Trayce Thompson hit a game-ending homer in the ninth inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 4-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night in the home debut for teenage prospect Julio Urias.

The 19-year-old Urias struck out seven over four innings. The Mexican left-hander allowed three hits and one run and was removed after 86 pitches with his workload being strictly monitored in just his third career start. It was by far his best so far in the majors.

Kenley Jansen (2-1) got the win after pitching a scoreless ninth.

Thompson hit a two-out blast in the ninth off Carlos Estevez (1-3) to give the Dodgers the win.

Justin Turner hit a three-run homer in the first to give the Dodgers an early lead but the Rockies tied it 3-3 in the seventh.
