Dodgers Vs. Rockies: L.A. In Search Of Third Straight Win

The Dodgers look for their first three-game winning streak in nearly three weeks as they host the Colorado Rockies Tuesday night in the second game of a three-game set at Dodger Stadium. Ted Lilly gets the start for the Dodgers, who have won their last two games by a combined score of 15-1. The offensive outburst has been a welcome surprise for a club that was averaging under three runs per contest in May.

Lilly is 3-4 with a 4.41 ERA in 11 starts this season, and is coming off back-to-back quality starts for the first time this season. Lilly shutout the Rockies at Dodger Stadium last August 19. The Rockies have lost nine of their last 11 games, and are 8-20 in May. Clayton Mortensen gets the call for Colorado.

For the Dodgers, Rafael Furcal has had three straight games of at least two hits, and is 7-for-13 with a home run and a walk in his last three games. Andre Ethier has reached base in 14 of his last 20 plate appearances, dating back to last Monday in Houston.

Tonight's 7:10 p.m. PDT game will be televised by KCAL. For more news and information on the Dodgers, or on tonight's game, be sure to read the SB Nation blog True Blue LA.
