Dodgers 3, Rockies 2

Loney singled through the right side with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 10th, and that was that. The Dodgers had their first series sweep of the season, as well as their first three-game winning streak, and they are actually on a little bit of a hot streak now, having won five of their past seven. They’ll travel tomorrow, the start a three-gamer with the Marlins on Tuesday night at Joe Robbie/Pro Player/Dolphin/whateverthehecktheyarecallingitthesedays Stadium. … Loaiza blew a 2-0 lead in the fifth and was gone, but really, he gave the Dodgers everything they could have asked for considering they have shuffled him in and out of the rotation all season. The bullpen came up huge, especially Cory Wade, who retired six of seven in his third big-league appearance. Broxton pitched out of a huge jam after he walked the leadoff man in the eighth and Hu committed what could have been a costly throwing error, and Saito and Beimel got into and out of trouble in the eighth and ninth, as well. … Dodgers go to 12-13 and now have a comfortable 1 1/2-game lead over the third-place Giants, but they still trail the Snakes by six. … I’ll try to post tomorrow, but it takes pretty much a full day to get from here to Fort Lauderdale, so I might not. And thanks to Doug Padilla for covering the series for me. I was ready for a weekend off, and even though I was at all three games working on this blog and a few other things, it was refreshing not to have to worry about deadlines and the like. Have a good Sunday evening, everyone.
