Rockies 3, Dodgers 2

The Colorado Rockies (23-30) have won six of their last seven, and took 2 out of 3 from the National League West leading Los Angeles Dodgers (33-21), including yesterday afternoon’s 3-2 win over LA in Denver. The Rockies start a three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks (25-29) tonight at 7:40 MT at Chase Field (TV: Root Sports).

Rockies starter Alex White held the Dodgers to two hits and two runs in 6 2/3 innings of the 3-2 victory at Coors Field to complete a 6-1 homestand.

The first couple of games of Colorado’s homestand, victories over the Astros, actually didn’t offer much pitching confidence. Juan Nicasio — now on the disabled list with a left knee strain — and White combined to give up 12 runs, 11 earned, in 11 innings of a double-header sweep. That type of pitching results in a loss more often than not.

Left-hander Christian Friedrich, who will start tonight’s opener of three in Arizona, has pitched well in four of his five starts since being called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs — where he and White began the year in the rotation. Jeremy Guthrie is coming off his first home win and will bring a 2-0 road record into his start Tuesday. Lefty Josh Outman pitched well enough as a reliever to earn a rotation shot.

Official: Sunday’s Box Score.

Colorado didn’t score big Sunday, but it did enough. Dexter Fowler extended his hit streak to eight games with a first-inning single, stole second, took third on an Ellis passed ball and scored on Marco Scutaro’s groundout. Eovaldi kept the Rockies off the board again until Todd Helton’s RBI single and Jordan Pacheco’s RBI double in the sixth.

The Rockies go to Arizona with active hit streaks by Helton (nine games), Fowler, Carlos Gonzalez (eight games), Pacheco (six games, and hits in 17 of his last 18) and Wilin Rosario (six games).
