Game Preview: Jurrjens vs. Kershaw

Justin Edmonds

Another new face gets the call tonight

Jair Jurrjens, a castoff who hasn't pitched meaningful innings since 2012, is going for the Rockies on this beautiful July 4th. He will be opposing Clayton Kershaw, who is the best pitcher in baseball.

Tonight's lineup does not feature Troy Tulowitzki, who is dealing with some groin tightness. Josh Rutledge is taking his spot in the lineup.

Nolan Arenado gets slotted into the three hole, with Morneau backing him.

The Dodgers have their usual crew, except for Scott Van Slyke, a very capable replacement, in center field.

Go Rockies.
