The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Colorado Rockies need a win to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Rockies have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have lost eight straight games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 162 hits and 75 RBI while Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story have combined for 313 hits and 183 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 8-9 with a 6.95 ERA and 56 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 2-0 with a 4.42 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last eight games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 150 hits and 103 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 246 hits and 152 RBI. Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the ball, and he is 12-5 with a 2.35 ERA and 137 strikeouts this season. Ryu is 4-7 with a 4.86 ERA and 59 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 17-38 in their last 55 road games, 2-7 in their last 9 Wednesday games and 1-4 in Senzatela’s last 5 starts. The Dodgers are 5-0 in their last 5 Wednesday games, 53-24 in their last 77 during game 3 of a series and 14-5 in Ryu’s last 19 starts. The Rockies are 14-37 in the last 51 meetings in Los Angeles and 7-19 in the last 26 meetings. The under is 18-8 in Dodgers last 26 home games. The under is 12-5-1 in Senzatela’s last 18 road starts.
Senzatela has allowed 36 hits and 33 earned runs in his last 17.2 innings, and he has a 6.71 ERA and .316 allowed batting average on the road. Ryu has allowed 30 hits and 18 runs in his last 21.2 innings, and he has a 1.51 ERA and .205 allowed batting average at home. Ryu has been hit around his last three starts, all of which resulted in Dodgers losses. However, Senzatela has been absolute garbage this season, allowing a .316 batting average on the season and a .893 OPS. Against current Dodgers in 78 at bats, Senzatela is allowing a .282 batting average with three homers and 11 walks. I love taking long shots and would usually consider the underdog with a baseball price this ridiculous, but there’s no way I can get behind the Rockies here. Give me the Dodgers and the RL to trim down that ML.
