They refuse to give in and refuse to go away.
The Colorado Rockies claimed their third straight dramatic win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, getting a 4-3 win on Chris Iannetta's bases-loaded walk with two outs in the bottom of the ninth on Sunday at Coors Field.
The Rockies built a 3-0 lead with single runs in the first, fourth and sixth innings.
But the Dodgers battled back with two runs in the seventh and one in the eighth to tie the game 3-3.
That set the stage for the Rockies in the bottom of the ninth.
D.J. LeMahieu led off with a single to right and went to second on an error by right fielder Yasiel Puig. After Trevor Story struck out, the Dodgers intentionally walked David Dahl. Ian Desmond reached on a fielder's choice ground ball to third. Dahl was forced at second base while LeMahieu went to third.
After the Dodgers intentionally walked Ryan McMahon to load the bases, Dylan Floro walked Iannetta to force home LeMahieu with the game-winning run.
Rockies starter Chad Bettis was terrific, throwing six scoreless innings, allowing only three hits.
The Rockies take the final three games of the four game series with the Dodgers and Colorado remains a game-and-a-half behind first place Arizona, which beat Cincinnati, 9-2. The Dodgers are one game behind the D'backs.
After a day off on Monday, the Rockies open a two-game series in Houston on Tuesday. Coverage will start Tuesday night at 5:30 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
