Barnes HR, Jansen bounces back as Dodgers edge Rockies 1-0

Austin Barnes connected on a slider from Rockies pitcher Kyle Freeland and drove it into the left field stands in the second inning to score the game's only run.

LOS ANGELES — Austin Barnes homered early, Kenley Jansen preserved the lead late and the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night. 

Jansen had blown saves against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday and Thursday, but pitched a scoreless ninth for his 22nd save in 26 opportunities. 

The right-hander, who allowed a combined seven runs in one inning his past two outings, issued a two-out walk to Ryan McMahon but got C.J. Cron to chase an 0-2 slider to end the game. 

Barnes connected on a slider from Kyle Freeland and drove it into the left field stands in the second inning for his fourth homer of the season.
