Pierre, Loretta Help Dodgers Sweep Rockies

By  | 

Juan Pierre and Mark Loretta hit RBI singles with two outs during a seventh-inning rally, and the Los Angeles Dodgers then held off the Colorado Rockies 8-6 Wednesday for a three-game sweep.

The Dodgers trailed 3-2 before scoring five times in the seventh, capped by James Loney's three-run double.

Colorado scored three runs in the ninth and had the bases loaded with two outs, but Jonathan Broxton retired pinch-hitter Brad Hawpe on a grounder to end it.
