DENVER — Cody Bellinger, Mookie Betts and Gavin Lux homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers set a season high for runs, romping past the Colorado Rockies 15-6 to move closer to clinching their eighth straight NL West title.

The Dodgers’ magic number for wrapping up the division dropped to four. They were already the first team to secure a playoff spot this season.

Bellinger had three of LA’s season-high 17 hits, including his first homer since Aug. 30 and a double. 

Betts delivered a solo homer in the sixth to increase the Dodgers’ major league-leading total to 98, and added a two-run triple in the seventh.
