Dodgers cap season with win over Rockies

Los Angeles, CA ( - Roger Bernadina came off the bench to hit a homer and knock in four runs, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers wrap the regular season up with a 10-5 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Adrian Gonzalez and Matt Kemp also homered, with Gonzalez driving in three runs in the win.

Zack Greinke (17-8) limited the Rockies to one run over five innings for the Dodgers (94-68), who host St. Louis in the NLDS starting on Friday.

"The last three days have been good for the club," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "We had good at-bats. Now it's going to be different. St. Louis is a good club. They've been a thorn in our side the last couple of years."

Christian Bergman (3-5) took the loss after giving up eight runs -- seven earned -- on 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings for Colorado (66-96), which dropped its final four games of the season.

In a down year for a club ravaged by injuries, the Rockies' bright spot was Justin Morneau, who sealed up the NL batting title on Sunday with a .319 average.

Morneau became the first Canadian to win the title since former Rockie Larry Walker did so in 2001.

"It's hard to put into words," said Morneau. "It hasn't sunk in yet. Going through tough times makes you appreciate the good times."

Wilin Rosario homered and Rafael Ynoa had three RBI in the setback.

LA opened the scoring in the first with a two-out double from Gonzalez which was followed by Kemp's 25th homer of the season.

Josh Rutledge got Colorado on the board in the second with an RBI single that scored Drew Stubbs.

Darwin Barney led off the home third with a single and Yasiel Puig reached on an error by Rutledge before Gonzalez tagged his 27th homer of the season to extend the lead to 5-1.

The Dodgers opened the game up with a four-run sixth, but the Rockies answered with a three-run seventh.

Erisbel Arruebarrena and Drew Butera singled with one out preceding Barney's RBI hit. Bernadina then deposited his first homer of the season over the wall in right for a 9-1 cushion.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh, Ynoa ripped a double into left that cleared the bags and cut the deficit to 9-4.

Bernadina added an RBI single in the home seventh, then Rosario clubbed his 13th homer of the season in the away eighth.
