Rockies snap Dodgers five game win streak

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Juan Nicasio scattered three hits over seven innings to outduel Clayton Kershaw, and DJ LeMahieu went 3 for 4 with an RBI to help the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Friday night.

The Dodgers' five-game winning streak ended as they fell back to .500.

The Rockies were 3-8 in their previous 11 games, including a 6-1 loss in the series opener Thursday.

Nicasio (5-4) struck out three and walked one after being recalled from the minors. The right-hander was 0-3 with a 6.43 ERA in his last seven outings before being sent down on June 27. He was 1-0 with a 0.82 ERA in two starts at Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Rafael Betancourt pitched the ninth to earn his 14th save in 15 chances.

Kershaw (8-6) struck out 10 and walked one and allowed three runs and six hits.
