DENVER (AP) — Sam Hilliard lined a three-run homer, C.J. Cron had four hits and the Colorado Rockies broke a five-game skid at Coors Field by beating the NL West title-chasing Los Angeles Dodgers 10-5.
The Dodgers may be in danger of losing more ground to division-leading San Francisco. They entered the day a game behind the Giants, who played late in San Diego.
This had all the makings of a pitchers’ duel with All-Stars Walker Buehler and Germán Márquez on the mound
Instead, it was anything but, as the teams combined for 19 hits, including three homers and even a two-run double from Márquez that chased his counterpart from the game.
