Colorado will try to slow down the Dodger offense following the 8-0 loss on Friday night which snapped a four-game winning streak for the Rockies. Tyler Chatwood (5-5, 5.49 ERA) is slated to start for the Rockies, as the right-hander tries to win his second consecutive start. Chatwood also earned the win in his last start against the Dodgers in late August, when he pitched five innings, allowing five hits and just two runs in the 8-4 win. The Dodgers must win out and the St. Louis Cardinals must lose out in order for Los Angeles to make the playoffs.
Los Angeles counters with right-hander Joe Blanton (9-13, 4.86 ERA) on the mound to start the game. Blanton hasn't won a game since his last start on August 29th against Colorado when he pitched seven and one-third innings and gave up 10 hits but just three runs.
The game is scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m. MT with broadcast coverage on ROOT and 850 KOA.
