Dodgers come from six down to stun Rockies |

With a furious late rally, the Dodgers stormed to a remarkable 10-8 Coors Field win over the Rockies on Wednesday night on Andrew Toles’ grand slam with two outs in the ninth inning of the nightcap, avoiding sweeps of the doubleheader and the three-game series.

After falling behind, 8-2, the Dodgers scored three runs in the eighth and five more in the ninth off Adam Ottavino. Toles’ slam was his third homer of the season and the win left the Dodgers with a 1 1/2-game lead over the Giants in the National League West. Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth for his 40th save.

Epic fall: Royals score seven in ninth to stun White Sox

Tough loss to Omaha, I mean, the Kansas City Royals.

It came the day after the bullpen blew a three-run lead to start a nine-game road trip. It was the Sox’ fifth loss in a row and 13th in their last 17 games and it left more than a couple players sitting at their lockers in stunned silence, a scene more common in late August or September than late May.

“When they won, I was like, ‘This is true?’ I can’t believe it,’’ Sox left fielder and former Royal Melky Cabrera said. “I just can’t believe it.”

Nor could a Sox fan base that saw its team storm to a 23-10 start and six-game lead in the American League Central. As the Cleveland Indians, who took three of four from the Sox at U.S. Cellular Field to start the week, won in Baltimore to knock the Sox out of first for the first time since April 22, “fire Robin Ventura” petitions were circulating on the Internet.

“You get to that ninth, and the way games have been going, you go to the guy to close it out, because we haven’t been able to get to him,’’ said Ventura, noting Robertson’s light workload of four appearances in the last 18 days and his first in five days. “There’s no time clock. If you can’t close it out, that’s what happens. And today we couldn’t close it out.’’
