LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bobby Abreu hit a three-run double and A.J. Ellis added a three-run homer during a sixth-inning rally Sunday that carried Ted Lilly and the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 11-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
All-Star center fielder Matt Kemp, who leads the Dodgers with 12 homers and a .359 batting average, left the game because of an irritated left hamstring after grounding out in the third inning. He has played in 399 consecutive games, the longest current streak in the majors.
Lilly (5-0) overcame a shaky start, allowing five runs - four earned - and six hits over 6 1-3 innings after giving up singles to each of his first four batters.
