Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Even after fanning seven over four
scoreless frames, Colorado manager Jim Tracy stuck to his 75 pitch-limit game
plan and removed Drew Pomeranz from the contest.
But the Rockie relievers picked up right where Pomeranz left off and helped
Colorado blank the Los Angeles Dodgers, 2-0, in the opener of a three-game
Pomeranz threw 84 pitches, scattered three hits and walked three, Adam
Ottavino (3-1) allowed just a hit over three shutout frames, Matt Belisle gave
up a hit and a walk in a scoreless eighth and Rafael Betancourt fired a 1-2-3
ninth to notch his 18th save of the year.
Eric Young Jr. had three hits and scored both runs for the Rockies, who had
lost 16 of their last 20 games coming in.
Chris Capuano (10-8) struck out six and was charged with two runs on nine hits
and a walk in seven innings for the Dodgers, who had their three-game winning
streak snapped. He's 3-7 over his last 13 starts since beginning the year 7-1.
