LOS ANGELES -- Adam Ottavino gave up one hit in three innings of relief, a single that was the result of a reversed call, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-0 Monday night.

Ottavino (3-1) took over in the fifth inning for a tiring Drew Pomeranz.

Carlos Gonzalez had a sacrifice fly in the first inning and rookie Jordan Pacheco added an RBI single in the third for the Rockies, who prevented the Dodgers from overtaking NL West-leading San Francisco following the Giants' loss at St. Louis.

Rockies manager Jim Tracy was ejected by third base umpire and crew chief Mike Everitt in the bottom of the seventh when he slammed his cap to the ground following the reversal of a call on a sinking liner by Shane Victorino first ruled an out. TV replays showed center fielder Dexter Fowler trapped the ball.
