The Dodgers fell to the Rockies by a score of 5-4 tonight, leaving them at 13-11 on the year. Josh Beckett was on the hill for the Dodgers and he turned in a solid eight innings of work, giving up two runs on two homers but striking out six and not allowing a walk.
That, of course, earned him head slaps.
Puig followed with a single to knot the game at two.
After that, Beckett, Lyles, and the relief corps traded doughnuts on the scoreboard for seven innings of work. Unfortunately, Jamey Wright, J.P. Howell, and Brandon League combined for a dumpster fire of an 11th inning, giving up three runs.
Fortunately, LaTroy Hawkins was closing and Hanley Ramirez led off the inning with a lined double to left and A-Gon followed that with a booming homer to right, cutting the lead to one. Of course, like prophet and cutting-edge baseball mind Steve Lyons has always said, the homer killed the rally.
