The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies meet Sunday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a third straight win to build on their 2-1 record. The Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last two games and 22 runs in this series. The Dodgers have won 11 of their last 13 games when scoring four or more runs. Corey Seager leads the Dodgers with eight hits and three RBI while Gavin Lux and Max Muncy have combined for 10 hits and five RBI. Julio Urias gets the ball, and he was 3-0 with a 3.27 ERA and 45 strikeouts last season. Urias is 0-1 with a 5.77 ERA and 32 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies need a win here to get back to a .500 record. The Rockies have scored 11 runs in their last two games and 19 runs in this series. The Rockies have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Trevor Story leads the Rockies with four hits while Chris Owings and Raimel Tapia have combined for five hits and three RBI. Austin Gomber gets the ball, and he was 1-1 with a 1.86 ERA and 27 strikeouts last season. Gomber is 0-1 with a 10.13 ERA and seven strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 39-12 in their last 51 Sunday games and 46-16 in their last 62 overall. The Rockies are 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 7-15 in their last 22 overall. The over is 6-2 in Dodgers last 8 overall. The over is 5-0 in Rockies last 5 overall. The Dodgers are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Colorado and 38-15 in the last 53 meetings.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to be favorites most nights and they have the edge here, but Urias hasn't had great success against these Rockies in his career and his numbers at Coors aren't great. Austin Gomber doesn't have a large sample size, but he looked decent last year in limited innings and there could be something here with the 27-year-old. Bottom line is this is Coors where anything can happen, and you can find value with the Rockies and big plus money. I'll take a shot in the dark.
