The Dodgers’ recent offensive struggles have been well documented. After taking three of four at home against the Cubs things seems OK in Dodgertown. However, it wasn’t because of offensive production that they were winning ballgames. In fact, LA has scored a total of five runs in three games. Way off from what we’ve gotten used to seeing from the Angelinos.
Now, they must go into a hostile Coors Field and put a stop to the Rockies’ serge, which has cut the Dodgers NL West lead to just 3 games. It may all seem bad for Dodger fans but it isn’t. In six games at the Rockies, LA has posted a combined 47 runs, that’s 7.8 runs per game scored.
"It's certainly a different type of ballpark," Dodgers manager Joe Torre said. "The ball doesn't fly like it used to, but still it's a little bit different dynamic over there. We've played two series over there, and hopefully we can go in there on Tuesday and play our game."
Tonight’s pitching matchup features: LAD’s LHP Clayton Kershaw (8-7, 2.96 ERA) vs. COL’s RHP Jason Hammel (8-7, 4.54 ERA). As a result, the OVER/UNDER for this, MLB Odds: Dodgers vs. Rockies MLB Picks – August 25, 2009 has been set at a combined total of 9½ runs scored.
