(Colo)-Rockies Rally To Beat Dodgers Again
By BETH HARRIS - AP Sports Writer
LOS ANGELES (AP) - DJ LeMahieu doubled home the go-ahead run in the fifth inning and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Friday night, sending the stumbling NL West leaders to their eighth straight loss and 13th in 14 games.
The Dodgers blew a 4-1 lead in the 1st behind Yu Darvish, who was chased after giving up four runs in the fifth.
Darvish did break the record for reaching 1,000 strikeouts faster than any other pitcher in major league history...128 career games and 812 innings.
Rockies slugger Carlos Gonzalez was victim #1,00 in the 4th inning, but had hit a solo homer off the Japanese star in the first inning.
The Rockies took the lead with 4 runs in the 5th inning, hitting 4 doubles in the inning including back-to-back-to-back RBI doubles for the first time in team history
Greg Holland picked up his NL-best 37th save with his 5th consecutive hitless 9th inning against the heart of the Dodgers' order.
Los Angeles still owns the best record in baseball at 92-49, but has equaled its longest skid since May 2013.
The majors' best team at home this season has lost seven straight at Chavez Ravine for the first time since August 1999.
