The Rockies counter with Drew Pomeranz. The left-hander is 1-7 with a 4.78 ERA in 15 starts. Pomeranz has not reached the end of the sixth inning in any start since July 6, a stretch that spans eight appearances.

Dodgers CF Matt Kemp is expected to miss today's game after he suffered a right knee contusion and a jaw injury on Tuesday. Kemp was injured after crashing into the wall in pursuit of a triple by the Rockies' Josh Rutledge.
