    Dodgers Lose 12-9


     On Saturday night, the Dodgers lost to the Rockies 12-9. Both teams saw the lead change several times during the game, but it was the Rockies who would ultimately prevail thanks to clutch pitching down the wire by Brian Fuentes who now has 13 saves on the year. The pitching on the Dodgers side was not as productive, as every member of the Rockies starting lineup managed to score a run. However, the Dodgers hope to turn the series around when they wrap things up in Colorado this Sunday at 11:30. Tune into KHTS AM 1220 for all the exciting action.
