Rockies (8-10-1) @ Dodgers (10-10), 1:05pm
Both clubs return from an off day Wednesday back into Cactus League action today. The NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament also starts today, and it was kind enough to schedule around the Dodger game today:
9:25am: (15) Cal State Northridge vs. (2) Memphis
1:05pm: Rockies @ Dodgers
4:25pm: (4) Gonzaga vs. (13) Akron
6:50pm: (6) UCLA vs. (11) VCU
Birthday boy Clayton Kershaw ("pitch responsibly," says Jon Weisman at Dodger Thoughts) will start for the Dodgers, and be followed on the mound by Guillermo Mota, Cory Wade, and Hong-Chih Kuo, says Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
Fellow MLB.com scribe Thomas Harding reports Franklin Morales will be the starting pitcher for the Rockies.
