DENVER -- Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Ted Lilly left Saturday's game against Colorado with right neck stiffness.

Lilly retired the first two batters of the fifth inning before giving up a triple to Eric Young Jr. and walking Dexter Fowler. After the walk, the Dodgers trainer and manager Don Mattingly came out and talked to Lilly, who then walked to the dugout.

Hong-Chih Kuo relieved Lilly, who left with a 4-3 lead. The Dodgers went on to lose 7-6 in 13 innings.
