The Dodgers look to continue their home success against the Rockies with a three-game series beginning Monday night at Dodger Stadium.

Since the beginning of the 2009 season, the Dodgers have won 10 of 12 series against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium, and are 25-11 in games at Chavez Ravine against Colorado during that time. Four of those games were started by Ted Lilly, who won all four and looks for his first win of 2013 on Monday night.

Lilly as a Dodger is 7-1 with a 3.32 ERA against the Rockies in nine starts, including 4-0 with a 2.15 ERA at Dodger Stadium. Carlos Gonzalez has owned Lilly, hitting .400 (8-for-20) with five home runs, but just about every other Rockie with any history against Lilly has flailed and failed. Troy Tulowitzki, who hurt his shoulder on Sunday, is 4-for-32 (.125); Eric Young Jr. is 3-for-22 (.136), Dexter Fowler is 3-for-23 (.130), and Michael Cuddyer is 3-for-15 (.200), though with a home run and a double.

The middle of the Dodgers' order has had success in their limited time against Rockies' starter Tyler Chatwood. Matt Kemp is 3-for-6 (.500) with a home run and a walk against him, Andre Ethier is 4-for-9 (.444) with two doubles, and Adrian Gonzalez is 2-for-5 (.400) with two walks.

In 13 starts with the Rockies, dating back to last year, Chatwood has a 4.99 ERA with 36 strikeouts and 31 walks in 57⅔ innings.
