The game lasted only two hours, eight minutes, as starters Jorge De La Rosa and Alex Wood conspired to give their bullpens, who saw a lot of work last night, a night off, as they each pitched eight innings. De La Rosa allowed just two runs on six hits in his eight innings, walking one and striking out five. As there was no bottom of the ninth, the Rockies bullpen got a full night off after a dozen relievers pitched on Tuesday.
Wood was even better, allowing just a single to Kyle Parker in his eight innings with no walks and five strikeouts. Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen allowed the Rockies' second hit of the night, a two-out single to Charlie Blackmon, en route to earning his 32nd save of the season.
The Dodgers got on the board in the bottom of the second when A.J. Ellis led the inning off with a solo home run, his sixth of the season, to give Los Angeles a 1-0 lead. The Dodgers' second run came on an RBI single in the sixth inning by Corey Seager that scored Austin Barnes, who led off the inning with a double.
After an off day on Thursday, the Rockies return home for their final homestand, which kicks off Friday against the Padres as Chad Bettis takes on Ian Kennedy.
