TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Huston Street is finally showing he might be the right choice for the Colorado Rockies closer job.

Street pitched a scoreless inning Thursday, his fifth in six games, but the Rockies lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-6.

Colorado manager Clint Hurdle refused to say if he favors Street or Manuel Corpas.

Street, obtained in a trade in November with Oakland for Matt Holliday, had a quadriceps muscle problem that led to early spring troubles. But his last outings have impressed the coaching staff.

Los Angeles pitcher James McDonald had his second straight strong outing, making a good case for the Dodgers' fifth starting spot by going three scoreless innings.
