Dodgers Vs. Rockies Final Score: Four Colorado Pitchers Combine For Shutout, 2-0

Four pitchers combined to shutout the Dodgers on Monday night, as the Rockies walked away with a 2-0 victory in the first game of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers remain a half-game behind San Francisco in the National League West.

The Rockies have been limiting the pitch counts for their starters for over a month, experimenting with a four-man rotation. As such, Drew Pomeranz was pulled after striking out seven in his four shutout innings. Relief pitcher Adam Ottavino followed with three scoreless innings of his own.

Chris Capuano pitched seven strong innings for the Dodgers, allowing two runs on nine hits, with a walk and six strikeouts. But he suffered the loss, his fifth in six games, thanks to the lack of run support.

The Rockies scored single runs in the first and third innings, both scored by Eric Young Jr. after he singled. Carlos Gonzalez hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning to give Colorado a 1-0 lead, and Jordan Pacheco singled in young in the third to give the Rockies a 2-0 advantage.

The Dodgers had the tying runs in base in the seventh and eighth innings but could not draw closer.

Aaron Harang gets the call on Tuesday for the Dodgers, starting against Alex White for Colorado.
