(Colo.)- Rockies Rout Kershaw, Dodgers 9-1; LA Drops 7th In Row
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Nolan Arenado hit a three-run homer off a laboring Clayton Kershaw and the Colorado Rockies beat the Dodgers 9-1 on Thursday night, sending Los Angeles to its seventh straight defeat and 12th in 13 games.
The NL West leaders haven't lost that many since May 2013, when they dropped eight in a row. Their 92-48 record is still baseball's best, but they continue to founder with the playoffs approaching.
Coming off a three-game sweep by Arizona, the Dodgers were hopeful Kershaw (16-3) could stop the slide like he did last week when he snapped their five-game skid with a 1-0 victory at San Diego.
nstead, he got yanked early.
The Rockies pounded out 16 hits and took full advantage of the Dodgers' faltering bullpen that surrendered five runs. Fans booed Josh Ravin when he gave up back-to-back bases-loaded walks in the seventh as the Rockies batted around.
Colorado's Jon Gray (7-4) allowed one run and four hits in six innings, struck out three and walked two.
