Final score: 4-1, Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers played the finale with the Colorado Rockies Sunday looking for a sweep with newly off the DL Brandon McCarthy getting the start. McCarthy only allowed two hits, one walk and struck out eight. He left the game leading 3-0.
The bullpen held down the game and only gave up one run, by Casey Fien. Adam Liberatore, Joe Blanton and Kenley Jansen all pitched scoreless frames for the Dodgers as well.
The offense got going early again. Trayce Thompson and Yasmani Grandal each hit solo home runs and McCarthy also drew an RBI with a bases-loaded walk to help the Dodgers complete the sweep of the Rockies.
Trayce Thompson 1 (32)
