The Dodgers are drawing +130 money line odds ($100 wins $130) to win today’s game and thus the series.
Colorado suffered a 7-5 extra innings loss in its series opener with the Dodgers, but it evened the series yesterday with a 7-6 extra innings victory.
The Rockies will attempt to take the series and earn their 30th win of the season today with lefty hurler Jorge De La Rosa toeing the rubber. The nine year veteran is having another solid campaign for Colorado as he enters this afternoon’s game with a 3.16 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 11 starts.
De La Rosa has been especially tough over his last five starts, allowing just 25 hits, seven earned runs, and nine walks for a 2.09 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 5-0 Rockies record. The Mexico native is also 4-0 with a 2.42 ERA in four starts at Coors Field this season.
The Dodgers, who presently occupy the cellar in the NL West with a 23-31 record, will counter De La Rosa with rookie sensation Hyun-Jin Ryu. The South Korean southpaw has been everything advertised, producing a 6-2 record to go along with a 2.89 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 11 starts.
Ryu is 2-0 in his last two appearances; he allowed just eight hits and two earned runs over 16.1 innings of work in 9-2 and 3-0 wins over the Brewers and Angels, respectively.
