The Dodgers have a comfortable lead in the NL West, 12 games ahead of the Rockies.

Rookie Peter Lambert sets the tone, getting the start for the Rockies in the series opener against Dodgers' right-hander Walker Buehler, who is enjoying a breakout season. The four Dodgers starters in the series are a combined 31-7.

Rockies shortstop Trevor Story is eligible to be activated from the Injury List on Sunday, but that could be a bit of a rush.

The Rockies are 5-5 in last 10 games, which includes three walk-off losses at Dodger Stadium last weekend.

The Dodgers have won the first six games of this year's series, including an April week at Coors Field, where the Dodgers outscored the Rockies by a combined 29-14.

The Rockies have lost the last 10 games against the Dodgers. They are 72 games below .500 against the Dodgers all-time.
