Yasmany Tomas took his last practice swings, packed his bat and carried his oversized No. 24 duffel bag toward the clubhouse. ”Where’s the fat guy?” the 24-year-old Tomas asked, suddenly uneasy with the small frenzy. He called again for his interpreter and full-time assistant, Ariel Prieto. Realizing his countryman was on another field at the Arizona Diamondbacks practice facility, Tomas paused, then walked toward the fans alone.

When he comes off the disabled list, Jorge De La Rosa will attempt to help the Colorado Rockies bounce back from a weekend sweep by adding to his all-time leading win total at Coors Field. The San Diego Padres’ Odrisamer Despaigne, meanwhile, will try to snap an extended road losing streak Monday night in what could prove his final start in the near future. An ailing left groin kept De La Rosa out to begin this season, but he’s expected to end his DL stint in the opener to this four-game series. He’s 45-14 with a 3.98 ERA all-time in Denver, and his 69 overall wins with Colorado (7-5) have him three shy of matching Aaron Cook’s franchise record.

Howie Kendrick, Scott Van Slyke and rookie Joc Pederson hit sixth-inning home runs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers stretched their winning streak to seven by beating the Colorado Rockies 7-0 Sunday.

Eddie Butler (1-1) allowed two runs and six hits over five innings. All three Dodgers homers came off rookie Scott Oberg, who allowed his first five batters to reach base after relieving Butler and was charged with five runs.

Zack Greinke has earned Don Mattingly’s confidence during his time with the Los Angeles Dodgers. After striking out Nick Hundley, Greinke gave up a two-run homer to DJ LeMahieu and was done for the night. It also was his first in 53 career at-bats at Dodger Stadium. ”I knew I was probably his last batter, so I didn’t want him leaving on a good note,” said LeMahieu, who is batting .463 through his first 11 games.

Turns out, the Arizona Diamondbacks are not forcing fans sitting behind home plate to change if they’re wearing clothing that supports the opposing team. The team caused a minor stir last Sunday, when an usher was seen talking to a fan wearing a Los Angeles Dodgers’ jersey in the premium seats that can be seen on television. After a short discussion, the fan took off his jersey and replaced it with a Diamondbacks jersey. A fan later gave him the Diamondbacks’ jersey in jest and he played along, the team said.

It took Clayton Kershaw three starts to get his first victory and he still is trying to find his groove after putting together one of the greatest seasons any pitcher ever had. The reigning NL MVP gave up two home runs against the Colorado Rockies, but struck out 12 over six innings Friday night to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 7-3. The only other Dodgers to fan 12 in a six-inning start were Sandy Koufax (1963), Darren Dreifort (2003), Chad Billingsley (2008), Charlie Haeger (2010) and Hyun-Jin Ryu (2013). The three-time Cy Young Award winner wasn’t nearly as dominating against the Rockies as he was last June, when he no-hit them.
