Rockies Vs. Dodgers Final Score: Josh Rutledge Leads Colorado To 3-1 Victory

Colorado Rockies second baseman Josh Rutledge continued the torrid start to his major league career by driving all three runs in the team's 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. As a result, the Rockies have won a series on the road against the Dodgers, a mighty feat. It was also the team's first series victory in the second half of the season.

Rutledge, hitting .356/.372/.700 with six home runs and 18 RBI through 90 at-bats, went 4-for-5 with three doubles. Two of those doubles accounted for the three RBI: an RBI double in the fifth and a two-run double in the seventh inning.

Eric Young Jr. collected three hits and scored two of the runs. Dodgers starter Aaron Harang (7-7, 3.80 ERA) allowed all three runs.

Alex White (ND, 5.75 ERA) threw four shutout innings and allowed just one hit, but he had trouble with the strike zone, walking five batters. Josh Roenicke improved to 4-0 with three innings of one-hit ball. Rex Brothers was charged with the Dodgers' one run, but it was Matt Belisle who gave up the Mark Ellis double that put the run across the plate.

The Rockies (40-68, 19-31 away) go for the sweep on Wednesday night.
