His walk-off blast on Saturday went deep to right field with two outs off of J.T. Chargois, who suffered his fourth loss and a blown save. The Dodgers are without closer Kenley Jansen for at least a month due to an irregular heartbeat. They went with Caleb Ferguson to begin the ninth, followed by Scott Alexander for an out, before Chargois lost the game for them.
Bryan Shaw earned his fourth win after throwing one inning of scoreless baseball out of the bullpen for Colorado. The Rockies were without Arenado in the starting lineup for this game as well due to a shoulder injury, which is why McMahon was in the starting lineup. The injury occurred during Friday's game, but they have survived thanks to the All-Star's replacement. Arenado did come in as a pinch-hitter in the ninth and was hit by the pitch.
Both starters pitched well, including Kyle Freeland striking out a career-high 10 batters over seven innings. He allowed both of the Dodgers' runs on six hits. Walker Buehler got the call for the Dodgers and struck out six over seven shutout innings. He was helped out by three double play balls on the night, as the Rockies continuously threatened before finally coming through on their final out.
The win for the Rockies pulls them within 1.5 games of the top spot in the NL West. The Dodgers remain atop the division, tied with the Arizona Diamondbacks, who fell to the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday. The Rockies are 2.5 games out of the final National League Wild Card spot as well, and will finish this series with the Dodgers at Coors Field on Sunday afternoon.
