Yet the Dodgers (33-32) continue to emerge from a brutally slow start thanks to a resurgent offense. The Dodgers have crushed a baseball-best 26 home runs in June, hitting three of them in seven of the nine games this month.

Colon is 2-5 lifetime against the Dodgers in 10 starts, posting a 5.28 ERA. He is 2-2 in five starts at Dodger Stadium with a 5.97 ERA.
