DODGERS 7, ROCKIES 1
Today was Fan Appreciation Day, and the Dodgers thought it was only appropriate that the fans in the bleachers get some free baseballs to take home. Matt Kemp, two-run homer in the fourth. Luis Cruuuuuuz, two-run homer, also in the fourth. A.J. Ellis, two-run homer in the sixth. (Oh yeah, and Hanley had an RBI single, too.) Dodgers complete the sweep of the Rockies AND take the season series from them.
The Cardinals weren't feeling quite as generous, as they beat Washington and reduced the Dodgers' tragic number to 2. We're still going to need a miracle and a half to get into the WC game, but you can't say the Dodgers aren't doing their part.
The Giants come in to town tomorrow for a series that's not quite as important as it once could have been, but it's still going to be intense.
