The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers / Colorado Rockies --- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The NL West leading Los Angeles Dodgers look for another victory as they welcome the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.
The Rockies look to get their bats hot against the impressive Rich Hill who will get the call for the Dodgers in this one as he will look to win his 13th game of the season and lower his miniscule ERA down from 2.05 against a Rockies side that will counter with Tyler Anderson. The Rockies are an interesting team as they have one of the best offenses in baseball but they are well back of a playoff spot now despite looking like a threat at the all-star break. Colorado will need to go back to the drawing board in the offseason but for now they will be out to get some of their young pitchers some action and that includes Anderson who will be out for his sixth win of the year.

The Dodgers meanwhile added to their win total yesterday and are favoured again here with Hill on the mound and while he has had some issues with blisters since coming to Los Angeles he is having a remarkable season. Los Angeles has been on a tear since the all-star break and look like they are going to wrap up the NL West crown but they need to find a way to get over the hump in the playoffs as they have been knocking on the door for years and haven’t been able to break through.
The Rockies are 1-4 in Anderson’s last five games, 1-4 in their last five overall, and 4-1 in their last five Sunday games while the Dodgers are 4-1 in their last five overall, 42-16 in their last 58 home games, and 46-20 in their last 66 home games against a team with a losing road record. The Rockies are a nice group at the plate but are in tough here against Hill who should have enough to get the Dodgers another big win.
