Dodgers face Rockies with pitching questions

After experimenting with pitching strategies this week, and nearly coming away with a sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays while doing it, the Los Angeles Dodgers figure to return to a more traditional look at home against the Colorado Rockies.

One problem, though. The Dodgers still have not announced a starter for Friday's series opener as they sort through the pieces of their two-game set against the American League wild-card-contending Rays. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw (14-5, 3.05 ERA) is the likely starter.

The Dodgers used eight pitchers to cover nine innings in a victory Tuesday, then nine pitches to cover 11 innings in a defeat Wednesday, with one worrisome theme still resonating. Closer Kenley Jansen blew his eighth save opportunity while his ERA rose to 3.81.
