These 2 teams have split the first 2 games of this 3 game series with the Dodgers winning in Game 1 and the Rockies winning Game 2 5-4 in a 16-inning marathon.
The Dodgers had their 3-game winning streak snapped in their last game, but they are in control of the NL West 7.5 games up on the San Francisco Giants. On the other side of the coin the Rockies are in the basement of the division 22.5 games back of the Dodgers.
However, they did beat the Dodgers in their last game and have won 2 of 3 overall.
The Dodgers have won 21 of their last 28 games facing the Rockies.
It is the same old song and dance for the Rockies, as they have a legit offense, but their pitching has struggled. This season Colorado ranks 6th in runs scored, but dead last in the Majors in team ERA.
Jorge De La Rosa gets the starting nod for the Rockies and Colorado has won 3 straight with him on the mound. In his last outing he gave up 3 earned runs in 5 innings in a 5-4 win over the San Diego Padres.
Before his last start De La Rosa had only given up 1 earned run in his previous 2 outings.
The Rockies are 4-1 in De La Rosa’s last 5 starts against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers rank 18th in the Majors in runs scored, but their pitching has been their strong suit this season ranking 5th in team ERA.
Alex Wood goes for the Dodgers tonight and to say he wants to forget about his last outing would be a major understatement.
He was hammered for 6 earned runs and did not make it past the 2nd inning in a 12-4 blowout loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Dodgers have lost 2 of their last 3 games when Wood has gotten the starting nod.
Tonight will be Wood’s first start against the Rockies while in a Dodgers’ uniform.
While with the Braves earlier this season he faced the Rockies, who pounded him for 7 earned runs in in 5 innings in an 11-3 Atlanta loss.
The Dodgers have scored 4 runs in each of their last 3 games.
