The Rockies scored in the first inning in three of the four games in the series.

Roberts blamed most of the damage to Darvish on soft contact by the Rockies.

The majors' best team this season has lost eight in a row at Chavez Ravine for the first time in 30 years.

But the Dodgers have lost eight in a row and 13 of their last 14.

No other team has performed so poorly over the past two weeks. He also has done well for the Dodgers in the postseason, albeit only three starts.

"It's bad right now", Kershaw said. Once again, this pick is only as a fade from the Rockies based on the value.

Darvish had a chance to make a difference Friday, but he couldn't get out of the fifth inning.

The 1916 New York Giants had a string of 26 wins and one tie. He gave up four earned runs while not being able to get the final out of the fourth inning. And Greg Holland, after allowing a leadoff home run to Logan Forsythe, retired the next three batters for his 39th save.

The Rockies pegged Hill for two runs on four hits over five innings.

The Rockies took a 2-0 lead into the eighth and then broke it open with five runs. Tommy Lasorda, the Hall of Fame manager, stopped by the clubhouse to offer his support. Parra's run-scoring hit was a soft drive that center fielder Taylor nearly caught with a headlong dive. "I think if you look at tonight, there were a couple of opportunity situations where we didn't capitalize". "Just a big win, coming to L.A. after a tough loss last night, getting in late and just winning like that".

Henry Clay product Walker Buehler made his major league debut on Thursday, pitching two scoreless innings in the Dodgers' 9-1 loss to Colorado. Mark Reynolds dove to his right to stop the grounder and threw to Story at second. LHP Scott Kazmir (left hip strain) will pitch three innings of relief for Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday, but won't rejoin the Dodgers this year.

Anderson was available to pitch behind Tyler Chatwood on Sunday, what would have been his first appearance since June 25, but he was not needed. "We want to win".

The Dodgers moved into Dodger Stadium in 1962, making it the third-oldest ballpark in baseball. They won a sixth game in their past seven, handing the home team their 10th consecutive loss.

Cleveland Indians 11 Chicago White Sox 2: The 15th consecutive win for the Indians, a franchise record.

Justin Turner's two-run homer highlighted a four-run first that gave the Dodgers a 4-1 lead.

"We can put some runs on the board, there's no doubt about it", Gonzalez said. "That gives us confidence to keep pushing and don't give up". Gerardo Parra went 3-for-5 with two runs and an RBI.

Then the eighth inning blew up.

In Arlington, Texas, Martin Perez won his seventh straight start after the Rangers rallied from an early four-run deficit and beat the AL wild card-leading Yankees. "As passionate as our fans are, as knowledgeable, I think it's irresponsible. That's something that really pissed me off tonight".

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Freeland throws to the plate against the Arizona Diamondbacks during the first inning of a baseball game Friday, Sept. 1, 2017, in Denver.

The Diamondbacks claimed their first season series win over the Dodgers since 2013.
