The Los Angeles Dodgers continued their red-hot play on Saturday, beating the Colorado Rockies on a Matt Kemp walk-off home run in the 11th inning. It was the third walk-off home run for Kemp this season, and continued a bizarre week for the Dodgers.
Entering this week the Dodgers had just one win when trailing after eight innings. Now they have three. The Dodgers won Monday in St. Louis with a two-run ninth inning, and they haven't lost since. On Saturday, the Dodgers trailed 6-5 in the ninth inning when James Loney took Rafael Betancourt deep to tie the game.
Loney has three home runs in his last six games, including home runs in back-to-back home games for the first time since September 11-12, 2007. This season, Loney has hit six of his eight home runs against the Rockies. Loney has 15 hits in his last 26 at-bats.
Troy Tulowitzki had two home runs for Colorado, including a two-run shot that gave the Rockies the lead in the seventh inning. Carlos Gonzalez had four hits as well, extending his hitting streak to 14 games, and he has driven in a run in 11 straight contests, trying a Colorado franchise record.
Nathan Eovaldi pitches for the Dodgers as they go for the sweep on Sunday, facing Jhoulys Chacin for Colorado.
