DENVER (AP) — Max Muncy homered to start the 10th inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the Colorado Rockies 7-5 to remain in the thick of the NL West chase.

Muncy drilled a slider from Lucas Gilbreath to deep center, setting off a roar from the Dodgers faithful scattered throughout Coors Field. It also scored Justin Turner, who began the inning at second base.

Trea Turner tied the game in the ninth with a two-out RBI single. The Dodgers needed the win as they try to catch San Francisco for their ninth straight NL West crown.
