Dodgers at Rockies, 5:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA
It’s a pitching mismatch, but the teams still have to go out and score runs and play defense. Clayton Kershaw brings his June Pitcher of the Month credentials and his 9-2 record with a 2.04 ERA to the hill against Jair Jurrjens, who has spent the entire season pitching in AAA for the Reds’ Louisville farm team. He was an All-Star in 2011 for the Braves but has fizzled since, playing mostly in the minors since the middle of 2012. This season he has a 4.46 ERA over 34 1/3 innings at Louisville.
Ramirez is in the lineup, so I guess they’ve decided not to put him on the DL and just hope the three-day All Star Break is enough time for his shoulder and legs to recover.
