The Rockies can thank #45 for guaranteeing a 4-5 road trip with that win last night, which would seem to satiate at least 68% of Rockies fans. But naturally, the Rockies aren't done yet.

Colorado have their last seven series against the Dodgers, dating back to a series win at Dodger Stadium August 19-21, 2008. The winner of the first game of that series was Ubaldo Jimenez, today's starting pitcher.

Kershaw has pitched past the sixth inning only twice this season in six starts (against the terrifying Pirates and Giants' lineups), walked at least four in four of five April starts and is coming off a seven-run 4-out performance in Pittsburgh. After Joe Torre's bullpen had to pick up nine innings last night, this could bode well for the Rockies.

As you read this, I am on the road to the midwest, so I won't be available to post overflows. Enjoy Ubaldo day everyone!
