Cron, Rockies outhomer Dodgers in 4-2 victory


AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — C.J. Cron hit a mammoth, tiebreaking home run leading off the sixth inning, and the Colorado Rockies defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2. After striking out twice, Cron sent a 482-foot shot off Andre Jackson next to the bar seating above the Dodgers’ bullpen in left field for his major league-leading 30th RBI in August. The Rockies improved to 16-47 on the road in a game in which all the runs came on homers. The Dodgers missed a chance to gain ground on NL West-leading San Francisco and remained 2 1/2 games behind the Giants, who lost 6-5 at Atlanta.
