Matt Kemp Back In Lineup As Dodgers Seek To Snap Skid

Matt Kemp is back in the cleanup spot tonight against the Rockies.

Matt Kemp is back in tonight's starting lineup after missing the first eight innings Friday night, looking to replicate some of that ninth inning magic as the Dodgers look to snap a three-game losing streak. The Dodgers are 0-4 at Coors Field this season.

Ted Lilly gets the start for the Dodgers looking for his fifth straight quality start. Over his last four outings, Lilly has a 2.77 ERA with two walks and 19 strikeouts in 26 innings. Last year with the Dodgers, Lilly made two starts at Coors Field. One was terrible (seven runs in four innings, a day game on August 29), and one was great (one run in eight innings, a night game on September 27).

Jason Hammel gets the start for the Rockies. Even though he already has a win against the Dodgers this season, he has not pitched well against them. Hammel in two starts against L.A. this season has a 10.24 ERA, but against everyone else Hammel has a 2.70 ERA in 10 starts. Hammel has the distinction of being one of just two pitchers to allow three career home runs to James Loney, with the other being Cole Hamels. Lest you think Loney's success against Hammel came in the past, two of those home runs have come this season. Two of Loney's three on the season.
