The Dodgers go for their fifth straight win on Saturday, hosting the Rockies in the second game of a three-game weekend series at Chavez Ravine. Chad Billingsley gets the start and luckily for the Dodgers, the location is just right.
Billingsley in seven career starts is 1-6 at Coors Field with a 6.32 ERA, including last Sunday's loss against Millwood and the Rockies. However, at Dodger Stadium Billingsley is 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in six career starts against Colorado, including allowing one run in seven innings on May 30.
