The resurgent Rockies were at it again on Saturday night.
A four-run second inning got them going and they hung on to beat the Dodgers for a third consecutive game, 6-5.
Trevor Story blasted a two-run home run to get the Rockies' offense going. He finished the night 2-for-5 with three RBIs. Nolan Arenado and Gerardo Parra each had three hits and an RBI.
Rockies' starter Chad Bettis picked up his first win since September 30, 2016. Bettis went five innings ad gave up three earned runs while striking out five batters. The Rockies' bullpen gave up just one run in four innings of work.
The Rockies have won five of their last six games while the Dodgers have lost nine in a row. Colorado still has a three-game lead over both the Brewers and Cardinals in the race for the second National League Wild Card.
The Rockies go for a sweep of the four-game series on Sunday. Tyler Chatwood will get the start against Rich Hill.
