DENVER >> The Dodgers’ woes with runners in scoring position continued Wednesday afternoon in a 7-0 loss to the Colorado Rockies despite a respectable outing from starter Ross Stripling. The box score is here.
DENVER >> Dave Roberts dropped maybe his best one-liner of the season prior to the first game of today’s doubleheader between the Dodgers and Colorado Rockies.
It came up in the context of Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill, who warmed up to start Tuesday night’s game, only to see the game postponed due to rain immediately after the Rockies took the field in anticipation of the first pitch:
DENVER >> After a rain delay of more than two hours, tonight’s game between the Dodgers and Colorado Rockies was postponed until tomorrow. The two teams will play a split doubleheader at 12:10 p.m. and 5:10 p.m. Pacific Time.
Tickets for tonight’s game will be good for admission to the second game tomorrow.
Dodgers right-hander Ross Stripling will oppose Rockies left-hander Tyler Anderson in Game 1. Left-hander Rich Hill, who was scheduled to start Tuesday’s game, will oppose Rockies right-hander Jeff Hoffman in Game 2.
Both teams will have a 26th player, a pitcher, available for the second game under MLB rules. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the team hasn’t decided who will be added to the roster.
A close game got away from the Dodgers late, and Corey Seager got good news on his postgame x-rays following an 8-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies. The box score is here.
If Bud Norris goes on the 15-day disabled list because of his back injury, the identity of Saturday’s starter against the Boston Red Sox is TBD.
