Rockies 2, Dodgers 0

By  | 

The Colorado Rockies have moved closer to the NL West lead by earning their team-record 10th straight win, a 2-0 shutout of the Los Angeles Dodgers last night.

Josh Fogg combined with three relievers on an eight-hitter as the Rockies climbed within two games of first-place Arizona while staying a game off the wild-card lead.

Both runs came in the third inning on RBI singles by Kaz Matsui and Matt Holliday. Matsui had been in a 2-for-19 slump before helping Colorado move a team-record 14 games over .500.

Holliday leads the National League with 132 runs batted in.

Derek Lowe dropped to 12-and-14 despite holding Colorado to five hits while striking out seven in seven innings.
