steal second base while Michael Cuddyer was on third base. A throwing error by catcher Matt Treanor allowed both of them to score.

The Dodgers didn't score their first run until after Josh Outman, limited to around 50 pitches before the game started, left following 55 pitches in 3.1 innings. Outman allowed just two hits, walked one and struck out five. His last strikeout was against Andre Ethier, allowing him to exit the game on a high note. Later in the fourth inning, Carlos Torres allowed a Scott Van Slyke double and followed that up with an Alex Castellanos RBI triple, putting the Dodgers on the board.

Jordan Pacheco and Carlos Gonzalez drove in runs over the next two innings for a 4-1 lead, but Castellanos answered with a sacrifice fly in the top of the sixth to make it a 4-2 game. The bottom of the sixth inning saw the Rockies' bats start to waken up.

Wilin Rosario hit his eighth home run of the season, a two-run shot, for a 6-2 lead. Dexter Fowler picked up the first of two RBI on a single in the sixth before Marco Scutaro drove him in during the next at-bat. In the seventh inning, Rosario, DJ LeMahieu and Fowler drove in three more runs.

The Rockies concluded the scoring in the eighth inning with back-to-back home runs by Chris Nelson (1) and Michael Cuddyer (7).

Adam Ottavino (1-0, 0.75 ERA) took the victory while Dodgers starter Chris Capuano (7-2) went down in defeat by allowing the first seven runs. Jamey Wright gave up four more runs and Josh Lindblom surrendered the other two runs.

The Rockies (22-29, 14-14 home) are on a five-game winning streak and have Juan Nicasio on the mound for Saturday's game.
