Dodgers Vs. Rockies: Colorado Turns To Drew Pomeranz To Avoid Series Loss

The Colorado Rockies play the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday afternoon, looking to avoid losing its third series in a row. The Rockies could have taken the series on Tuesday night had they completed a comeback against the Dodgers, but they ultimately lost the game, 7-6.

Wednesday's contest will be a battle between young lefties: one established, one looking to make a name for himself. The former, Drew Pomeranz (0-1, 5.40 ERA), takes the mound for the Rockies. Pomeranz pitched just four innings in his April 27 start after suffering left forearm tightness. He allowed just two runs before the flood gates opened in what concluded as a Rockies' 18-9 victory over the New York Mets.

Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 1.78 ERA) enters this contest on a two-game winning streak, allowing just two runs over the 15 innings thrown in those two starts. He has struck out 15 batters during this stretch as well. Kershaw is 3-3 with a 5.88 ERA in nine career starts at Coors Field

Game time/date: 1:10 p.m. MT, Wednesday, May 2, 2012
