MLB: Colorado 2, LA Dodgers 0

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- Josh Fogg and three relievers combined on an eight-hit shutout Wednesday as Colorado won a franchise-record 10th straight game -- 2-0 over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Rockies moved within two games of division-leading Arizona in the National League West and those teams will meet on the final three days of the season. The Rockies are also one game behind San Diego in the wild card battle.

Fogg (10-9) allowed five hits over 6 2/3 innings before giving way to Jeremy Affeldt.

Affeldt recorded the final out in the seventh, Brian Fuentes worked the eighth and Manny Corpas came on in the ninth to pick up his 18th save. Corpas put the tying runs on base with two outs before getting Juan Pierre to ground into a force play to end the game.

Colorado scored its two runs in the third inning on a double by Yoruit Torrealba and singles from Kazuo Matsui, Troy Tulowitzki and Matt Holliday.

The hard-luck loss went to Derek Lowe (12-14), who gave up just five hits and two runs in seven innings.
