The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Saturday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Colorado Rockies need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Rockies have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Rockies have lost five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 43 hits and 24 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 53 hits and 31 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 2.56 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 2-4 with a 4.26 ERA and 38 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 10 games. The Dodgers are 18-4 this season when scoring four or more runs. Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with 30 hits and 21 RBI while Justin Turner and Corey Seager have combined for 53 hits and 37 RBI. Dustin May gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. This will be May’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 6-1 in their last 7 Saturday games, 7-2 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The Dodgers are 39-15 in their last 54 games as a favorite, 63-25 in their last 88 home games and 39-17 in their last 56 overall. The under is 7-3 in Rockies last 10 road games. The over is 6-2 in Dodgers last 8 overall. The Rockies are 14-40 in the last 54 meetings in Los Angeles and 17-35 in the last 52 meetings.
Kyle Freeland has allowed seven runs and 24 hits in his last 25.2 innings while Dustin May has allowed six runs and 15 hits in his last 16.1 innings. The Dodgers are a team you probably shouldn't be looking to step in front of often and the Rockies have lost five straight. However, we're getting a hot and consistent pitcher in Freeland for nearly two times our money. I can't pass up the value here. Give me the Rockies and the potential big payout.
