Rapid Reaction: Rockies 6, Dodgers 1

LOS ANGELES -- If the Los Angeles Dodgers are looking for bright spots, at least Brandon League and Brian Wilson got through the day without inflating their ERAs, each having pitched without allowing a run.

Other than that, there wasn’t much to feel good about in the Dodgers clubhouse after they lost the series finale to the Colorado Rockies 6-1 Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. They ended their 10-game homestand 4-6 and have lost eight of their past 13, winning one series in their past four, which came against the last-place Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Dodgers are also 7-11 in all games not played against the Diamondbacks, whom they have beaten seven out of eight times. The team now embarks on a nine-game road trip at the Minnesota Twins, Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals.

How it happened: Starter Hyun-Jin Ryu was not sharp from the first inning, struggling with location. He had spurts of effectiveness, but he completely lost it in the sixth, allowing a double and single before Josh Rutledge hit a three-run home run to break the game open.

Hits: The Dodgers lead the majors with 27 stolen bases, adding to their lead after Dee Gordon stole third base in the first inning. The Dodgers are 27-for-33 in steal attempts (82 percent).

Misses: The Dodgers committed three errors, and two led to runs against Ryu, who committed one of the errors. The team has 26 errors in 26 games.

Stat of the game: Ryu has not allowed a run on the road in 26 innings this season, but he has allowed 16 runs -- 14 earned -- in 13 innings at Dodger Stadium.

Up next: The Dodgers are off Monday before traveling to Minnesota for three games against the Twins, a team with the worst starters’ ERA in the American League.
