Dodgers Vs. Rockies Final Score: Matt Kemp, Shane Victorino Lead L.A. To 6-4 Win

Matt Kemp homered and Shane Victorino had three hits and three runs scored, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Colorado Rockies 6-4 on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. The win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Dodgers, who remained a game and a half behind San Francisco in the National League West.

Kemp homered in the first inning off Jeff Francis, his 17th home run of the season and ninth off of left-handed pitching. The three-run shot gave the Dodgers a 3-2 lead.

The Rockies tied the game in the fourth inning, but the Dodgers answered back with a run in the fifth and two more in the sixth. Victorino scored the go-ahead run on a bases loaded walk by Hanley Ramirez, then drove in a run in the sixth and scored another.

Chad Billingsley allowed four runs in 6 1/3 innings for his fourth consecutive victory.

Eric Young Jr. led off the game with an inside-the-park home run to center field, a ball that bounced off the wall away from Kemp. Young also added a single in the seventh inning to cut the Dodgers' lead to 6-4, and completed a very productive series for the speedy outfielder. Young had eight hits and a walk in the three games, and scored five runs.
