Game 80: Colorado Rockies at Los Angeles Dodgers; Chad Bettis vs Scott Kazmir

After last night's hibernation, the bats look to come alive against the Dodgers' key acquisition of this past offseason in Scott Kazmir.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockies have a chance to take two of three games in Los Angeles. Can they get it done against Scott Kazmir?

Tonight's starter, Chad Bettis, had a rough time in his last outing despite two solid starts before that against the Yankees. Bettis went five innings against the Diamondbacks the last time out, allowing 12 hits, seven runs (all earned), three walks and three strikeouts. He struggled mightily to miss bats and was giving up a lot of hard contact. Can Bettis turn it around in Los Angeles? If he doesn't, will he get replaced in the rotation?
