National League Game Summary - Colorado at Los Angeles



(Friday, July 12th)

Final Score: Colorado 3, Los Angeles 0

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Juan Nicasio spun seven shutout innings as the Colorado Rockies blanked the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-0, in the second of a four-game set at Dodger Stadium.

Nicasio (5-4), who was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs prior to the game, scattered three hits and one walk while striking out three to earn his first big league win since May 19.

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with an RBI and Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario each drove in a run for the Rockies, winners in three of their last five. Rafael Betancourt stranded a runner in the ninth and notched his 14th save of the season.

Clayton Kershaw (8-6) was tagged with the loss after giving up three runs on six hits with 10 strikeouts over seven frames.

Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig left the game in the fourth inning with an apparent left hip injury.

Puig exited Thursday's 6-1 win in the eighth inning after experiencing discomfort in his hip, which he apparently injured after colliding with the right-field fence at Coors Field on July 3. He went 0-for-2 before leaving.

The Rockies jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Dexter Fowler and LeMahieu opened the game with back-to-back singles to put runners on the corners with no outs. After Carlos Gonzalez struck out, Tulowitzki lifted a sacrifice fly to center to score Fowler. Rosario followed with an RBI single to center to give Colorado a two-run edge.

The Rockies tacked on another run in the fifth. Nolan Arenado worked a leadoff walk then moved to second on a sacrifice bunt. After Fowler struck out, LeMahieu laced a single to right field to plate Arenado.

Los Angeles put the leadoff runner on in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings, but were unable to break through.

After Andre Ethier opened the seventh with a single, Nicasio retired the next three hitters in order. Nick Punto walked in the eighth, but Jerry Hairston grounded into a double play and reliever Rex Brothers caught Scott Van Slyke looking to get out of the frame.

Adrian Gonzalez ripped a single in the ninth. After Betancourt was able to get the next two hitters to fly out, Gonzalez took second on a defensive indifference before moving to third on a wild pitch, but Betancourt was able to get A.J. Ellis to fly out to center to end the game.
