Kiké Hernandez hit a three-run drive and Mookie Betts went deep twice in the Dodgers’ seven-homer attack, powering host Los Angeles past the Colorado Rockies 11-3 on Sunday for a three-game sweep.
“The simple truth of this series is they outpitched us and they outhit us,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “They came in with a lot of momentum, they were playing well, and they continued.”
The Dodgers (22-8) are the only team in the majors yet to lose a series, unbeaten in 11. They have won 11 of 12 games overall.
