The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Dodgers have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 100 hits and 64 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 155 hits and 84 RBI. Clayton Kershaw gets the ball, and he is 7-1 with a 3.07 ERA and 75 strikeouts this season. Kershaw is 22-7 with a 3.16 ERA and 270 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Rockies have scored 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Colorado Rockies have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 97 hits and 62 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 181 hits and 99 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 8-5 with a 3.92 ERA and 103 strikeouts this season. Gray is 3-5 with a 4.98 ERA and 63 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games, 37-15 in Kershaw's last 52 road starts and 84-27 in Kershaw's last 111 starts. The Rockies are 7-3 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series, 3-11 in their last 14 Saturday games and 6-1 in Gray's last 7 starts. The Dodgers are 20-6 in the last 26 meetings, 27-6 in Kershaw's last 33 starts vs. Rockies and 10-1 in Kershaw's last 11 road starts vs. Rockies. The over is 9-4-1 in Rockies last 14 overall. The over is 7-2 in Kershaw's last 9 starts overall.
Kershaw has been good this season, but he has yet to transform into the pitcher we're used to seeing where he's nearly shutting out teams on a consistent basis. You can hit Kershaw this year more than normal. Gray has been good this season at Coors, but he's allowing a .350 batting average with six homers in 117 at bats against current Dodgers hitters. Based on the way the first two games have played out, there's no reason to think the runs will slowdown in this crazy park. I want to take the over in this game, even with Kershaw pitching.
