Dramatic turnaround

Helton went yard wth a man aboard off Scott Proctor in the eighth, giving the Rox the lead and putting the Dodgers in a position where it looks like they will now have gone a full month without winning a series. That decisive inning came immediately after the bottom of the seventh when Matt Kemp came to the plate with runners on the corners and two outs. Although Juan Pierre had just walked on five pitches against Ramon Ortiz, Kemp apparently thought it would be a good idea to swing at the first pitch from Ortiz. He popped it up, of course, and Matt Holliday hauled it in in shallow left, ending the inning. Dodgers are 1 for 7 w/RISP. … Rockies 3, Dodgers 2, bottom 8
