Rockies 7, Dodgers 4

This could have been an unforgettable victory, a game that would have moved the Dodgers within 1 1/2 games of the lead in the wild card and given their fans a reason to pay attention again. It also would have assured them their first series win in a month. Instead, it was none of that, because the Dodgers ran themselves out of a 10th-inning rally, and Rockies relievers Jeremy Affeldt, Matt Herges and Manny Corpas then combined to set down the Dodgers’ final 11 batters in a row. The Rockies finally broke through with three runs in the 14th in Roberto Hernandez’s second inning of work. Dodgers slip to 63-60 and back into fourth place in the NL West, a season-worst 7 1/2 games behind the division-leading D-backs.
