Thursday Recap: Rockies Left With a Dirty Dozen Delivered by Dodgers
The Rockies saw their losing streak to the Dodgers reach 12 games on Thursday, the second longest losing streak against one team in franchise history. The only one longer was against the Braves in the first 16 games the two teams played against each other during the 1993 and 1994 seasons.

Charlie Blackmon was 3-for-5 in Thursday's loss, his fifth consecutive home game with three or more hits. It's a Rockies record and is tied for the longest such streak in MLB history.

Wade Davis, meanwhile, is in a sudden Coors Field funk. After allowing one run in his first seven Coors Field appearances this year -- 6 1/3 innings -- he has allowed14 earned runs in 6 1/3 innings his last seven -- 10 runs in 2 1/3 innings his last three, including four runs in the ninth inning on Thursday night.
While he had a no-decision, Walker Buehler of the Dodgers gave up seven runs in 5 2/3 innings, one of 10 Dodger starting pitchers to allow seven or more runs in a road game during the last five years.
