It was another case of too little, too late — but too little is better than nothing. Which is a step in the right direction, I guess. Ubaldo Jimenez shut down the Dodgers for six innings and Troy Tulowitzki hit a back-breaking two-run homer off Ronald Belisario in the seventh. Down 4-1, the Dodgers actually put together a rally against the Rockies' bullpen, scoring two runs on a Russell Martin homer and an Andre Ethier RBI single. But 13 Ks — including four each by Manny Ramirez and Casey Blake — were too much, and the Rockies held on to win, giving the Dodgers just two more chances not to fall victim to the largest deficit (15 1/2 games) overcome in MLB history. See y'all tomorrow!
UPDATE: Oh yeah, Hiroki Kuroda's out for the NLDS. Whoopee.
