Dodgers rally in ninth to beat Rockies

Justin Turner’s slow roller in the ninth drove in the go-ahead run, Yasmani Grandal added two more with a homer, and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the Colorado Rockies 10-7 on Sunday.

Max Muncy homered twice and Tony Cingrani (1-2) pitched 1 1/3 innings in relief for the win. Kenley Jansen got the last three outs for his 14th save.

Ian Desmond homered for the Rockies, who lost catcher Chris Iannetta to an undisclosed injury in the top of the ninth.

The Dodgers scored three times off Rockies closer Wade Davis (0-1) in the ninth. Turner’s groundout to Davis drove in Logan Forsythe and Grandal followed with a two-run shot to center.

The Rockies grabbed the early lead when DJ LeMahieu, Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado began the bottom of the first with singles to make it 1-0.

After Trevor Story’s sacrifice fly scored Blackmon, Desmond hit a two-run homer off starter Alex Wood to make it 4-0.

Muncy led off the second with a homer to left to cut L.A.’s deficit to 4-1.

The Rockies added more in the second when Chad Bettis and LeMahieu walked and Blackmon singled to load the bases. Wood hit Story one out later to drive in Bettis and then walked Desmond to give Colorado a 6-1 lead.

The Dodgers got close in the third when Muncy capped an 11-pitch at-bat with a home run to make it 6-4.

Los Angeles took the lead in the sixth after Bettis got the first two outs. Yasiel Puig doubled and pinch hitter Kike Hernandez walked against reliever Chris Rusin.

Scott Oberg then gave up a single to Forsythe but appeared to get out of the inning by getting Breyvic Valera to ground to shortstop. However, Story short-hopped the throw to first for an error, and two runs scored to make it 7-6.

L.A. gave back a run in the seventh when Arenado singled, went to third on an errant pickoff throw from Brock Stewart and scored when Forsythe misplayed Desmond’s grounder at second.
