The Rockies are 6-13 in their last 19 vs. National League West, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 7-21 in Grays last 28 road starts. The Dodgers are 42-12 in their last 54 home games, 23-7 in their last 30 during game 1 of a series and 44-8 in Kershaws last 52 starts. The Rockies are 19-44 in the last 63 meetings in Los Angeles, 1-5 in the last 6 meetings and the under is 20-8 in the last 28 meetings.
The Dodgers went from not being able to lose a game for months to losing every time they take the field pretty much the last two weeks. Good news is the Rockies have had their struggles as well, and the Dodgers are throwing out Kershaw. You know, the pitcher who hasn't allowed a run in his last three starts and has a 2.39 ERA at home this season with a batting average of .189. The price is never cheap with the best pitcher in baseball, but this is a game the Dodgers use to snap the skid.
