Dodgers Beat Rockies 5-2, Stretch NL West Lead To 5 1/2

Max Muncy and Mookie Betts hit first-pitch home runs to power the Los Angeles Dodgers past the last-place Colorado Rockies 5-2.

The victory pushed the Dodgers’ NL West lead to 5 1/2 games over San Diego, their largest of the season. Rookie Ryan Pepiot got the victory.

He was recalled from Triple-A earlier in the day to make his fourth career start. Colorado’s Kris Bryant homered for the first time since last September. That snapped a career-worst 38-game homerless streak for Bryant.
