The Dodgers start a week-long road trip in Colorado, with a day game on a holiday Monday.

Eric Stults makes his first start since ten days ago in Florida, after missing a start with a jammed thumb on his left hand.  Jorge De La Rosa starts for the Rockies.

James Loney in his career is hitting .363/.414/.625 in Coors FIeld with 30 RBI in 22 games.  This season, Loney is seven for 11 with four doubles and three RBI at Coors.

Per the Dodger game notes, "Since May 10 (11 games), [Casey] Blake leads the Major Leagues with a .475 average (19-for-40) and an .875 slugging percentage, while raising his average from .238 to .305."

Orlando Hudson has a 14-game hitting streak, tied with Matt Kemp for the longest streak of the season by a Dodger.  Hudson also has the third and fourth-longest streaks of the season with streaks of 11 and nine games.

The Dodgers are 5-1 against Colorado this season, including 2-1 in Denver.  All time at Coors Field, the Dodgers are 61-56.

Jonathan Broxton is tied with Oakland's Andrew Bailey for the most strikeouts in baseball by a reliever, with 35.

Brad Hawpe has owned the Dodgers in his career, hitting .354/.423/.605 with 69 RBI in 77 games.

Andre Ethier is out of the lineup again today, and Blake remains in the cleanup spot.  Rafael Furcal was in the original lineup, but appears to have been a late scratch. Today's Dodger lineup:

Pierre LF
Martin C
Hudson 2B
Blake 3B
Kemp CF
Loney 1B
Hoffmann RF
Castro SS
Stults P

The Dodgers, along with every other team in Major League Baseball today, will wear red caps, with a special red, white, and blue design in the logo.  While I appreciate the sentiment behind this promotion, I find it ridiculous that the Dodgers will wear these hats when they take the field today:

All MLB clubs will also wear these hats on July 4 and September 11.
