Julio Urias and Antonio Senzatela each fired three perfect innings before a prototypical Coors Field game broke out that saw the Los Angeles Dodgers outlast the Colorado Rockies for a 5-4 win in 10 innings.

After Trea Turner’s soft chopper went for an infield single in the top of the fourth, the Rockies collected their own first hit baserunner against Julio Urias in similar fashion in the bottom half of the inning.

That wound up leading to a run as Charlie Blackmon’s two-out RBI double broke up the scoreless tie. C.J. Cron then followed that with an extra-base hit of his own to put the Dodgers in a 2-0 deficit.

Senzatela struck out the first two batters faced in the fifth inning, Gavin Lux sparked a rally by driving a single the other way to beat the shift. Luke Raley, recalled Tuesday with Cody Bellinger going on the 10-day injured list, kept the inning alive with a base hit as well.

Urias then helped his cause with an RBI single that cut the Dodgers’ lead in half. That was followed by Mookie Betts easily beating out a high chopper to drive in the tying run from third base before Senzatela could get out of the inning.

L.A. pulled ahead on Max Muncy’s double that scored Turner from first base in the sixth, and added to it behind Will Smith’s sacrifice fly.

Urias was unable to keep the lead as the Rockies mounted another two-out rally in the bottom of the sixth inning to pull even. Urias allowed four runs for only the second time in his past 15 starts, with the prior instance coming at Coors Field as well on July 16.

Both Urias and Senzatela went six innings and allowed four runs on seven hits.

Blake Treinen inherited a bases-loaded jam from Joe Kelly with two outs in the eighth and proceed to turn in 1.1 scoreless innings. Kenley Jansen followed that by working around a leadoff walk and wild pitch in the ninth to send the game into extra innings.

Albert Pujols provided the Dodgers with a lead in the 10th on his pinch-hit RBI single, and Brusdar Graterol and Alex Vesia combined to finish the game out in the bottom half of the inning. The save was Vesia’s first of his career.

Dodgers potentially catch Giants

As the Dodgers wrapped up their win at Coors Field, the San Francisco Giants were trailing the San Diego Padres in the fifth inning. A Giants loss would allow the Dodgers move into a tie for first place in the National League West.
