The Los Angeles Dodgers still haven’t clinched the NL West as they lost to the Rockies on Saturday. Andre Ethier hit a home run, Justin Turner had two hits, and Chase Utley had a hit as the Dodgers scored six runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Bret Anderson allowed 10 hits and six runs while striking out one over 4.0 innings to not factor in the decision as Yimi Garcia took the loss. For Sunday’s game the Dodgers start Alex Wood who has allowed 50 hits and 24 earned runs while striking out 4 over 58 innings for a 4-5 record and a 3.72 ERA since joining the Dodgers.
Colorado is 5- 1 against he NL West, 3-5 in their last eight home games, and 2-8 in Rusin’s last 10 starts against a team with a winning record. Los Angeles is 5-1 on the road against a left-handed starter, 2-7 in their last nine games, and 1-5 in their last six games following a loss. Los Angele is 22-11 in the last 233 meetings with Colorado.
The Rockies look dialed in right now and I am looking for similar results to the first two games of this series with the Rockies winning.
