Rockies score three in 11th, hold off Dodgers wire reports

LOS ANGELES -- Charlie Blackmon hit an RBI single in the 11th inning and the Colorado Rockies got home runs from Troy Tulowitzki and Corey Dickerson to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Friday night.

Adam Ottavino took over in the eighth for Rockies starter Jordan Lyles as a steady drizzle sent many in the crowd of 44,866 for cover. Ottavino retired the side in order before Boone Logan struck out his first two batters in the ninth - including Matt Kemp, who was ejected by umpire Angel Hernandez for arguing a called third strike.

It was Kemp's seventh career ejection and the Dodgers' first this season.

The drizzle had turned into a downpour by the 10th. Brandon Barnes pinch-hit for reliever Rex Brothers (2-2) with one out in the 11th and doubled to right field against Jamey Wright (1-1).

Left-hander J.P. Howell entered to face the lefty-swinging Blackmon, who came in leading the majors with a .410 average. The leadoff hitter grounded a 2-2 pitch up the middle to drive in the go-ahead run after going hitless in his four previous at-bats against Josh Beckett.

Nolan Arenado followed with a single that extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games. The Rockies added another run when first baseman Adrian Gonzalez threw home on a grounder in front of the bag by Carlos Gonzalez and was too late to get Blackmon. Justin Morneau capped the rally with an RBI single against Brandon League.

Brothers pitched a hitless inning and LaTroy Hawkins got three outs for his seventh save after giving up a two-run homer to Adrian Gonzalez. Yasiel Puig also went deep for the defending NL West champions, who are 1-5 in extra-inning games.

Beckett allowed two runs and four hits through eight innings with six strikeouts and no walks, after pitching five scoreless innings in each of his previous two starts. The right-hander, whose first four outings have resulted in no-decisions, hasn't won since beating the Rockies on Sept. 30, 2012, at Los Angeles.

Beckett was 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in eight starts last season before sitting out the final five months because of a groin strain and a subsequent bout with thoracic outlet syndrome, a nerve condition that required surgery in July.

Lyles allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings, striking out four and walking one. His only other start against the Dodgers was on Aug. 14, 2011, as a rookie with Houston, when he gave up seven runs and three homers over 5 1-3 innings in a 7-0 loss.

The Dodgers tied it 2-all in the third on Puig's RBI single.

Puig, the second batter Lyles faced, hit the first pitch to center field for his third home run. The Dodgers' lead didn't last long, however, as Tulowitzki drove Beckett's second pitch of the second inning deep into the left-field pavilion for his fifth of the season.

Two batters later, Dickerson hit a first-pitch homer to left-center. Beckett retired 17 of his next 18 batters.

NOTES: Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw (back) threw 56 pitches over five innings in a simulated game for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga against visiting Lancaster, allowing a run and two hits with six strikeouts and a walk. The run came on a leadoff homer in the fifth. Every inning was chronicled batter-by-batter by team spokesman Joe Jareck on the press box loud speaker - including Kershaw's pitch count after each inning (7-20-6-6-17). ... Ten of Puig's first 22 big league homers have come on the first pitch.
