Dodgers Hammer Rockies 14-2

By  | 

Matt Kemp hit a grand slam and a solo homer to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 14-2 on Sunday for their eighth straight win.

Andre Ethier and Orlando Hudson each drove in three runs for Los Angeles, which has won its first six home games for the first time since the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers started out 8-0 at Ebbets Field in Jackie Robinson's rookie year.

The defending NL West champions are 29-9 at Chavez Ravine since last year's All-Star break, the best record in the majors during that stretch. During this homestand they outscored their opponents 50-17, recording 77 hits, 11 home runs and 31 walks while batting a collective .367.
