Rockies Not Enjoying Their Trips To Dodger Stadium

If the Colorado Rockies want to keep pace in the dogfight that is the NL West, they will need to start picking up wins in the City of Angels. The Rockies have gone 1-8 SU and 2-7 against the runline in their past nine games at Dodger Stadium, including a 4-2 loss in their most recent visit. The battle for division supremacy kicks off when the Rockies and LA Dodgers open a three-game set Friday.

Shark Bites
  • DJ LeMahieu is hitting .516 with 9 runs and 7 RBIs during his current 7-game hitting streak.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 18 of the Rockies' last 25 games against the Dodgers.
  • The Dodgers are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games against left-handed starters.

The Rockies will start rookie Kyle Freeland, who has looked stellar in his previous two outings against the Dodgers. The young lefty has allowed just eight hits and two runs in his 10.0 innings of work against LA batters this season, however, Freeland’s last start against the Dodgers came on April 18.

Alex Wood, who starts for the Dodgers in this one, has still yet to pick up a loss this season with a 7-0 record. The last Dodgers pitcher to go undefeated through his first 10 starts of a season was Orel Hershiser in 1985. Wood, 26, has been one of the best pitchers in baseball with a 1.90 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP and a 10.5 K/9. In one start against the Rockies this season, he pitched six innings of no-run ball with 10 strikeouts and just one walk.
