The Los Angeles Dodgers picked up a win at Colorado Field, knocking off the Colorado Rockies, 6-4. Starting pitcher Alex Wood played a key role in the triumph, but it was Los Angeles reliever Zach McAllister who picked up the win, giving him a record at 1-0. Wes Parsons absorbed the loss for Colorado. Meanwhile, Adam Kolarek is apparently the closer now, as he picked up his second save of the series and season.
Tyler White — still not DFA’d — drove in one run for Los Angeles. The 29-year-old first baseman had a key at-bat in the top of the tenth. With one out and runners on 2nd and 3rd, he broke a 4-4 tie with a run-scoring sacrifice fly off Parsons. It was his second RBI of the season.
“We didn’t go down without a fight,” said Colorado manager Bud Black. Poor (not really, he’s plenty comfortable, financially) Buddy Black.
Meanwhile, Wood turned in one of his best efforts of the season: 6 2/3 IP, 6 H, 2 R/ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 1 HR, 99 pitches, 60 strikes. His season ERA is plummeting, as it’s down to 6.47. Also, it wouldn’t be an OOTP sim without Caleb Ferguson not only pitching, but also giving up a run. All four of his outs recorded, however, did come via the strikeout.
