Blackmon broke for home plate on the play and he was ruled out on Gonzalez’s throw to Grandal for the third out in the fifth, making the game official. Rockies manager Walt Weiss challenged the ruling and after a review that lasted over three minutes, Blackmon was still called out.

The rain eased up as the game went into the sixth inning, which began with a Rollins strikeout. Butler hit Turner with a pitch and Gonzalez reached on a single that Blackmon was unable to come up with on a diving attempt.

After a brief pause for the umpire crew chief to speak with the head groundsman as rain again picked up, play resumed with Grandal at the plate. Grandal grounded sharply to Tulowitzki, who had fielding issues for the second time in the game and it resulted in the Dodgers loading the bases with one out.

Guerrero worked a 1-1 count before the game entered a rain delay before being ruled a Dodgers’ 2-1 win nearly one and a half hours later. The rain-shortened win at Coors Field is the second in as many seasons for the Dodgers and Anderson becomes the first Dodgers pitcher to throw a complete game this season.
