LOS ANGELES — Matt Kemp homered twice, Joe Blanton pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers climbed within two games of the second NL wild-card spot with a 3-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.

The Dodgers’ fourth straight victory, coupled with St. Louis’ 10-inning loss to Washington, kept the Dodgers clinging to their postseason hopes with four games left.

After this weekend, Los Angeles finishes up with a three-game series against NL West champion San Francisco. The defending World Series champion Cardinals close out the regular season with a three-game set at home against West champion Cincinnati.

The Rockies lost their 96th game of the season, setting a franchise record.
