Rockies, Moyer Lose To Dodgers 7-3
Jamie Moyer struck out seven, but gave up five runs in five innings as the Colorado Rockies (13-18) fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers (21-11) 7-3 last night at Dodger Stadium. Juan Nicasio is scheduled to take the mound for the Rockies when the divison rivals go at it again tonight at 7:10 MT (TV: Root Sports).
The Rockies needed a tremendous game just to keep up with the Dodgers' sizzling left-hander Chris Capuano (5-0), who limited the Rockies to one run -- Michael Cuddyer's fourth home run of the season, in the seventh -- on four hits in seven innings. The Cuddyer homer ended Capuano's scoreless streak at 24 2/3 innings, the longest such streak for the Dodgers since Chad Billingsley went 24 2/3 from July 21 to Aug. 5, 2010.
After knocking 13 hits in Wednesday afternoon's 6-2 victory over the Padres, the Rockies returned to their light-hitting road ways. The Rockies are 3-7 on the road and entered with a .226 road batting average, 13th in the National League.
