The old visitors clubhouse at Dodger Stadium was built with mouse-like proportions, a tiny cubbyhole in the middle of a basement maze. He is 4-3 with a 3.86 ERA in 12 road starts, with the Rockies going 6-6 in that span. They knocked around one of the games best pitchers, Clayton Kershaw, on Thursday, who's final stat line for the night was 3.2 innings pitched with six hits and four earned runs. For reference, the Dodgers were outscored during this 10-game stretch by 42. Wood was 10-0 with a 1.67 ERA at the break.
Maybe divine intervention will do it. It is Faith Day at Dodger Stadium on Sunday. San Francisco took a three-game series from the Rockies the last time Colorado ventured into the City by the Bay. Since his All-Star appearance at Miami he has gone 4-2 with a 4.07 ERA and just returned from the disabled list last week after dealing with SC joint inflammation.
With the Dodgers up 4-1 in the fifth, Darvish gave up a two-run double to Raimel Tapia.

The Dodgers avoided the shutout thanks to September call up, Alex Verdugo, who launched the first home run of his MLB career when he crushed a 93MPH fastball from Adam Ottavino over the wall in left-center for L.A.'s first run of the game.
One of the reasons the Rockies were having difficulty winning in August was because they would be close all throughout the game and then relievers would blow the game wide open towards the end, mostly because of the struggles of Derek Holland.
Rockies hand Dodgers eighth straight loss
"I absolutely think it's ridiculous", Roberts said of the crowd's reaction to Baez. Roberts wouldn't say who will start Wednesday's game in San Francisco, or the three games against the Nationals.
He was preaching to the wrong choir. There will be chances to outscore the opposition in conference play but FAU simply isn't built to compete in Saturday's environment.
This time, Darvish allowed five runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings. Andre Ethier also hit a home run. Of course, Los Angeles entered the month with a 91-41 record - or on pace to win 112 games. It is the Dodgers' longest losing streak since 2013. But they are waiting to learn of the extent of damage.
Trevor Story's two-run homer, his 20th this season, keyed a four-run second inning as the Rockies (77-65) remained three games ahead of the Cardinals and Brewers in the National League wild-card standings. "For a lot of guys who've never been in a playoff atmosphere, this is what it is, when the fans get that excited". Mark Reynolds strode to the plate with the bases loaded to face rookie reliever Walker Buehler, a top prospect in the Dodgers system. Reynolds connected on a 3-2 pitch, sending many in the announced crowd of 50,161 heading to the exits. Once the envy of the league when they reached 90 victories well before the calendar flipped to September, the Dodgers are now in a free fall for the ages.
In Toronto, third baseman Jeimer Candelario started Detroit's first triple play in 16 years, Nicholas Castellanos slugged his third career grand slam and the Tigers edged the Blue Jays.
