The Los Angeles Dodgers moved one game closer to wrapping up their regular season with Saturday serving as Dan Haren’s final tuneup before the postseason.

Haren allowed a one-out single and nothing else in the first inning, then was given an early lead behind Adrian Gonzalez’s solo home run in the bottom of the first that ended a personal 0-for-16 streak.

Dee Gordon, appeared to have suffered some form of injury during his at-bat in the first inning and was removed from the game with right hip irritation.

Haren pitched a quick second and this time Colorado Rockies starter Eddie Butler matched his effort in the home half of the inning with the only threat coming on a Justin Turner two-out double. Haren’s streak of seven consecutive batters retired came to an end in the third inning on Charlie Blackmon’s two-out single.

It would be to no avail for the Rockies however, as Haren retired the next batter. Yasiel Puig singled in the third and it was followed by a Gonzalez walk. With two outs and a runner in scoring position Rafael Ynoa robbed Matt Kemp of a likely double with a backhanded stop and force out at third base.

Michael Cuddyer hit a leadoff ground-rule double in the fourth and after Haren recorded an out, he gave up a ground-rule double to Kyle Parker that tied the game.
