(Newser) – James Loney singled home the winning run in the 10th inning, and the Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of NL champion Colorado with a 3-2 victory on Sunday. It's the first three-game winning streak of the season for the Dodgers under new manager Joe Torre, who used his 24th different lineup in 25 games as he searches for a consistent combination.

Manny Corpas (0-2), working his second inning of relief, walked Rafael Furcal and pinch-hitter Mark Sweeney to open the 10th. Both runners advanced on Matt Kemp's sacrifice bunt, and Loney grounded a 1-0 pitch through the right side of the infield to end it. Joe Beimel (1-0) got the win, stranding runners at second and third in the top of the inning.
