In the top of the second inning, the Dodgers went down 1-2-3. In the bottom half of the inning, Yorvit Torrealba led off the inning with a home run to make it a 2-1 Rockies.

However, the see-saw match continued as, in the next half inning, the Dodgers came back to tie it up. They did it after James Loney came through again. This time, he drove in pitcher Brad Penny, who had doubled to lead off the inning to tie it a 2-2.

The see-saw match continued in the bottom of the third inning when, just like he did in the first inning, Matt Holliday launched a home run on the first pitch of the at-bat to make it a 3-2 Rockies lead.

The Dodgers did not score in the fourth inning, though, but the Rockies added to their lead in the bottom of the fourth. Cory Sullivan delivered with an RBI single to make it 4-2 Rockies.

The Dodgers halved the Rockies lead in the top of the fifth inning when James Loney scored Juan Pierre with an infield groundout.

Rockies starter, Josh Fogg, was replaced after five innings. The reliever replacing him was Ryan Speier. However, he did not provide the Rockies with any relief.
