The Rockies try to stave off another losing streak in Los Angeles today.

The Rockies take on the Dodgers tonight at 7:10 MT.

The Rockies send Jorge De La Rosa to the mound today. He has not been good so far this season, and his last start was also not good: four innings, three runs allowed, and six walks. That start was one of four time this season a Rockies starter walked six batters, which is most in baseball. In fact, the Rockies have 23.5 percent of the games this season where a starter has waked at least six. What the Rockies are hoping for tonight is that De La Rosa can pitch more than five innings for the first time of 2015. As anticipated, Troy Tulowitzki is not in the lineup today.

The Dodgers counter with Zack Greinke. The Rockies will be tasked with trying to knock Greinke from atop the ERA (1.52) and ERA- (40) MLB leaderboards. This will be Greinke's 15th start against the Rockies in his career. He currently owns a 3.57 ERA in just over 85 innings pitched. Although the Dodgers bench is quite good, he's at least getting a break tonight because Joc Pederson and Adrian Gonzalez will sit against the left-handed De La Rosa.

I'll be cheering for no injuries, although the most important ship in that fleet might have already sailed.
