The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in MLB action at Coors Field.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Dodgers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 124 hits and 80 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 196 hits and 116 RBI. Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the ball, and he is 11-2 with a 1.74 ERA and 116 strikeouts this season. Ryu is 4-7 with a 5.34 ERA and 58 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Rockies have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 124 hits and 80 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 232 hits and 123 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 10-5 with a 4.88 ERA and 140 strikeouts this season. Marquez is 2-1 with a 2.89 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are 47-20 in their last 67 during game 3 of a series, 20-7 in Ryus last 27 starts and 5-2 in Ryus last 7 road starts. The Rockies are 1-9 in their last 10 vs. National League West, 8-2 in Marquezs last 10 home starts and 9-4 in Marquezs last 13 Wednesday starts. The Dodgers are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Colorado, 2-5 in Ryus last 7 starts vs. Rockies and 0-4 in Ryus last 4 road starts vs. Rockies. The over is 5-1 in Marquezs last 6 starts overall. The under is 7-3 in Ryus last 10 starts overall.

Ryu continues to be lights out this season and has to be a strong candidate for the CY Young, but he's been god awful in Coors where he has a 9.15 ERA in 20.2 innings, and that includes allowing nine hits and seven runs in four innings last month. Marquez has allowed 33 hits and 23 earned runs in his last 28.2 innings, and he has a 7.07 ERA and .336 allowed batting average in 62.1 innings at home. When you consider the numbers from both pitchers, you can't help but lean toward the over in this contest.
