With this afternoon’s 7-6 loss to the Colorado Rockies in front of an announced 38,503, the Los Angeles Dodgers saw a five game winning streak come to an end as, unlike yesterday, this afternoon’s efforts to come from behind fell short.

The Dodgers had a big hole to dig out of early with rookie starter Nathan Eovaldi’s 41 pitch first inning that saw the Rockies plate five. “I felt like I made my pitches,” he said of an inning which featured broken bat singles and balls nearly caught by outfielders. In the first frame, Eovaldi (1-2) walked a trio of Rockies, let up a pair of RBI singles and a Kevin Kouzmanoff three-run double.

Manager Don Mattingly felt like the Dodgers had a shot after his team's poor first inning luck: “We just didn’t catch a break there. From there on we were pretty good.”
