The Los Angeles Dodgers have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 122 hits and 79 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 195 hits and 114 RBI. Tony Gonsolin gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA and three strikeouts this season. This will be Gonsolin’s first career game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have won four straight games when scoring four or more runs.

The Dodgers are 18-8 in their last 26 during game 2 of a series, 48-20 in their last 68 vs. National League West and 61-30 in their last 91 overall. The Rockies are 0-7 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 1-5 in Freeland's last 6 starts. The Dodgers are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Colorado and 21-8 in the last 29 meetings. The over is 7-2 in Freeland's last 9 starts overall. The over is 7-2 in Dodgers last 9 road games.
Gonsolin didn't look good in his major league debut on the road against Arizona, allowing six hits and four earned runs in four innings. Freeland has allowed 19 hits and 10 earned runs in his last 14 innings, and he's been god awful at home where he has a 9.55 ERA and .338 allowed batting average in 33 innings. In 106 at bats against current Dodgers, Freeland is allowing a .368 batting average and three homers. The Los Angeles Dodgers should have their way with the Rockies starter in this game, so I'll side with the road team for a bounce back victory.
