Dodgers Vs. Rockies Game Recap: L.A. Blanked by Colorado 10-0

Josh Beckett's first start for the Dodgers didn't have the same Hollywood magic as teammate Adrian Gonzalez's home run debut. The newly acquired starting pitcher lasted only 5.2 innings, giving up seven hits and three runs in Los Angeles' 10-0 loss to the Colorado Rockies.

Beckett wasn't helped by his teammates in their four-hit performance against Rockies starter Jeff Francis. Francis gave up only three hits, and the bullpen gave up just one.

Shane Victorino and Matt Kemp accounted for two of the four Dodger hits, while the other big bats in Andre Ethier and the aforementioned Gonzalez went 0-for-3.

Luckily for the Dodgers, the NL West first place San Fransisco Giants lost 7-1 to the Atlanta Braves tonight, keeping L.A. at 2.5 games behind. Yet that win by Atlanta keeps the Dodgers at the same 2.5 games behind for one of the two Wild Card seats currently held by the Braves and St. Louis Cardinals.
