The Colorado Rockies have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs.

Peter Lambert gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 6.00 ERA and 15 strikeouts this season. This will be Lambert’s first career game against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Dodgers have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 25 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 94 hits and 61 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 146 hits and 75 RBI. Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the ball, and he is 9-1 with a 1.26 ERA and 85 strikeouts this season. Ryu is 4-6 with a 4.97 ERA and 49 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 10-3 in their last 13 vs. National League West, 3-10 in their last 13 Saturday games and 17-8 in their last 25 overall. The Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 40-13 in their last 53 vs. National League West and 7-1 in Ryus last 8 starts. The Rockies are 17-35 in the last 52 meetings in Los Angeles, 7-19 in the last 26 meetings and the Dodgers are 1-4 in Ryus last 5 starts vs. Rockies. The under is 4-0 in Ryus last 4 starts overall. The over is 6-2 in Rockies last 8 overall.
Lambert was impressive through his first two career starts, but he's coming off a game against the Padres where he allowed nine hits and eight runs through three innings. Ryu has allowed just one earned run through his last 27 innings, and he's giving up a 0.87 ERA and .186 allowed batting average through 51.2 innings at home. Through 20 innings in the month of June, Ryu has a 0.45 ERA and 16 strikeouts and zero walks. Just ridiculous stuff. I have no choice but to once again back the Dodgers.
