The last time the Rockies won a series at Dodger Stadium was September 17-19, 2010. In the clinching game, Jhoulys Chacin threw eight scoreless innings and Troy Tulowitzki hit two home runs as part of his Ruthian 5-homers-in-3-games and 14-homer-in-15-games stretch.

At the conclusion of that game, Colorado was 82-66, one game out of the division lead and a half game out of the wild card spot. That would have been three playoff teams in four years, but the squad lost 13 of 14 the rest of the way, squeaking out a one-run extra inning win.

In other words, the Rockies were on their way to completing their top three franchise seasons in a four year stretch when they last won a series at Dodger Stadium. They have gone 113-169 (just a 65 win pace) since that time.

Winning tonight won't erase those 23 difficult months, but it would be a positive for a team that has not won a series or even two games in a 3-game stretch in the second half.

Alex White is aiming to build on his last start, where he held the National League's best lineup scoreless at Coors Field for five innings before faltering in the sixth. The Rockies will hope to give White run support of Aaron Harang, who just isn't very interesting.
