|Tyler Anderson got in a groove from the first inning and kept on going.
Anderson tossed a career-high eight scoreless innings Shaun Alexander Jersey , Pat Valaika, Nolan Arenado and Chris Iannetta homered, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 on Friday night.
Anderson (5-3) struck out eight and walked one on 96 pitches. The left-hander retired his first 11 batters before giving up a two-out single to Justin Turner in the fourth. Matt Kemp singled leading off the fifth and Yasiel Puig narrowly beat out the throw on a two-out bunt in the same inning.
”It’s been a while since everything has really been on,” Anderson said. ”My last couple of starts were pretty close, I felt like my command was there I just made a couple mistakes. Tonight I didn’t make those mistakes. It was a total mix of all my pitches.”
Anderson retired five straight batters before allowing a single to Cody Bellinger in the seventh. Anderson improved to 4-0 on the road with a 3.48 ERA while holding hitters to a .216 average. The Rockies have won seven of his last nine starts away from home.
”He kept us off-balance,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. ”He has a three, four-pitch mix that we couldn’t get any swings off of.”
Iannetta homered leading off the ninth, extending Colorado’s lead to 3-0.
Arenado hit his team-high 20th homer in the eighth and Valaika homered over the center-field fence for Colorado’s first run in the fifth.
Valaika homered for the first time since last Sept. 24 at San Diego. It was just his second homer ever at Dodger Stadium. His first long ball in the majors came on Sept. 24, 2016, in the same stadium.
”It felt good to put the barrel on the ball in a real game, a big league game,” Valaika said. ”It felt good to get the lead, too.”
The Rockies turned double plays behind Anderson in the fifth and eighth innings.
”Andy pitched great. He was spotting up everything Duane Brown Jersey , it was pretty easy to play defense,” Valaika said. ”I was thinking it was the third inning and I hadn’t really fielded anything yet.”
Wade Davis worked the ninth to earn his 23rd save in 27 chances.
Rich Hill (1-3) pitched solidly in his third start since coming off the disabled list because of a finger blister. Only one of his six hits was for extra bases, a double by Trevor Story in the sixth.
”The ball came out of my hand the way I wanted it to,” Hill said. ”Everything was really came together.”
Hill struck out a season-high 10 and didn’t walk anyone while allowing one run in 6 2/3 innings. His 110 pitches were a season high and the most he’s thrown since May 13, 2016, at Tampa Bay.
But the Dodgers’ bullpen struggled for the second straight game. Scott Alexander gave up Arenado’s homer and Yimi Garcia allowed Iannetta’s shot.
A day earlier, Walker Buehler was rocked for five runs and five hits in one-plus innings of an 11-5 loss to the Cubs.
Turner’s two-out shot in the ninth gave the Dodgers a franchise-record and major league-leading 54 homers in June with one day left.
”This team has set the record for the most home runs in the month for them, so clearly they’re trying to put the ball in the air,” Anderson said. ”Tonight when they did it they were just underneath a lot of things.”
The Rockies began the month getting swept by the Dodgers in a three-game series, with Los Angeles scoring 33 runs in those games. Colorado improved to 5-2 against Los Angeles this season.
PITCHER CAN HIT
Anderson collected a career high-tying two hits with singles in the third and seventh. Hill had an 0-2 count against him in the third and appeared annoyed when Anderson made contact. ”He’s a good hitting pitcher,” Hill said.
Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp singled in the fifth, snapping an 0-for-15 skid. In his last 23 games against the Rockies since Sept. 20, 2015 Tom Savage Jersey , Kemp has hit .389.
RHP German Marquez (5-8, 5.53 ERA) starts for Colorado, which has won four of his seven road starts this season. He has a 3.07 ERA away from home compared to 7.93 in Denver. RHP Kenta Maeda (5-4, 3.44) goes for the Dodgers. In eight career games, including six starts, Maeda is 5-2 with a 2.11 ERA to go with 48 strikeouts and nine walks.
Three straight one-goal decisions in their first-ever playoff series have the Vegas Golden Knights in position of advancing to the second round.
A number the Golden Knights don’t want to consider is five as they look to eliminate the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night at Staples Center.
Only four NHL teams have squandered 3-0 leads in a best-of-seven playoff series: the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs; the 1975 New York Islanders; the 2010 Philadelphia Flyers — and the Kings, who defeated the San Jose Sharks in the opening round and eventually went on to defeat the New York Rangers for their second Stanley Cup.
That’s why Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb is not ready to call this series over heading into Game 4.
“They’re a confident group, still. They believe in there, for sure,” he said of the Kings. “We can’t deviate from what we need to do.”
Los Angeles defenseman Drew Doughty is also sticking to the one-game-at-a-time mantra.
“We’ve done it before, but I don’t think we’re looking that far ahead,” he told the Kings’ official website. “Obviously we’ve got to win that series, but we’re not looking at it in that sort of way. We’ve just got to win one game right now.”
Vegas is on the brink of sweeping after scoring three third-period goals en route to a 3-2 victory in Game 3 on Sunday night. Cody Eakin tied the score Corey Liuget Jersey , 1-1, early in the frame before Neal and William Karlsson scored 21 seconds apart with just under six minutes to play.
Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant credits a veteran core with deep playoff experience to keep the team on an even keel.
“A lot of these guys have been there before,” he said. “Deryk Engelland, James Neal, (Marc-Andre) Fleury, they talk to the players about being composed.”
According to the league’s official website, the Golden Knights are the third team to win their first three playoff games, joining the 1996 Florida Panthers and the Pittsburgh Penguins, who won four straight in 1970.
Unlike Vegas, the Panthers and Penguins did so in their third seasons. And, again, Gallant’s laid-back demeanor comes through.
“My message all year long … we worry about the next game,” he said. “I don’t worry about what’s happened in the past. “
If Los Angeles is to extend the series Matt Breida Jersey , it needs contributions from their top players. The Kings have managed three goals in the series — one from center Anze Kopitar (career-high 35 regular-season goals) and none from wingers Dustin Brown (28 goals) and Tyler Toffoli (24).
Toffoli, who’s taken a team-high 14 shots in the series, knows what he must do.
“I had a lot of opportunities in front of the net and around the net, and I’ve just got to get pucks up and be able to find a way to score,” he said. “I’ve had plenty of opportunities to score. I’ve just got to be able to finish.”
In just about any other series, the Kings’ Jonathan Quick would be praised for his 1.69 goals-against average through three games. Fleury, though, has logged an 0.84 GAA.
“It’s going to be hard to finish this series out. Every game’s been really tight. It’s going to be a battle,” McNabb said.
Game 5, if necessary, is scheduled for Thursday night in Las Vegas.
