James Loney singled home the winning run in the 10th inning and the L.A. Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the NL champion Colorado Rockies with a 3-2 victory.
It's the first three-game winning streak of the season for the Dodgers under new manager Joe Torre, who used his 24th different lineup in 25 games.
It was the fifth extra-inning game this season for the Rockies, including a 22-inning win at San Diego on April 17th and a 13-inning loss to the Dodgers on Friday night.
Manny Corpas walked Rafael Furcal and pinch-hitter Mark Sweeney to open the 10th. Both runners advanced on Matt Kemp's sacrifice bunt, and Loney grounded a 1-0 pitch through the right side of the infield to end it. Corpas is 0-and-2 with the loss.
Joe Beimel got the win after stranding runners at second and third in the top of the 10th when Troy Tulowitzki fouled out to first base. He's 1-and-0.
