The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies meet Friday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Dodgers have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Dodgers have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with 58 hits and 36 RBI while Corey Seager and AJ Pollock have combined for 101 hits and 61 RBI. The Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing seven of their last nine games. The Rockies have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Rockies have lost eight of their last nine games when scoring three or less runs. Trevor Story leads the Rockies with 58 hits and 25 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado have combined for 102 hits and 63 RBI. Ryan Castellani gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 4.46 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. This will be Castellani’s second career game against the Dodgers.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Ryan Castellani has allowed four earned runs and nine hits in his last 12 innings, and he's allowing a .230 batting average and .347 on base percentage this season. In 20 innings at home this season, Ryan Castellani has a 4.95 ERA and is allowing a .253 batting average with 10 walks and 16 strikeouts. Castellani has had control issues this season and the Rockies simply aren't playing good baseball right now. The Los Angeles Dodgers remain one of the hotter teams in the league and have the red hot offense that's usually always a handful to face in Coors. The Rockies offense just can't get going right now and it makes them tough to trust against some of the better teams in baseball.
I'll side with the Dodgers and the RL to shave down what's likely going to be an expensive ML price.
