Mookie Betts and Corey Seager didn’t start the Dodgers’ series finale against the Colorado Rockies. The stars were given a day off before a three-game weekend series against the San Diego Padres, who finished second in the National League West.

Cody Bellinger was already on the injured list. Gavin Lux, Seager’s replacement at Shortstop, was a late scratch with a sore wrist. Manager Dave Roberts anointed 35-year-old David Price, who has never saved a regular season game in his career. The Dodgers are a day closer.

With one hand securely tied behind their backs, the Dodgers beat the Rockies 7-5 and completed a three-game series sweep in front of an advertised sell-out of 15,129 people with limited capacity at Dodger Stadium.

The Rockies were leading 5: 3 in the seventh inning with two outs when Max Muncy started a triple home run against Yency Almonte (0: 1). The Dodgers never followed again. Will Smith added an insurance run when he hit on a wild field from third base, and Price made his first save in his 325th regular season appearance.

« It’s fun to be out there helping us win and finish a baseball game, » Price said. « I haven’t had a lot of opportunities to do that. The options I have are definitely a different feeling and it’s a lot of fun. »

Price defeated two consecutive singles to beat two batters in a row and then retired Raimel Tapia on a ground ball to end the game. Price kept the ball, received an official authentication sticker, and planned to send it to his parents in Tennessee.

Thursday marked the 74th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the baseball color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Every player on every team wore Robinson’s number 42 jersey, an annual April 15th tradition. It was a special occasion for Price, who had pledged his salary for the day to the Players’ Alliance in honor of Robinson. He said he hadn’t pitched any of his 12 major league seasons on April 15.

When Roberts walked into the Dodgers’ training room to tell Price that he would be in a safe position on the hill?

« I can’t really repeat what I said, » said Price, « but I loved it. »

The Dodgers won all six games on their first home stand in 2021 and improved to 11-2 that season. The Rockies fell to 3-10.

Justin Turner scored his second home run in as many games and doubled in a 3v3 performance. Chris Taylor contributed a double to the Dodgers’ nine-hit attack.

With a hit in the seventh inning, Matt Beaty took a walk. Taylor hit a potential double-play ground ball at third base, but he hurried down the line to take the relay by one step. That kept the inning alive for Turner taking a walk.

Almonte fell 2-0 behind Muncy and made a move across the plate. Muncy didn’t miss it and sent his third home run of the season to the stands on right field.

Julio Urías’ third start in 2021 wasn’t his best. For five innings, he limited the Rockies to three hits and two runs, thanks to the solo home runs by Ryan McMahon and Garrett Hampson. The sixth inning wasn’t just a Waterloo for Urias. It was the Dodgers ugliest inning of the season.

With an out, McMahon doubled to the left field and then scored the bond run on a line drive single by C.J. Cron. Josh Fuentes scorched a ground ball to stop, and Taylor was only able to knock it down on the edge of the infield dirt. The Rockies had easy timing for Urias.

After a brief visit from pitching coach Mark Prior, Urías beat Elias Diaz for the second time. The next batsman, Yonathan Daza, tossed a first pitch fastball into right field for a single. Misfortune followed.

Zach McKinstry, who stood up for Betts, set Daza’s torch in one fell swoop. Preparing for a throw, the rookie let the ball slide out of his hand and Cron hit lightly.

Daza made the mistake of rounding the first base too aggressively and ended up in a shabby state. Meanwhile, Fuentes, the front runner, made a run for home plate and slipped safely into it as Taylor’s throw sailed over the head of Smith, the catcher. A few minutes earlier, the Dodgers were suddenly leading 5-3 in one run.

« Sometimes it’s the nature of the game: you can have the best headspace ever and it goes wrong, » said Muncy. « Tonight we got past it, developed and hopefully we can do that for the whole season. »

Urías finished the inning without causing further damage. Jimmy Nelson (1-1) threw a goalless seventh inning to take his first win as Dodger. Dennis Santana threw a goalless eighth place.

Roberts said he would take a breather from his Leverage Reliefs on Thursday. Victor Gonzalez, Corey Knebel, Blake Treinen, and Kenley Jansen had all served the night before.

Price couldn’t save the match ball from his first career, except in Game 7 of the 2008 American League Championship Series, when he was a rookie for the Tampa Bay Rays. Second baseman Akinori Iwamura put the ball in his back pocket after the final was recorded.

Seager, Betts and Lux ​​eventually came into play. Seager and Betts were defensive substitutes. Lux stepped up as a prize runner for A.J. Pollock, who sustained a groin injury earlier in the game. Roberts said the veteran was seen as commonplace.
