The Colorado Rockies and the Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Saturday at Coors Field after playing a weather shortened game on Friday.
The Rockies appeared to just be getting their bats going on Friday but the game was shortened by weather and they were trailing at the time so they took the loss. Troy Tulowitzki and Corey Dickerson each had two hits and Nolan Arenado had a hit as the Rockies scored one run on six hits. Starting pitcher Eddie Butler allowed five hits and two runs while striking out three over 5.1 innings to take the loss and fall to 2-3 for the season. For Saturday’s game the Rockies start Jorge De La Rosa who has allowed 18 hits and 12 runs and striking out 19 over 12 innings for a 0-2 record and a 9.00 ERA.

Colorado is 3-8 in their last 11 home games, 26-61 as an underdog, and 1-4 in De La Rosa’s last five starts as an underdog. Los Angeles is 7-2 in their last nine games, 5-2 in game two of a series, and 20-7 in Kershaw’s last 27 starts against the NL West. Los Angeles is 17-5 in the last 22 meetings of these two.
The total is set at 8.5 and for this one I like for it to go over the total. I also have a play in the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
