The Los Angeles Dodgers look to get back in the win column at Coors Field versus the Colorado Rockies.
It looks as if the Dodgers are gearing up to go on the long hot streak we aw after the All Star break a season ago. If they do the rest of the National League West is in trouble including first place San Francisco. The Dodgers fell to Colorado 8-7 Saturday yet still have won seven of eleven where the arms and bats have generally been on the same page. Dan Haren was hit hard with all eight runs plated over five frames with Hanley Ranirezz leading a late rally with a pair of RBI'sand two runs scored. The Dodgers are scheduled to send Josh Beckett to the bump versus Colorado on Sunday. Beckett is 5-5 on the season with a 2.37 ERA with just 72 hits allowed over 98.2 frames.

To say Colorado has fallen off the map in the past month or so would probably be an accurate statement. Despit the win on Saturday the Rockies have still dropped ten of 12 where the pitching and scoring have strugglrd to produce. The Rockies offense saved the day Saturday with starter Jorge De La Hoya giving up two runs through six frames with Nick Masset letting Los Angeles back in the game with four runs without recording an out. The bats totaled 12 hits with Corey Dickerson and Drew Stubbs going deep while Wilin Rosario kn ocked in two more. Rookie Yohan Flande makes his third career start when he faces the Dodgers for the first time. In his two starts Flande is 0-1 with an ERA just north of six.
Even though Colorado hasn't been winning they are always a team to worry about because their offense has potential. I'm backing Beckett and Los Angeles because Flande has zero track record...
