DENVER (AP) - Alex White gave the overworked Colorado bullpen some much-needed rest, pitching shutout ball into the seventh inning Sunday as the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2.
The Rockies took two of three from the NL West leaders.
White (2-3) gave up two runs in the seventh and left with two outs. After reliever Rex Brothers gave up a hit, Matt Belisle retired the four batters he faced.
Rafael Betancourt pitched a perfect ninth for his 10th save.
Colorado starters had combined for a total of five innings in the first two games of the series. Josh Outman reached a pitch limit after 3 1-3 innings in his first start this season Friday, then a knee injury forced Juan Nicasio out after 1 2-3 innings Saturday.
