After an off day, the Colorado Rockies resume their season with a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The last time the Rockies saw the Dodgers was at the end of July in Los Angeles. They escaped LA with a victory in the final contest of the three-game series.

The starter in that game for the Dodgers was Hiroki Kuroda (8-14, 2.88 ERA), who starts Friday's game in Denver. He was saddled with the loss after allowing one run, a fifth inning RBI single by troy Tulowitzki, in six innings. The Rockies won the contest, 3-1. In his three starts since then, Kuroda has thrown two starts of seven shutout innings, striking out eight and six, respectively. This will be Kuroda's fourth career start in Coors Field, where he is 0-2 with an 8.27 ERA.

Jason Hammel (7-11, 4.97 ERA) picked up the lone Rockies win against the St. Louis Cardinals last weekend. After allowing 12 runs in nine innings his previous two starts, Hammel held the Cards to one run in 6-plus innings. He had the offense behind him in the 6-1 victory, buoyed by Carlos Gonzalez's three-run home run in the third inning. Hammel is 1-1 in two starts in Coors Field against the Dodgers this year. He's allowed seven runs in 12 innings.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:40 p.m. MT.
