The Dodgers did not get off to the start they were hoping for yesterday and will look to avenge their loss against this Rockies team to setup a rubber match on Saturday while the Rockies will look to lock up a series win.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The dodgers will get to try and see how Trevor Bauer does in Coors Field, as their ace Clayton Kershaw did not fair so good in yesterday’s loss pitching just 5.2 innings and allowing 10 hits and 5 earned runs.
That was not the start Kershaw was looking for even taking into account that the game was played in Coors and Bauer now gets an excellent opportunity to garner some positive headlines early on in his Dodgers career.
The Dodgers did only score 5 runs in that first game which is a bit surprising, as they no doubt have the best batting lineup in all of baseball with the likes of Betts, Seager, Muncy and Bellinger on the roster. I would look out for those guys to get going here, as this team expects much more than what hey did yesterday and
The Colorado Rockies are not likely to be playoff contenders this year, but it must have felt good for this squad to get off to the start they did and they will now come into this second game of the series with both momentum, and belief that they can compete with the Wold Series favorites.
The one guy who will be in an awesome matchup with Bauer on the mound is Charlie Blackmon who has unreal numbers against righties at Coors field and I think he can get to Bauer despite how great former Cleveland Indian can be.
Antonio Senzatela will get the start here and he actually had some decent starts versus the eventual champions last year, so who is to stay he cannot pitch well again here despite the odds being heavily against that outcome.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
Like many people, I like Trevor Bauer a lot, and think he can have success against much of this Rockies batting lineup and that should put this Dodgers team in a decent position to pick up the win. The Dodgers are massive favorites here, though, and so I am going to go with them on the runline to improve that price a bit, as I think they can win by a margin of 2 especially given the run scoring dynamics in a place like Coors Field.
Antonio Senzatela was decent against the Dodgers last year, but I think this could be a rough outing, as I think the dodgers will come out hungry and probably get Senzatela out of the game before the 5th inning.
