Dodgers vs. Rockies game preview: L.A. goes for sweep, 5th straight win

The Los Angeles Dodgers know that every game is a must-win. So that's what they're doing -- winning them.

The Dodgers will go for their fifth-straight win on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies as their recent string of wins has pulled them within two games of the St. Louis Cardinals for the final Wild Card spot in the National League. The Dodgers have four games remaining in order to close the gap and need some help, like they got from the Washington Nationals on Saturday as they knocked off the Cardinals in 10 innings.

The Dodgers will hand the ball to Josh Beckett on Sunday. Beckett is 1-3 with a 3.16 ERA since being traded to the Dodgers.

Beckett will face Rockies lefty Jorge De La Rosa, who is 0-1 with a 9.45 ERA. This will be his third start since returning from Tommy John Surgery.
