The Dodgers bats went silent for the 2nd night in a row against the Rockies Cy Young pitchers. This time German Marquez faced Kenta Maeda. Marquez would go on to dominate the Dodgers and the Dodgers fall below .500 at home. The action for this game didn’t start until the 4th inning when the first hit was collected. D.J Lamahieu doubled to start the inning. Charlie Blackmon flied out and advanced the runner. DJ would score on a wild pitch and the score was 1-0 Rockies.

In the top of the 5th, Ian Desmond hit a solo shot and the Rockies led 2-0. In the bottom of the 6th inning, the Dodgers got their first hit as Kiki Hernandez hit a solo shot and the score was 2-1 Rockies. Chase Utley hit a single in the inning getting his first hit in forever. In the top of the 7th, Trevor Story hit a double. Chris Iannetta then singled him in and the score was 3-1 Rockies.
German Marquez continued pitching in the 7th inning and shut the Dodgers down. He also pitched in the 8th inning and shut the Dodgers down. Lack of offense with Seager out means the Dodgers need to get Manny Machado if they want to win the title. The offense the way it is isn’t going to win it.
