The Los Angeles Dodgers look for consistency after splitting their last eight games. The Dodgers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense has heated up recently, and they’ve won six straight games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 65 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 28 RBI and Joc Pederson has eight home runs. Julio Urias takes the hill, and he’s 0-1 with a 9.39 ERA and seven strikeouts this season. This will be Urias’ first career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 19-47 in their last 66 during game 2 of a series and 2-8 in Butlers last 10 starts. The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 10-4 in their last 14 overall. The Rockies are 3-13 in the last 16 meetings in Los Angeles.
Urias should be more comfortable with two starts now under his belt, and it also helps that he'll be at home for the first time. There's no question Urias has the talent to really start putting up W's on the board. I like the Dodgers here, as this likely will be the best performance yet from Urias.
