Dodgers 15, Rockies 6: Another big night at the plate powers Dodgers to 37th win

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Home runs by Bellinger, Betts, and Lux prove too much for Rockies to overcome It was a high-scoring affair at Coors Field tonight with the Dodgers maintaining a lead that was too big for the Rockies to catch up. Cody Bellinger got the scoring started early following a walk to Max Muncy with a two-run home run to center field. Three batters later, Gavin Lux smashed a 453-foot bomb to right field putting the Dodgers up 4-0. Josh Fuentes would follow up with a home run of his own in the bottom of the second putting the Rockies within one run at 4-3, but it’s the...

If they can turn it around, they’ll need to get it going tonight against the division rival Dodgers. Rookie right-hander Ryan Castellani will get the nod at starting pitcher. Castellani has fared decently in his rookie campaign and...
