Rockies Escape Max Scherzer in Massive Sunday Game

Adjust Comment Print

Bellinger got the scoring started with a 2-run home run in the bottom of the fourth, his 25th home run of the season.

Blackmon almost hit for the cycle last season in May, but put on the breaks between first and second late in the ball game.

Rockies' starting pitcher Tyler Anderson managed to escape the first inning unscathed with just four pitches despite allowing two singles.

The victor of the Dodgers-Rockies game will host the first two games of the National League Division series against the East Division victor Atlanta Braves.

He may be cocky, but the 24-year-old backed it up on the field, helping the Dodgers secure their sixth straight NL West title.

The last time a Rockie hit for the cycle was Nolan Arenado on June 18, 2017 when he walked off the San Francisco Giants to finish the feat and provide one of the most memorable endings in Rockies history.

The hidden gem in Anderson's start was his ability to pitch deep into the seventh inning to preserve the Rockies bullpen for their impending challenges.
