For the Sunday game, the Dodgers will likely be bringing out RHP Ross Stripling. In his 5-9 record and 97.2 innings this year, Stripling has a 4.07 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP.
The Dodgers have some big hitters this year. Corey Seager entered the weekend with 156 hits, 83 runs, 22 homers and 76 RBI while Justin Turner had 146 hits, 72 runs, 21 homers and 71 RBI. On Saturday, Seager and Turner combined to go 0-for-6.
Over on the Rockies’ side, they’re going with LHP Tyler Anderson on Sunday. In his 86.0 innings and 6-6 record this year, Anderson has a 4.81 ERA with 81 Ks and 26 BBs.
Colorado has some big bats as well. Carlos Blackmon brought 210 hits, 137 runs, 37 homers and 103 RBI into the weekend, while DJ LeMahieu had 188 hits, 95 runs and 64 RBI in that time. Blackmon had two hits with an RBI on Saturday; LeMahieu posted one hit.
The Dodgers are 3-9 in their last 12 during game three of a series and 12-3 in their last 15 road games versus a left-handed starter. LA is also 1-5 in the last six Sunday games and the over is 6-2 in the Dodgers’ last eight games versus left-handed starter.
Meanwhile, the Rockies are 2-6 in their last eight during game three of a series and 0-4 in Anderson’s last four starts in game three of a series. Colorado is also 0-4 in Anderson’s last four Sunday starts and the under is 7-2 in the Rockies’ last nine Sunday games.
Anderson has been pretty good over his last four games (three starts). In that span, the only hiccup was three earned on six hits in 5.2 innings against the Padres, and in the other three he gave up zero earned on seven hits in 17.0 innings. Two of those goose-eggs were home games, so I like Anderson to pitch well and keep it going here. I’ll take the Rockies.
