The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Sunday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.

The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Rockies have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 96 hits and 62 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 176 hits and 97 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 6-5 with a 5.09 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 1-0 with a 6.43 ERA and six strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for another win to build on a five-game winning streak. The Dodgers have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers haven’t lost a game when scoring four or more runs since May 5. 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. Kenta Maeda gets the ball, and he is 7-4 with a 3.87 ERA and 77 strikeouts this season. Maeda is 6-3 with a 2.26 ERA and 76 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Rockies are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series, 5-2 in Senzatelas last 7 road starts and 4-1 in Senzatelas last 5 starts. The Dodgers are 40-12 in their last 52 home games, 43-16 in their last 59 during game 3 of a series and 5-1 in Maedas last 6 home starts. The Rockies are 17-35 in the last 52 meetings in Los Angeles and 7-19 in the last 26 meetings. The under is 17-6-3 in Maedas last 26 home starts. The under is 11-3 in Senzatelas last 14 road starts.

Senzatela has had some solid starts are and there, but when he's off, he's really off, and he's allowing a .293 batting average on the season, so he's not the toughest pitcher in the world to hit. Maeda has a 1.95 ERA and .148 allowed batting average in 37 innings at home this season. Maeda is also holding current Rockies hitters to a .238 batting average with 47 strikeouts in 130 at bats. Throw in the Los Angeles Dodgers offense that's heating up and with the way they won last night, and I have to back the Dodgers yet again. 

Pick:
Los Angeles Dodgers -213
