Rockies’ White takes down Dodgers 3-2
By Trey Scott | MLB.com
DENVER — Manager Jim Tracy said before Sunday’s game that a gut feeling told him starting pitcher Alex White “would throw his best game in a Rockies uniform.”
Tracy’s on-a-whim prophecy was spot-on. White allowed two runs — both of which came on a seventh-inning homer — on a career-low two hits, and the Rockies beat the Dodgers in the series rubber match, 3-2, at Coors Field.
For a while, it looked like White (2-3) wouldn’t allow any runs against a Dodgers team that leads the National League in most hitting categories. The rookie right-hander held the Dodgers hitless through the first 3 2/3 innings. He also pitched out of a one-out jam in the third by inducing consecutive pop flies after walking a pair. MORE>>>
