The Los Angeles Dodgers hit three home runs on Sunday and defeated the Colorado Rockies, 7-1, to complete a three-game sweep. With the win, the Dodgers kept pace with the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Wild Card race.

Andrew Brown was responsible for the lone Colorado run, as he hit a solo homer off Josh Beckett in the top of the fourth inning. The Rockies were offensively inept all weekend, collecting just 21 hits and one run. Jorge De La Rosa took the loss, allowing four runs on five hits in four innings. It was De La Rosa's third start of the season.

Matt Kemp was 2 for 3 with a homer and two RBIs to lead the Dodgers. Luis Cruz and A.J. Ellis were both 1 for 4 with two-run home runs. Beckett (2-3) gave up a run on six hits and three walks in six innings to earn the win. He struck out five.

With the loss, the Rockies fell to 62-97. The Dodgers improved to 84-75 and are two games back of the Cardinals for the NL's final Wild Card spot.
