A few quick notes before the Dodgers begin their second Colorado-or-bust, three-game road trip.
The Dodgers will play three games in 48 hours (weather permitting) between tonight and Wednesday afternoon, then fly home.
San Francisco is off tonight, so there will be a half-game added or subtracted from the Dodgers’ two-game lead in the National League West this evening. The Dodgers will gain back the off day on the Giants on Thursday.
After two games at home Tuesday and Wednesday vs. Arizona, San Francisco travels to Wrigley Field to play four games with the Cubs.
