David Dahl clobbered a solo homer on Sunday as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Dahl's solo blast off of Dodgers' closer Kenley Jansen gave the Rockies a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning, but it would prove to be short-lived. The homer was Dahl's lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. He has acclimated himself well to big league pitching thus far, slashing .315/.357/.500 with seven homers and 23 RBI.

Tyler Anderson logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, surrendering two runs on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings.

The left-hander walked two and struck out only one batter on the afternoon. The Dodgers scratched out a run against him in the third inning and then tied the score with Corey Seager's RBI triple in the seventh. Anderson has done a really nice job in the Rockies rotation this season, compiling a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and a 99/28 K/BB ratio over 114 1/3 innings. He'll wrap up his season on Saturday against the Brewers.
Sep 25 - 8:12 PM

Chad Bettis was demolished for seven runs -- five earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

He can't blame this one on Coors Field either. He struggled to throw strikes, walking four on 105 pitches in the short and ugly outing. He gave up eight hits and struck out three. Bettis gave up four runs in the second inning, two more in the fourth and was chased after giving up an RBI single to opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw in the fifth. His record falls to 13-8 with a 4.92 ERA in 179 1/3 innings.

Nolan Arenado went 2-for-3 in a lopsided loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

The Rockies predictably couldn't get anything going against Clayton Kershaw. Both of Arenado's hits were singles. He is having another fantastic season. He is rocking a .294 batting average with 40 home runs, 129 RBI and 112 runs scored. He is still only 25 years old.
Sep 25 - 12:27 AM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

Gerardo Parra will fill in at right field and bat fifth. It's a convenient night for Gonzalez to take a breather, as he holds a .199 career average in 36 at-bats against Clayton Kershaw.
Sep 24 - 7:16 PM

DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

He's just getting a routine day off. LeMahieu has had a career year for the Rockies and is on the cusp of winning his first batting title. Rookie Pat Valaika will draw the start at second base Saturday while batting seventh against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.
Sep 24 - 7:11 PM

Jon Gray fanned 10 while giving up four runs in four innings Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Gray is the fifth pitcher ever to strike out 10 while working four innings of less. All five of those outings have come since 2013. Along with the 10 K's, Gray have up two homers and three walks to the 19 batters he faced. He also hit a batter. It took him 106 pitches to get through those four innings. Considering his workload this year, he probably should have been pulled earlier.
Sep 24 - 2:48 AM

Nolan Arenado hit his 40th homer Friday against the Dodgers.

Arenado has 40 homers and 129 RBI right now after finishing with 42 homers and 130 RBI last year. Where he's grown as a player is in the walk department; he's taken 55 unintentional walks this year and finishing with just 21 in 2014.
Sep 24 - 2:45 AM

Gerardo Parra (illness) is not in the Rockies starting like for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

Parra was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup due to an illness. It's unclear if Friday's absence is related to him still feeling under the weather, or it's simply a product of the matchup against left-hander Scott Kazmir. He's still considered day-to-day.
Sep 23 - 6:46 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

LeMahieu connected for a solo shot off Brett Anderson with one out in the fifth inning. The tater was his 11th of the season. In addition, the 28-year-old second baseman is hitting .352/.422/.503 and has driven in 66 runs over 537 at-bats. He has put forth two-hit showings in three of his last four games.
Sep 23 - 1:14 AM

Tyler Chatwood kept the Dodgers in check in Thursday's no-decision, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

Chatwood had some issues with his control in this one, as he walked four and threw just 57 of his 102 pitches for strikes. He pitched well enough for the win and exited with a 4-2 lead, but the Rockies bullpen imploded like an imperfectly made submarine after he left the game, surrendering five runs in the seventh inning and ultimately falling by a final score of 7-4. The 26-year-old right-hander will bring a 4.08 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into a road showdown with the Giants in his final start of the season.
Sep 23 - 1:09 AM

Gerardo Parra was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Thursday due to an illness.

Stephen Cardullo replaced him at first base and will bat seventh for the Rockies against Brett Anderson and the Dodgers on Thursday. Parra should be considered day-to-day.
Sep 22 - 9:25 PM

Tom Murphy ripped a three-run shot in the Rockies' pounding of the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Murphy struck out in his first three at-bats, but he went deep to right-center off Cardinals reliever Jonathan Broxton in the Rockies' five-run seventh inning. The three-run blast put Colorado up 11-1, and that score would hold. Murphy has performed well as a September callup, slashing .310/.355/.828 with five home runs and 11 RBI in 12 games. He probably deserves regular at-bats over this final stretch.
Sep 21 - 6:25 PM

Nolan Arenado slugged a grand slam Wednesday in the Rockies' 11-1 rout of the Cardinals.

Arenado cranked his four-run shot against rookie Cardinals starter Luke Weaver in the bottom of the second inning to put the Rockies up 6-1. He also drew a walk and singled, finishing 2-for-4 with four RBI and two runs scored in the big afternoon romp at Coors Field. Arenado is batting .294/.362/.573 with 39 home runs and an MLB-leading 128 RBI in 150 games this season. The 25-year-old third baseman is on his way to a second straight 130-plus RBI campaign.
Sep 21 - 6:19 PM

German Marquez tossed five innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a win over the Cardinals.

Marquez was handed a big early lead and was able to run with it, yielding just four hits and a walk while striking out three. It was the first-ever major league start for the 21-year-old right-hander, who could be a big part of the Rockies' future. If he stays on turn, Marquez will get the Giants at AT&T Park next.
