Sept. 29, 2013 at 1:01 AM

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Juan Nicasio and five relievers teamed up on a three-hit shutout Saturday and Colorado blanked the playoff-bound Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0.

Nicasio (9-9) scattered three hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings, walking one and striking out seven.

Josh Outman, Adam Ottavino, Matt Belisle and Chad Bettis combined for 1 1/3 shutout relief innings, and Rex Brothers recorded the final four outs for his 18th save as the Rockies bounced back from an 11-0 thrashing in Friday's opener of a season-ending three-game series.

Nelson Arenado provided the contest's only RBI with a fourth-inning double.

Zack Greinke (15-4) tuned up for the playoffs with six innings of one-run ball, allowing four hits with no walks and seven strikeouts over six innings for the National League West champion Dodgers.
