Dodgers lose 10th in a row, Rockies romp 8-1 - MLB Summaries/Schedule/Standings

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers lost their 10th straight game for their worst skid in 25 years, routed by Mark Reynolds and the Colorado Rockies 8-1 Sunday.

Reynolds hit a grand slam, Nolan Arenado and Trevor also homered, and Tyler Chatwood pitched five scoreless innings. The Rockies remained three games ahead of St. Louis and Milwaukee for the second NL wild-card spot.

Los Angeles still owns the best record in the majors at 92-51, but even that's becoming tenuous. Washington beat the Phillies on Sunday to cut LA's lead to four games.

The Dodgers have dropped nine in a row at Chavez Ravine for the first time in 30 years. Overall, Los Angeles has lost 15 of 16, including its longest drought since losing 10 straight in 1992.

Rich Hill (9-8) gave up two runs and four hits in five innings. Chatwood (7-12) allowed five hits and struck out five.

Checking out the rest of the major league finals:

— The Washington Nationals wrapped up their second consecutive NL East crown with a 3-2 win over Philadelphia and the Marlins' 10-8 loss in Atlanta. Stephen Strasburg threw eight innings of two-hit ball to extend his scoreless streak to a franchise-record 34 innings. Trea Turner homered and tripled to help Strasburg improve to 13-4. The Marlins' bullpen fell apart, blowing an 8-5 lead in the ninth before Lane Adams belted a two-run, walk-off homer off Vance Worley in the 11th. Adams also scored on a game-tying, two-run single by Rio Ruiz with two out in the Braves' three-run ninth.

— The Cleveland Indians now own the best mark in the American League after running their team-record winning streak to 18 games. Francisco Lindor and Roberto Perez belted sixth-inning homers to help the Indians top Baltimore, 3-2. Perez snapped a 1-1 tie with a leadoff homer before Lindor added his 29th of the season. Trevor Bauer won his ninth straight decision and 16th of the season to move into a tie with Boston's Chris Sale for the American League lead. Bauer allowed a pair of runs over 6 1/3 innings for the AL Central leaders, whose magic number is down to seven.

— The Cubs' lead in the NL Central is down to two games over Milwaukee and St. Louis after the Brewers completed a three-game sweep at Wrigley Field, 3-1. Travis Shaw hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer to back Zach Davies, who is 17-8 after yielding just one run and seven hits over seven innings. The Cubs managed just three runs in the series.

— The Cardinals rolled to a 7-0 rout of Pittsburgh as Yadier Molina hit a three-run homer and tied a career high with five RBIs. Michael Wacha was sharp in the Redbirds' seventh win in eight games, allowing five hits and striking out seven over seven innings. Randal Grichuk's solo shot helped St. Louis move a season-high seven games over .500.

— The Diamondbacks halted a two-game skid and won for the 14th time in 16 games by downing the Padres, 3-2. The game was knotted 2-2 in the sixth until J.D. Martinez hit his second homer of the afternoon. Paul Goldschmidt also homered and Robbie Ray allowed two runs and four hits over six innings to move to 13-5.

— Reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello was dealt his major league-leading 17th loss as the Red Sox fell to the Rays, 4-3. Wilson Ramos and Evan Longoria hit solo shots for the Rays, who cut Boston's lead in the AL East to 3 1/2 games over the Yankees. The Bosox have scored two runs or fewer 18 times in 30 starts while Porcello was in the game.

— Aaron Judge is the second major league rookie with a 40-homer season after going deep twice in the Yankees' 16-7 pounding of the Rangers. Gary Sanchez also hit two solo homers for the Yankees, giving him 30 this season and 50 in his 161 games since his 2015 debut. Didi Gregorius added four hits and four RBIs to a victory that leaves the Yankees 3 1/2 games ahead of Minnesota for the first AL wild-card spot.

— The Twins were 11-3 losers at Kansas City as Jason Vargas picked up his career-high 15th victory. Vargas was reached for just one run and four hits over five innings after going 2-7 with an 8.13 ERA in his previous 11 starts. Brandon Moss crushed a three-run homer to finish with four RBIs.

— The Angels are within one game of the Twins for the second AL wild-card slot after Los Angeles beat the Mariners, 5-3. Justin Upton broke a 2-2 deadlock with a two-run double in the eighth. Mike Trout and Luis Valbuena had solo homers as the Angels avoided a sweep.

— The Athletics completed a four-game sweep by taking advantage of a wild Dallas Kuechel in a 10-2 drubbing of the Astros. The Houston ace walked in two runs and hit a batter to force in another during a shaky sixth inning that allowed Oakland to take a 4-1 lead. The A's also got homers from Matt Chapman, Ryon Healy, Boog Powell and Matt Olson.

— Teoscar Hernandez hit his first two home runs of the season and finished with five RBIs in the Blue Jays' 8-2 whipping of the Tigers. Darwin Barney had four hits for the Jays, who assured the Tigers of just their second losing season in a decade.

— The Mets ended a four-game winning streak by blowing a 5-2 lead for Jacob deGrom in a 10-5 loss to the Reds. Zach Cozart tied it with a three-run homer off Paul Sewald and Tucker Barnhardt added a three-run blast to finish with five RBIs.

— Jose Abreu homered twice and Carson Fulmer won his first major league game as a starter by outpitching Madison Bumgarner in the White Sox's 8-1 rout of the Giants. Bumgarner gave up six earned runs and 10 hits in five innings, his worst start of the season.
