Dodgers At Rockies: Pregame Notes & Lineups

The Dodgers open a series at Coors Field against the Rockies with a chance to officially eliminate Colorado. The Rockies' elimination number in the National League West is two, and their elimination number for the NL Wild Card is four.

Ted Lilly leads all National League starters in throwing strikes, per STATS LLC, with 68.8% of his pitches thrown for strikes.

Ubaldo Jimenez of the Rockies has his second try at his 20th win of the season, which would be a first for the Rockies. The last pitcher to pick up his 20th win of the season against the Dodgers was Randy Johnson, who did so with Arizona on September 4, 2002.

This is the final road series for the Dodgers, who are 11-25 away from home since the All-Star break.
