The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies will face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Coors Field.
After the Rockies were able to win the first game on Thursday, the Dodgers bounced back in a big way winning 11-6.
On Friday it was the Dodgers offense that was strong early scoring four runs in the first two innings and that was the difference as they never looked back. Justin Turner was the star of the show on Friday driving in three runs. In this game for the Dodgers it’s going to be about running up the score again and trying to make this a high scoring affair.
On the other side of this matchup is the Rockies who did find success scoring on Friday night, but it was too little too late as they lost by five runs. All six runs for the Rockies were in the seventh inning. The Rockies were led by Charlie Blackmon and Ryan McMahon who both were able to drive in two runs.
On the mound for the Dodgers will be Walker Buehler who was strong again last year finishing the season with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 3.44 in his eight appearances.
On the mound for the Rockies will be Jon Gray who had some major struggles during the 2020 season. Gray finished with a 2-4 record and an ERA of 6.69 in eight appearances. Gray is facing a very good offense in this game, and if the Rockies want any chance to keep this game close, they are going to need a good outing from Gray.
The Dodgers are 37-15 in the last 52 meetings played between the two teams. The under is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings played between the two teams in Colorado. The Dodgers are 5-2 in their last seven meetings in Colorado. Colorado is 7-15 in their last 22 home games.
These are both games that have went over the total on Thursday and Friday, and that will be the case again in this one. Look for plenty of runs by both teams, and for this game to go well over the total. Back the over.
