The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Rockies have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five straight games. The Rockies have won seven of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. DJ LeMahieu leads Colorado with 55 hits and 25 RBI while Nolan Arenado and Troy Tulowitzki have combined for 58 RBI. The Colorado Rockies have split their last eight home games. Jorge De La Rosa takes the hill, and he’s 1-2 with a 6.51 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. De La Rosa is 6-10 with a 5.48 ERA and 81 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 20-8 in their last 28 during game 2 of a series and 54-26 in their last 80 vs. National League West. The Rockies are 2-11 in their last 13 during game 2 of a series and 49-12 in De La Rosas last 61 home starts. The Rockies are 6-13 in De La Rosas last 19 starts vs. Dodgers.
De La Rosa is always tough to beat when pitching in Colorado, and the Rockies continue to score runs by the boatload. I like the home team to take game one of the doubleheader.
