LA Dodgers vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I’m on the Rockies in this one. It didn’t come to fruition on Saturday, but the Rockies had their chances and I’m going to take another shot here. I have never been much of an Austin Gomber fan, and realistically, the last couple of seasons, Gomber never really gave me a reason to be, getting lit up more often than not whenever he took the mound. However this season, he’s found a new level to his game and whether or not it’s sustainable, I’m not sure, but he’s pitching really well right now and I’ll stick with him to secure the upset win here.
