Hiroki Kuroda (10-12, 3.32) vs. Ubaldo Jimenez (18-6, 2.75).
COMMENTS: With the upper rack of the NL West bunched together tighter than sphincters at a purity ball, the Gints, Pads and Rox are looking to take advantage any way they can. The slutty Dodgers have cooperated, giving it up to SD (3-0 against L.A. so far this month) and SF (4-2). (I hope they at least bought us a few drinks beforehand.) If the Rockies don't do some major scoring this weekend, it's their own damn fault!
