Dodgers Vs. Rockies Starting Lineups: Andre Ethier Sits

Hiroki Kuroda and the Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win Friday night at Coors Field in Denver, facing Jason Hammel of the Colorado Rockies. Kuroda is in need of run support, as he has had a bizarre season at 8-14 with a 2.88 ERA, but he won't have Andre Ethier, who is not in Friday's lineup. Kuroda has made seven starts without allowing a run, but in his other 17 starts he is 2-14 with a 4.32 ERA.

Kuroda is 0-5 in nine career starts against the Rockies, including allowing five earned runs in all three of his starts in Colorado. The Dodgers have beaten Jason Hammel in two of three meetings already this season. Here are Friday's starting lineups:
