The Colorado Rockies had the chance to put a little distance between themselves and the Los Angeles Dodgers in the N.L. West.

Los Angeles got the offense going early, scoring two runs in the each of the first two innings.
The Dodgers added two more runs in both the fifth and sixth innings to keep the Rockies at arm's length.
Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon hit two home runs in the loss. Nolan Arenado also homered for the Rockies, his first since August 24.
The Rockies start a four-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday at Coors Field. Coverage starts at 6 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
