A Paucity Of Home Runs

The Dodgers look to get back on track Tuesday night at Coors Field, sending Ted Lilly to the mound to face Jhoulys Chacin of the Rockies. Lilly has allowed three runs in three starts so far this season.

Lilly allowed a home run to Carlos Gonzalez last August 26 at Dodger Stadium. Since then, 245 batters have come to the plate against Lilly and none have hit a home run, a span of 62 2/3 innings.

The Dodgers have faced Chacin 10 times since the beginning of the 2010 season, and Chacin has allowed just one home run in 64 innings, with a 2.39 career ERA against the Dodgers. That one home run off Chacin was hit by ... you guessed it, Matt Kemp, at Coors Field.
