Rapid Reaction: Dodgers 10, Rockies 5

LOS ANGELES – It has yet to be determined whether the Los Angeles Dodgers can reach their first World Series in 26 years, but the team has made steady progress lately in resuscitating its standing in the National League.

NL batting leader Justin Morneau out of Rockies lineup vs. Dodgers

LOS ANGELES -- Justin Morneau's slim lead in the National League batting title is safe for now, which is a big part of the reason why the Rockies' first baseman is not in the starting lineup for Saturday night's game against the Dodgers.

Rapid Reaction: Dodgers 7, Rockies 4

LOS ANGELES -- Just as they did in their NL West-clinching victory 48 hours earlier, the Los Angeles Dodgers seized control Friday night with a thunderous sixth inning, then marched on to a 7-4 victory against the visiting Colorado Rockies in the opener of a three-game series. How it happened: The Dodgers trailed 3-1 entering the sixth and were already replacing their starters, when pinch-hitter Darwin Barney led off with a broken-bat single up the middle.

Series preview: Rockies at Dodgers

LOS ANGELES -- If not for the fact that they couldn’t use ace Clayton Kershaw in Game 1, the Los Angeles Dodgers would probably just as soon have the playoffs start Friday. Instead, they’ll be starting a nearly meaningless series with the Colorado Rockies. With their lineup as healthy as it has been all season, the Dodgers have finally shown the kind of offensive depth and destructiveness they envisioned when they traded for all those hitters last year.
