Dodgers Vs. Rockies: Kevin Millwood, Chad Billingsley Toe The Rubber On Sunday

After yesterday's 13-inning marathon at Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies and the Los Angeles Dodgers each have a chance to win this weekend series. The Rockies outlasted the Dodgers by coming back from a two-run deficit in the 12th innings and adding the winning run on a Dexter Fowler RBI single in the bottom of the 13th.

Kevin Millwood is making his third start for the Rockies and still looking for his first win with the team. He was denied it in a 3-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds despite making it through seven innings. Against the Marlins, Millwood allowed four runs in six innings, but the Rockies picked up the victory by scoring four runs in the bottom of the ninth, capped by a Jason Giambi three-run home run. This will be his first start against the Dodgers since 2002.

Chad Billingsley is making his third start at Coors Field in 2011 and neither one was kind to him. He's allowed 11 runs in eight innings and surrendered 19 hits. This is in line with his career numbers at Coors Field, going 1-5 with a 7.88 ERA in seven career appearances (six starts).

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. MT.
