Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers makes a comeback for the series opener against the Rockies


Following another successful road trip in the second half, the Los Angeles Dodgers are aiming to regroup within their own stadium on Thursday as they initiate a 10-game homestand against the Colorado Rockies. Having achieved an 11-4 record on the road in the latter half of the season, the Dodgers secured a 2-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday. However, their performance at home has been less impressive, standing at 5-4 since the All-Star break. The Dodgers are welcoming back a reliable member of their pitching rotation, as experienced left-hander Clayton Kershaw (10-4, 2.55 ERA) is scheduled to make his return on Thursday after recovering from a shoulder injury. Kershaw, a 10-time All-Star, last pitched on June 27, when he held the Rockies to just one hit over six scoreless innings in Denver.
