Rockies vs. Dodgers game recap: Colorado loses second straight, 3-0

The Colorado Rockies lost their second straight to the Dodgers, falling on Saturday night 3-0.

Starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood lasted just four innings, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out four. The Dodgers would get on the board in the bottom of the fourth thanks to a Matt Kemp home run and a A.J. Ellis RBI single. Kemp would homer again in the eighth inning of Josh Roenicke.

The Rockies managed just seven hits in the game, with no batters recording multiple hits. Dodgers starting pitcher Joe Blanton struck out six in six innings, and the Rockies were unable to solve three Los Angeles relievers the rest of the way.

Colorado had won four in a row coming into the weekend series against Los Angeles, but have now lost 19 games in the month of September. With just four games remaining in the season, the Rockies will look to avoid a sweep on Sunday against the Dodgers in the final game of the series. First pitch is set for 2:10 p.m. MT.
