LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Ross Stripling knows he will have to weather the early going Sunday if he wants to get back to his winning ways.

Stripling will face a Colorado Rockies team that is known for fast starts. The Rockies lead all of baseball with 70 runs scored in the opening inning. They also lead the majors with 24 first-inning home runs.

The Rockies are focused on trying to counter the Dodgers’ offensive muscle. Manager Bud Black is preaching to his pitchers to be aggressive.

“We knew coming in (the Dodgers) had power Baker Mayfield Color Rush Jersey ,” Black said. “We know that you have to keep the ball out of the middle of the plate. We have been attacking them and going after them to get into more favorable counts. That’s the message we send to all teams and we have to do it again (Sunday).”

Keeping opponents in check early is one of the many things Stripling has excelled at during his breakout season. The Texas native has allowed one first-inning run in his 11 previous starts, and two extra-base hits.

Rockies starter Chad Bettis also must prepare for a potential volatile first inning. Not only do the Rockies score a ton early, they also have given up 70 runs in the first inning to lead the majors. Their 21 first-inning home runs allowed are second-most in baseball.

The good news for Colorado is that they are on the road where runs and long balls are harder to come by than at Coors Field. And Bettis is the perfect example.

Bettis 5-1 overall with a 5.07 ERA, with all his decisions coming on the road, where he has a 2.72 ERA. At the start of play Saturday, Bettis’ five road victories were tied for third in the NL. He posted his sixth quality start on the road Tuesday at San Francisco, but did not get a decision.

There is added pressure on Bettis after the Rockies demoted Opening Day starter Jon Gray to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday. In 17 starts this season, Gray was a disappointing 7-7 with a 5.77 ERA.

“This was the right time to get Jon to Triple-A to work on some things, not so much mechanically, but mentally, and to realize the inconsistencies that have been happening this season,” manager Bud Black told The Denver Post after the Rockies optioned Gray.

Stripling has been a bit more consistent.

In his past three outings Youth Da'Ron Payne Jersey , he is 1-1 with a no-decision. He beat the Giants, then lost to the Cubs despite giving up only three runs on June 20. Six days later, he went five innings and gave up one run in the no-decision.

“He’s been fantastic,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of his starter. “For him to not be as sharp as usual and to keep (the Cubs) to one run in five innings is a credit to him. He gives us a chance every single time he takes the mound. He’s done more than exceed our expectations.”

After rolling through most of June behind an offense that hit a franchise-record 55 home runs for a single month, the Dodgers have looked less invincible in recent days. They split a four-game home series against the Cubs and now have lost two consecutive games to the Rockies.

The Rockies will not look back at their overall June play so fondly, but they ended the month on a three-game win streak.

Colorado went 11-16 in the month. Nolan Arenado was a bright spot as he is the reigning NL Player of the Week. Arenado had home runs in seven of 10 games before play Saturday, a run that included a homer in four consecutive contests.

The angst that permeated the Denver Broncos for two straight summers of quarterback competitions is noticeably absent from team headquarters this year.

Veteran Case Keenum is the unquestioned starter and that's allowed the Broncos to install their offense without having to take different skillsets into account.

That certainty has had a ripple effect on the entire roster.

"That makes a huge difference, especially for the players, for your receivers, for your offensive line, hearing the same cadence every day, working with your same quarterback every day http://www.falconsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-isaiah-oliver-jersey ," coach Vance Joseph said Thursday. "It's huge for Billy (Musgrave) as a coordinator to build his system around one quarterback.

"Having Case as the starter has definitely helped matters."

A more relaxed attitude that was evident all spring culminated with Von Miller wearing fake dreads under his helmet and again at the podium as the Broncos wrapped up their offseason program.

Fifty feet away, quarterback Paxton Lynch , the 2016 first-round draft pick who has started just four games in two years, displayed a fresh maturity in his first interview since being relegated to understudy duties in March.

"I was really excited actually when we got Case, for the fact that he's a veteran guy who's been through it a little bit. He's had his ups and downs. But the way he carries himself and the way he handles himself, he's a pro and that only benefits me and other guys in that locker room," Lynch said.

While many fans may have given up on Lynch, general manager John Elway and Joseph are still his biggest boosters , suggesting he still has a bright future in the NFL.

"It means a lot, especially the head coach and the big guy upstairs, too, having my back Youth Oakland Raiders Jerseys ," Lynch said. "... Whenever I get the opportunity to go out there and take over, I'm going to be ready for that."

Lynch's confidence level remains high even after losing out to Trevor Siemian twice and now having to fend off Chad Kelly to win the No. 2 quarterback job in training camp. (Siemian is now the Vikings' backup).

"There's always room for improvement," Lynch said after a spotty 7-on-7 drill Thursday. "I obviously believe that I can go out and play right now, but that's not my job right now. Case is the guy and I'm doing everything I can to make myself better and make the team better.

"Obviously, I'm confident in what I can do and confident in my abilities. So, I'm hanging my hat on that."

At the team's final offseason practice, Miller donned the same disguise he wore recently while working as an undercover waiter at a upscale Denver steakhouse .

"It's just the last day of camp, it's just like the last day of school, so I try to mix it up, I lost a bet," Miller said.

He wouldn't divulge the nature of the wager.

"I can't really talk about it, but I lost it Authentic Sergei Bobrovsky Jersey ," Miller said. "And then I started thinking about it, man, it would be cool with dreads. Some of the best pass rushers in the league have dreads, Melvin Ingram, Jadeveon Clowney, so maybe that will rub off on me today."

Miller had fun wearing the wig during an undercover appearance at Guard and Grace in Denver to promote the club's "Taste of the Broncos" charity event later this summer

"I think after about like 20 minutes they knew it was me," Miller said. "But at first, I was making guys mad, eating off peoples' plates and taking shots with people. It was fun."

Miller said he used to wear the wig out to dinner and to the movies to blend in.

"But now I'm busted," he said. "Now I've got to switch it up."
