Things look like they could get ugly for Colorado as they open up a 3-game set with the Dodgers over the weekend. If this series was at Coors Field, maybe the Rockies have a chance to steal one or two, but this is the still the worst road team in baseball at 15-47 away from Denver.
Los Angeles is at the point in their rotation where they have to play pitcher roulette. Julio Urias came back Tuesday, and Walker Buehler and Max Scherzer have tossed the last two games. That means bullpen game in all likelihood, but does it matter?
Colorado did pick up a rare road win in their last game, toppling the Cubs 13-10 in extra innings. That being said the Rockies also dropped two at a Chicago team that had lost 13 straight at Wrigley Field coming into the series.
Now the Rockies travel back West to Chavez Ravine where they are 1-4 on the year. Overall Colorado is 3-10 vs. the Dodgers in 2021, and have lost 38 of the last 51 head to head games overall.
The good news for Colorado is that they won’t be facing Scherzer, Buehler, Urias, or probably even David Price on Friday night. Can this offense do anything with that though, especially with Trevor Story questionable.
The off day on Thursday was huge for the Rockies, who used 8 relievers after German Marquez was tagged for 5 runs in 3 innings on a hot and humid day in Chicago. Kyle Freeland (4-6, 4.25 ERA) will try and give Bud Black another outing like his 7.0 IP 10 K performance in a win over Arizona last time out – and that was at Coors Field.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The big thing working against the Dodgers on Friday night is if they’ll suffer a letdown. L.A just finished up a sweep over the rival Padres – in San Diego – and it would be really easy to take the foot off the gas with the lowly Rockies coming to town.
The Dodgers have won 12 of their last 13, but one major reason not to get complacent in the series opener is because they are somehow still down 2.5 games to the Giants in the West. L.A has won three in a row, but that’s outdone by San Francisco rattling off five in a row.
Los Angeles also doesn’t know what combination of pitchers they’re going to throw out there on Friday night, but they do know who they’ll face. The Dodgers managed just 3 runs over 6.0 IP against Freeland at Coors Field on July 17th, and then faced him the next time in the rotation and he allowed only 1 ER over 7.0 IP at Chavez Ravine. L.A did win both those games however.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
If the odds are +200 or better, the Rockies are worth a small play for an upset. Sure Colorado is horrible on the road, but LAD is ripe for a letdown game after sweeping and demoralizing the hated Padres. Freeland has thrown well vs. LA this season and the Rockies offense will be facing the Dodgers in a bullpen game.
