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 >> 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.
Chase Utley hit two home runs Tuesday, including a grand slam, in his first game as a visiting player in Philadelphia. The Dodgers beat the Phillies 15-5 and took over first place later in the day when the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the San Francisco Giants. The box score is here.
Utley, 37, said he wants to play next year.
The latest adjustment to the Dodgers’ starting rotation will see Ross Stripling start Thursday in Philadelphia, followed by Bud Norris Friday in Cincinnati and Brett Anderson on Saturday.
