Dodgers Vs. Rockies Final Score: Alex White Shuts Down L.A. 3-2

The Los Angeles Dodgers managed just three hits on Sunday in their series finale against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field, losing 3-2 for their sixth loss in their last seven games. Alex White pitched into the seventh inning for the Rockies for his second win of the season.

Nathan Eovaldi allowed three runs, including two earned runs, in suffering his second loss in as many starts. Eovaldi was chased in the sixth inning with a pair of run scoring hits by Todd Helton and Jordan Pacheco, turning a 1-0 Rockies' lead into a 3-0 advantage.

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis continued his storybook season with a two-run home run in the seventh to pull the Dodgers within one, but after that the Dodgers fell just short. Later in the seventh, with two runners on, Alex Castellanos hit a ball that was close to becoming a game-tying single but second baseman DJ LeMahieu made a diving grab to end the rally.

In the ninth, down a run, both Ellis and Tony Gwynn Jr. flew out to the warning track, falling short of game-tying home runs.

The Dodgers take their struggling road show to Philadelphia, where on Monday they will begin a four-game series against the Phillies.

Dodgers Vs. Rockies Starting Lineups: Dee Gordon Back At Leadoff

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a series win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday afternoon as the two divisional foes do battle at Coors Field in Denver. The Dodgers are 17-8 against the National League West this season, and have won five of their first six series of three games or more, with the only loss coming in Coors Field one month ago.

Nathan Eovaldi gets the call for the Dodgers, making his second start since getting called up from Double A on Tuesday. Alex White, whom the Dodgers beat on April 13 in Los Angeles, gets the call for the Rockies.

Colorado, which used seven relievers to pitch 13 innings over the last two days, called up Guillemo Moscoso from Triple A Colorado Springs before Sunday's series finale, giving them some bullpen help. Juan Nicasio, who left in the second inning Saturday with a left knee strain, was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Rockies.

Here are Sunday's starting lineups, which include Dee Gordon back at the leadoff spot for the first time since May 18:

Dodgers Vs. Rockies Final Score: Aaron Harang Leads L.A. To 6-2 Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers snapped out of their funk on Saturday in a big way. Their offense, which scored just 11 runs in their last five games, all losses, broke out for six runs. Aaron Harang pitched six strong innings, allowing just one run, ending a string of five straight losses by the starting staff as the Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 6-2 at Coors Field.

The Dodgers scored one in the first inning for their first lead since Wednesday, then added two more runs in the second. Harang made it hold up with six strikeouts in his six innings, allowing just one run on four hits and three walks.

The key moment in the game came in the bottom of the fifth inning, when the Rockies loaded the bases off Harang, with the Dodgers leading 4-1. Harang regrouped and got Carlos Gonzalez to pop out and Michael Cuddyer to ground out to end the threat.

Elian Herrera had two hits, including a double, and drove in two runs for the Dodgers, and Andre Ethier did the same. Ethier leads the National League with 46 RBI and is tied for second in the lea with 18 doubles.

Bobby Abreu added a solo home run in the sixth inning, his first home run as a Dodger.

Nathan Eovaldi gets the start on Sunday for the Dodgers, who go for the series win against Alex White and Colorado.
