The Rockies' surprising run of excellent starting pitching won't need to continue for Colorado to get another win against the Dodgers tonight. Brett Tomko isn't their most dominant starter. Rodrigo Lopez, much maligned by me entering the regular season, gets a good ballpark to try and build on his fine first start of the season at Coors. It'll be all the usual starters for the Rockies save for Chris Iannetta, who gives way for Yorvit Torrealba.
The Dodgers won't have Matt Kemp after the incident yesterday. Andre Ethier takes his place in right. L.A. still counts on those old fellas, plus Russell Martin, for most of its offense. The Rockies looked younger and faster and less likely to hurt themselves playing in the first game. Let's see if the trend continues.
