The Colorado Rockies were unable to complete the sweep of their division rivals, falling 10-4 to the Los Angeles Dodgers on a windy Sunday afternoon. Tyler Anderson struggled for his second consecutive start, allowing five runs (all earned) on five hits, four walks, and three strikeouts over five innings. Logan Forsythe was the thorn in the Rockies’ side this afternoon, going 3-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored and an RBI.
Things started pretty poorly for Tyler Anderson and the Rockies. Forsythe led off the game with a double and, after a walk to Corey Seager, Justin Turner drove them both in with a double to left. The top of the lineup hurt Anderson again in the second when Forsythe drew a two-out walk and Seager homered to center to push the lead to 4-0 early.
Charlie Blackmon broke out of his early season doldrums with a two-run home run in the bottom of the third to cut the lead in half, but Anderson gave back another in the top of the fourth on a—you guessed it—Logan Forsythe RBI single. An RBI single from Gerrardo Parra in the bottom of the fifth followed by a sac fly from Carlos Gonzalez made it a 5-4 ballgame, but that was as close as the Rockies would get. The Dodgers would add one run in the sixth, three in the seventh, and one in the ninth to put things well out of reach.
The Rockies were able to tack on a couple runs in the bottom of the ninth on super closer Kenley Jansen, as DJ LeMahieu, who was initially given the day off, hit an RBI triple and scored on a groundout. Unfortunately, with one on and two out, Cargo grounded out to end the game.
