Dodgers Vs. Rockies: Tyler Chatwood, Colorado Can Continue Role As Spoiler On Tuesday

Last in the NL West standings, the Rockies haven't been in the postseason talk or news headlines for a while. The same cannot be said for the Dodgers, who are right in the thick of the division and wild card races with just over 30 games to play.

So while the Rockies don't have much of an opportunity to make noise of their own, they can certainly continue to play the role of spoiler on Tuesday after a 10-0 win over Los Angeles on Monday night.

To get back-to-back wins over the Dodgers, the Rockies will need another strong showing on the mound, this time from Tyler Chatwood, in his sixth start of August. Chatwood didn't earn a decision in his last start, allowing three hits in three innings, but managed to keep the Mets scoreless.

He'll be facing Chris Capuano of the Dodgers, who is having the best season in his eight-year career with the exception perhaps of his 18-win 2005 season with the Brewers, although his ERA was higher in that year. However, Capuano struggled in his last appearance, giving up six runs to the Giants in five innings en route to his ninth loss of the season.

The first pitch on Tuesday is scheduled to be thrown at 6:40 p.m. MT and will be televised on Root Sports-Rocky Mountain as well as KCAL.
