|The Rockies offense slugged, but Tyler Chatwood was impressive.|
Taking on Ted Lilly, who has owned the Rockies, going 7-1 in his last eight starts against the purple pinstripes. Lilly lasted three innings, getting battered around for five runs, four earned, on eight hits. Dexter Fowler started the scoring with a long home run to left-center field, then Wilin Rosario capped the first inning scoring with a home run of his own, this one to the opposite field.
The Rockies scored four in the 1st inning, then one more in the 3rd and made a joke of the game by putting up five runs to make it 10-0. After years of watching the Rockies struggle at Dodger Stadium, many Rockies fans were probably wondering if the team had scored 12 runs in an entire season in LA, let alone one game.
In the win, Nolan Arenado notched his first, second and third Major League hits. The second hit of the night was also a first for Arenado. The third baseman launched a home run deep to center field off of Josh Wall. In a touching moment, the cameras panned to Arenado's friends and family, who were celebrating the first career homer for the prospect that has an extremely high ceiling.
