Joc Pederson had three hits and drove in three runs, while Matt Beaty, Kike Hernandez and Russell Martin had two hits each, as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 10-5 in Denver on Sunday.
Dylan Floro (3-2) got the final two outs of the fifth inning to get the win for the Dodgers, who earned a split of the four-game series.
Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl homered and Tony Wolters had two hits for Colorado.
Dahl was named to the NL All-Star team, his first selection, during the game. He joins Blackmon, Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado.
The Dodgers also had four players named: Cody Bellinger, Walker Buehler, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Clayton Kershaw.
The Dodgers took a 1-0 lead in the third when pitcher Kenta Maeda singled with one out, moved to third on Pederson’s single and scored when Beaty beat out a double-play ball.
They increased the lead in the fifth. Kike Hernandez walked, Martin singled and Hernandez scored on Maeda’s sacrifice bunt. A throwing error by Colorado starter Chi Chi Gonzalez on the play allowed Maeda to reach and Pederson’s single to left drove in Martin from second to make it 3-0.
The Rockies rallied in their half of the fifth to take the lead. Garrett Hampson and Wolters led off with singles, and after a strikeout left-hander Zac Rosscup relieved Maeda. Blackmon’s infield single drove in the first run and Dahl hit his 12th homer to right to put Colorado ahead 4-3.
The Dodgers sent 11 to the plate in the sixth against reliever Chad Bettis (1-4). Three straight singles loaded the bases and Bettis hit Justin Turner with a pitch to tie it at 4-4.
Pederson lined a single to right field to score two more runs, Beaty’s double drove in another run and Chris Taylor walked to load the bases again. Jesus Tinoco relieved Bettis and Bellinger’s forceout scored another run. Max Muncy singled to cap the inning and put the Dodgers up 9-4.
Taylor had a two-out double in the eighth and scored on Bellinger’s single. Blackmon hit a solo homer, his 20th, in the ninth.
