The Los Angeles Dodgers look to sweep the Colorado Rockies early Sunday afternoon.
The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Rockies have allowed 16 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in 10 straight games. The Colorado Rockies have an ERA of 5.13 and have lost 10 of their last 15 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Carlos Gonzalez leads Colorado with 98 hits, Nolan Arenado has 66 RBI and Charlie Blackmon has 12 home runs. Jon Gray gets the nod, and he’s 5-3 with a 4.83 ERA and 83 strikeouts this season. Gray is 0-1 with a 6.52 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Dodgers have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense has heated up in this series, and they’ve won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 96 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 39 RBI and Justin Turner has 11 home runs. Brandon McCarthy takes the hill, and he was 3-0 with a 5.87 ERA and 29 strikeouts last season. McCarthy is 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 10-3 in their last 13 Sunday games and 7-15 in Grays last 22 starts. The Dodgers are 8-3 in their last 11 Sunday games and 4-0 in McCarthys last 4 starts. The Rockies are 5-15 in the last 20 meetings in Los Angeles.
I'm not real confident in backing a pitcher who has yet to pitch this season, but the Dodgers have owned this series overall and seem to be a confident bunch at home. Also, it's not like Gray has been great in his own right.
Give me the home team for the sweep.
