The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies face off on Tuesday in Colorado for game two of their NL West series.
The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to chase the Giants in the NL West and they gained some ground on Monday with a win over the Rockies. Dee Gordon had four hits, Yasiel Puig had three hits, and Matt Kemp and A.J. Ellis each had two hits as the Dodgers scored six runs on 15 hits. Starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed three hits and a run while striking out six over 6.0 innings to get the win to go to 8-3 for the season. For Tuesday’s game the Dodgers start Zack Greinke who has lost his last two decisions. For the season Greinke has allowed 80 hits and 25 earned runs while striking out 92 over 85 innings for a 8-3 record and 2.65 ERA.

The Colorado Rockies swept the Giants over the weekend but they had no answers for the Dodgers on Monday. Wilin Roasario had two hits including a home run and Justin Morneau and Josh Rutledge each had hits as the Rockies scored one run on four hits. Starting pitcher Tyler Matzek allowed 10 hits and three runs to take the loss and fall to 1-1 for the year. For Tuesday’s game the Rockies start Jhoulys Chacin who is coming off of his first win of the season. For the year Chacin has allowed 41 hits and 23 earned runs while striking out 29 over 45.2 innings for a 1-4 record and a 4.53 ERA.
Los Angeles is 5-1 against the NL West, 4-7 at home against a team with a losing road record, and 1-4 in Greinke’s last five starts. Colorado is 6-1 in their last seven games, 6-11 in their last 17 road games, and 2-7 in Chacin’s last nine starts. Colorado is 4-1 in Chacin’s last five starts against LA.
Greinke hasn’t produced wins of late but I look for that to turn around here and for the Dodgers to get the win.
