(Updated: UPDATING: Puig listed as day-to-day in Game Notebook.)
Dodgers 10, Rockies 8: Hanley Ramirez went 4-for-5 with one of Los Angeles' four home runs as the visiting Dodgers posted their 10th win in 11 games but may have lost their rookie phenom in the process.
Yasiel Puig doubled, scored and lifted a sacrifice fly before leaving the game in the sixth inning with a bruised left hip and tightness in his thigh. Adrian Gonzalez, Juan Uribe and Matt Kemp all went deep and Mark Ellis collected three hits and an RBI for Los Angeles, which has scored 28 runs during its four-game winning streak.
Puig made a catch in right field in the fifth inning before running into the wall. After throwing the ball into the infield, he clutched his left thigh while dropping to the ground. Puig remained in the game after being attended to by the team trainer and lifted a sacrifice fly in the top of the sixth before exiting.
Ramirez, who extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a base hit in the first inning, singled and scored during the Dodgers' four-run fourth that was highlighted by Uribe's two-run blast off Tyler Chatwood (4-2). The shortstop led off the seventh with a double and came home on a groundout by Kemp to give Los Angeles an 8-5 lead before opening the ninth with his seventh homer of the season.
The Dodgers' 17-hit attack helped make a winner of Zack Greinke (6-2), who was roughed up for five runs on six hits and seven walks in five innings. Kenley Jansen allowed a run in the ninth before notching his eighth save in 11 opportunities.
