Dodgers vs. Rockies game recap: Dodgers keep rolling with 3rd straight win

The Los Angeles Dodgers knocked off the Colorado Rockies 8-0 on Friday, picking up their third straight win. Los Angeles remains three games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second National League Wild Card spot as the Cardinals also won on Friday.

After going through a bit of an offensive slump, the Dodgers' offense has come alive recently Los Angeles has now scored eight runs in each of its last three games. The Dodgers got the scoring started early with four runs in the second inning including a three-run Shane Victorino home run. They tacked on one more run in the fourth inning then extended their lead with three more in the eighth inning.

The run support was more than enough for Clayton Kershaw who pitched eight dominating innings. Kershaw allowed just five hits while striking out 10. Kershaw has now allowed two or less earned runs in 12 of his last 14 starts. He lowed his season ERA to a NL best 2.58.

The series will continue on Saturday with first pitch scheduled for 6:10 p.m. PT
