Dodgers Highlights: Chris Taylor & AJ Pollock Homer In Win Over Rockies

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ only series of the year at Coors Field has been a positive one as they earned a 6-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night to extend their winning streak to five games. They will now go for the four-game sweep on Sunday afternoon.

L.A. scored plenty of runs through the first two games of the series, and that was again the case on Saturday. Chris Taylor opened it with a two-run triple in the first inning to drive in Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger, who singled and walked, respectively, all with two outs.

Taylor had a big night at the plate as he collected another RBI in the fourth inning on a solo home run, his seventh of the year.

The Dodgers then broke the game open by adding three more runs in the seventh inning. That rally was started by the team’s second homer of the night, an opposite-field shot off the bat of AJ Pollock.

He was the subject of a lot of criticism this past offseason but has responded with arguably the best season of his career as he is now up to 12 home runs.

The final run of the night came courtesy of Mookie Betts on the basepaths. Rockies reliever Mychal Givens attempted to pick him off second, but the throw went into center field so Betts took off for third. When the defense was lazy getting the ball in, Betts never slowed down and was able to score with ease on the play.

Kershaw turns in strong outing at Coors Field

Clayton Kershaw certainly did his part on the mound, turning in one of his best outings of the season. He allowed a run in the first inning but settled in from there, getting through seven innings while giving up just four hits with six strikeouts and no walks.

The southpaw earned the win to improve to 6-2 on the season to go along with a 2.15 ERA.
