Justin Turner out of lineup for 5th straight game

Joe Robbins

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers have already clinched their first non-losing homestand of the season, and will try to clinch their first winning residency of 2014 on Tuesday night against the Rockies.

Justin Turner sits for a fifth straight game and for the sixth time in his last seven, still dealing with calf tightness. Miguel Rojas gets the call at third base on Tuesday night.

Hanley Ramirez is 0-for-9 with three walks against Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin, but the four Dodgers with the most plate appearances against the right-hander have all hit him well.

Andre Ethier is 12-for-29 (.414) with three doubles, a home run and 10 walks against Chacin, Matt Kemp is 8-for-33 (.242) with two home runs, two doubles and four walks, Adrian Gonzalez is 6-or-16 (.375) with a walk, and A.J. Ellis is 6-for-15 (.400) with a home run and a double.

Five Rockies have faced Dodgers starter Zack Greinke in  at least 10 plate appearances. Drew Stubbs is 8-for-18 (.444) with two doubles and a walk. Justin Morneau is 7-for-39 (.172) with two doubles and a walk, Troy Tulowitzki is 6-for-23 (.261) with a double, D.J. LeMahieu is 1-for-9 (.111) with a double and a sacrifice, and Corey Dickerson is 1-for-8 (.125) with two walks.
