Dodgers vs. Rockies: Matt Kemp, Troy Tulowitzki sit

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

DENVER -- Hanley Ramirez is in the starting lineup for a second straight day, but Friday night's Dodgers game against the Rockies game see days off for Matt Kemp and Troy Tulowitzki.

Kemp gets the day off for the first time since May 27 after starting the last 35 games in left field.

Tulowitzki isn't starting for the Rockies. Josh Rutledge starts at shortstop for Colorado, batting second.

Ramirez is 7-for-22 (.318) with three home runs, a triple, a double and two walks against new Rockies starter Jair Jurrjens, though the two haven't faced each other since 2010.

Jurrjens was just acquired by the Rockies on Wednesday from the Reds for minor league first baseman Harold Rigins. Jurrjens was 2-3 with a 4.46 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Louisville, with 27 strikeouts and 13 walks in 34⅓ innings. He last pitched on Saturday.

Jurrjens' major league time in 2012-2013 with the Braves and Orioles consists of 13 games, including 11 starts, nine home runs and 44 runs in 55⅔ innings, good for a 6.63 ERA.

Andre Ethier is 6-for-13 (.462) with seven walks (.650 on-base percentage) against Jurrjens, and Juan Uribe is 5-for-9 (.556) with a home run, two doubles and two walks. Adrian Gonzalez is 4-for-14 (.286) against Jurrjens with a home run and two doubles, and Kemp is 4-for-13 (.308) with a home run.

Again, take these numbers with a grain of salt as Jurrjens last faced the Dodgers once in 2012, but to add to the carnage: Dee Gordon, A.J. Ellis and Clayton Kershaw are all 2-for-2 against Jurrjens.
