Dodgers Vs. Rockies Starting Lineups: Dee Gordon Back At Leadoff

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a series win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday afternoon as the two divisional foes do battle at Coors Field in Denver. The Dodgers are 17-8 against the National League West this season, and have won five of their first six series of three games or more, with the only loss coming in Coors Field one month ago.

Nathan Eovaldi gets the call for the Dodgers, making his second start since getting called up from Double A on Tuesday. Alex White, whom the Dodgers beat on April 13 in Los Angeles, gets the call for the Rockies.

Colorado, which used seven relievers to pitch 13 innings over the last two days, called up Guillemo Moscoso from Triple A Colorado Springs before Sunday's series finale, giving them some bullpen help. Juan Nicasio, who left in the second inning Saturday with a left knee strain, was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Rockies.

Here are Sunday's starting lineups, which include Dee Gordon back at the leadoff spot for the first time since May 18:

Dodgers (33-20)

Gordon SS
Herrera 3B
Abreu LF
Ethier RF
Hairston 2B

Rockies (22-30)
