The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their fourth straight win Monday night as they open a three-game series at Coors Field against the Colorado Rockies. This is the start of a six-game road trip for the Dodgers, who also travel to Chicago.

Aaron Harang starts Monday's series opener for Los Angeles, looking for the seventh straight quality start by a Dodgers starter. Dodgers starters on their six-game homestand had a collective 1.73 ERA and averaged just under seven innings per start.

Juan Nicasio starts the opener for the Rockies. He allowed nine runs in 10 2/3 innings in two starts against the Dodgers last year. He is 1-0 with a 4.76 ERA in four starts so far this season.

The Dodgers (16-6) are tied with the Texas Rangers for the best record in baseball. Matt Kemp set a new Dodgers franchise record with 11 home runs in April.

Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has four home runs and 11 RBI in his last six game, hitting .391/.481/.913 during that span.

Monday's 5:40 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and notes on the Dodgers, be sure to read True Blue LA.
