Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
The Dodgers have been playing some very impressive baseball of late and I look for that to continue during the rest of the series. I do not believe the Rockies will win again in this series.
Los Angeles is clearly the better team, but they did not show that on Friday. I feel they will be much sharper in this game and come out Victorious.
The Dodgers ought to able to hit around Senzatela and I think they will get to him early and often.
I will lay the 1.5 runs with the Dodgers here.
