Dodgers Beat Rockies 2-1 On Betts’ Infield Single In 9th


Cody Bellinger scored the winning run on Mookie Betts’ infield single with the bases loaded in the ninth inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers edged the Colorado Rockies 2-1 to complete a three-game sweep.

Dodgers starter Mitch White and three relievers combined to allow only one hit — a single by Brendan Rodgers in the sixth. Bellinger, who had three hits, and Gavin Lux opened the ninth with back-to-back singles.

Lux hit a bleeder to the open left side of the infield with the shift on that allowed Bellinger to reach third.

The Rockies then went to a five-man infield, and pinch-hitter Will Smith drew a walk to load the bases for Betts with nobody out.
