Playoff-chasing Rockies homer 4 times to beat Dodgers 9-1

Posted: Updated:
DENVER (AP) -

Nolan Arenado hit the first of Colorado's four homers, Chad Bettis picked up his second win since his return from testicular cancer and the Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-1 on Friday night to remain on the verge of clinching their first postseason spot since 2009.
  
The Rockies have two games remaining and hold a two-game lead over Milwaukee for the second NL wild-card spot. The Brewers beat St. Louis 5-3 to stay in the picture.
  
A capacity crowd turned out hoping to see a clinch. Instead, fans got fireworks - during the game and after.
  
Arenado hit a solo homer, while Mark Reynolds, Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story added two-run shots. All four came with the count full.
  
Bettis (2-4) allowed one run over seven innings, retiring the final 14 batters he faced.
