Balk! Rockies go down in the sixth

Dodgers win one for the broadcaster, Vin Scully
Esmil Rogers threw up his arms in anger and manger Jim Tracy came out to argue with third base umpire Bob Davidson to no avail; Rogers’ balk stood in the Rockies’ woeful sixth inning.
Aaron Miles scored the game-tying run on a balk by Esmil Rogers (pictured), and James Loney and Matt Kemp followed a second balk with consecutive homers in the deciding sixth inning.
Matt Kemp hit his 30th home run Friday night, becoming the fastest player in Dodgers history to reach the 30-homer-30-steal mark, doing so in 130 games.

Carlos Gonzalez’s homer extended his hitting streak to 13 games and gave him 10 in a row with an RBI, tying a club record. ...
