MLB | Colorado Rockies (39-42) at Los Angeles Dodgers (43-37)
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

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

The Colorado Rockies look for a victory here after splitting their last 10 games. The Rockies have scored 11 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won six of their last eight games when scoring more than two runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 88 hits and 56 RBI while Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 168 hits and 93 RBI. Tyler Anderson gets the ball, and he is 4-3 with a 4.62 ERA and 77 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 2-3 with a 4.85 ERA and 33 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to keep the ball rolling after winning 10 of their last 15 games. The Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 13 of their last 16 games when scoring more than one run. Matt Kemp leads the Dodgers with 75 hits and 47 RBI while Chris Taylor and Cody Bellinger have combined for 142 hits and 70 RBI. Rich Hill gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 5.30 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. Hill is 0-3 with a 7.52 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Rockies are 3-13 in their last 16 vs. National League West, 6-2 in Andersons last 8 road starts and 1-6 in Andersons last 7 starts. The Dodgers are 11-1 in their last 12 during game 1 of a series, 26-10 in their last 36 Friday games and 2-5 in Hills last 7 starts. The Rockies are 11-27 in the last 38 meetings in Los Angeles, 0-5 in the last 5 meetings and 0-6 in Andersons last 6 starts vs. Dodgers.

The Colorado Rockies can't string wins together but continue to produce runs offensively, while the Dodgers offense is the main reason for this sudden turn around in their season. Anderson has allowed three or more runs in seven of his last nine starts, while Hill has allowed three or more runs in five of his eight starts. Anderson is allowing a .259 batting average on the season and Hill is allowing a .301 batting average at home with a .271 batting average overall. Hard not to like there being a ton of runs in this game and backing the over.

Pick:
Over 7.5
