Fowler lifts Rockies to win in 10th

Associated Press  |  Last updated June 01, 2013
Dexter Fowler's RBI single down the first base line in the 10th inning lifted the Colorado Rockies past the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6 on Saturday. The Rockies got their fourth win this season in their last at-bat, one night after losing to the Dodgers in extra innings. Yorvit Torrealba's two-out single off Matt Guerrier (1-2) started the rally. Pinch-hitter Wilin Rosario followed with an infield single, narrowly beating the throw to first. Fowler then lined a hard grounder that shot past first base into right field, driving in Torrealba with the winning run and snapping the Rockies' three-game losing streak. Matt Belisle (3-2) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory. The loss was compounded for the Dodgers because of another injury, this time to Carl Crawford. He left in the third inning after suffering a left hamstring cramp while legging out his second double in two at-bats. Crawford's absence for any extended period of time would tough for the Dodgers, whose disabled list already is swelled with some of the team's best players, from Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez to Josh Beckett and Chad Billingsley, among others. The Rockies tied the score at 6-6 in the seventh when Michael Cuddyer connected off Ronald Belisario for his ninth homer of the season, a two-run shot that bounced off the top of the wall in right-center before dropping on the other side. Trailing 3-1, the Rockies used a three-run fifth, highlighted by Carlos Gonzalez's 14th home run of the season, to go up 4-3. The Dodgers regained the lead in the sixth. Skip Schumaker and Nick Punto hit consecutive singles and Tim Federowicz, who hit his first major league home run in the third, followed with a two-run double to center for a 5-4 lead. In the bottom of the sixth, Nolan Arenado led off with a single. Torrealba hit a low line drive that Zack Greinke appeared to snag before his glove hit the base of the mound and then threw to first to double off Arenado, who had advanced to second. Umpires ruled that the ball hit the ground before Greinke caught it and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was ejected for the first time this season by first base umpire Brian Knight after a persistent, heated argument over the call. Greinke left with one out in the sixth after walking pinch-hitter Jordan Pacheco. Paco Rodriguez relieved and retired the next two batters, rendering the umpire's decision moot as the Rockies stranded both base runners in the inning. Skip Schumaker's RBI single in the seventh boosted the Dodgers lead to two runs. In the second, the Rockies got three consecutive hits off Greinke, the last an RBI double by Arenado. Torrealba walked before Greinke induced an inning-ending double-play grounder from Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin, who allowed five runs on nine hits in six innings. Chacin is still seeking his first win since April 19. NOTES: Cuddyer has hit safely in each of his eight starts since being activated from the disabled list and rejoining the Rockies on May 24. ... Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis, who hasn't played since suffering an oblique strain Wednesday, took swings off a tee prior to the game. ... Dodgers reliever J.P. Howell struck out the side in the eighth.
