Rockies ride Helton's heroics
Split falls through cracks
The Dodgers came out swinging in Game 2, collecting 13 hits, including home runs by Luis Gonzalez, James Loney and Russell Martin, and a key two-run triple by Tony Abreu. But Takashi Saito suffered a rare blown save, and L.A. took a twin bill sweep.

Series at a glance:
Dramatic HR caps nightcap
Todd Helton enjoyed his second curtain call in a week, hitting a walk-off, two-run homer in the ninth off All-Star closer Takashi Saito. Matt Holliday, who went 4-for-5, including his 100th homer, kept hope alive with a two-out single and bailed out a 'pen that struggled to hold L.A. down.
