The Colorado Rockies are on the road to face the Los Angeles Dodgers. They just dropped eight of nine games at Coors Field.

The Colorado Rockies are hoping a change of scenery will do them good when they open a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. The only thing is, the Rockies need to do that on the road at Dodger Stadium, which is always quite tough for the team. Throw in that Colorado is coming off a 1-8 homestand, the horror of 2012 is still with the Rockies.

Drew Pomeranz (1-6, 5.13 ERA) makes his 12th start of the season and his second start of the season against the Dodgers. At Coors Field on May 2, he allowed one run on four hits and four walks in 6.2 innings. However, he took a no-decision in the Rockies' 8-5 victory. In his last start, Aug. 1 against the Cardinals, Pomeranz lasted just four innings and allowed three runs.

The Dodgers counter with Chris Capuano (10-7, 3.33 ERA), who is no stranger to the Rockies this season. He picked up a no-decision against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium on May 11, allowing one run in seven innings during the Dodgers' 7-3 victory. Then at Coors Field on June 1, the Dodgers lost 13-3 and Capuano allowed seven runs in 5.1 innings. His last two start leading up to Monday's game echo his last outing against the Rockies, as he has allowed 11 runs in 10.1 innings.

This game is scheduled to start at 8:10 p.m. MT and can be seen on ROOT Sports and heard on 850 KOA.
