|Date & Time||Sunday June 30, 2019, 3:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers -173 / Colorado Rockies +160 -- Over/Under: 13.5
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies meet Sunday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers could use a win after losing four of their last six games. The Dodgers have scored 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 16 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 101 hits and 65 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 160 hits and 89 RBI. Kenta Maeda gets the ball, and he is 7-4 with a 3.76 ERA and 83 strikeouts this season. Maeda is 6-3 with a 2.30 ERA and 82 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Rockies have scored 26 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 102 hits and 65 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 186 hits and 102 RBI. Chi Chi Gonzalez gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and four strikeouts this season. This will be Gonzalez’s second career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 5-0 in their last 5 during game 4 of a series, 43-18 in their last 61 Sunday games and 1-6 in Maedas last 7 road starts. The Rockies are 9-2 in their last 11 during game 4 of a series and 13-4 in their last 17 home games. The Dodgers are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Colorado and 20-8 in the last 28 meetings. The over is 10-4-1 in Rockies last 15 overall. The under is 3-0-2 in Maedas last 5 starts overall.
Maeda seems to be hit or miss a lot, but he's been solid against the Rockies, holding current hitters to a .238 batting average and 53 strikeouts in 130 at bats. Gonzalez has just one game under his belt in the last three years, and he wasn't great in his season debut, allowing six hits and three runs in five innings against a Giants team that can't score. I just can't get behind a pitcher who has no big league experience these past few seasons, and the Dodgers haven't lost three straight games since April 11-13. I'll back the road team.
