Pederson has huge day at plate
Coors Field has a way of making any hitter look great every once in a while. On Saturday night, it was the turn of Joc Pederson. He hit two home runs as part of a 4-for-5 night which also included a double and four runs scored in 12-4 rout that pulled LA closer to the top of the division. Chris Taylor was 2-for-3 with a triple, two walks, a run and two RBIs from the top of the order. Matt Kemp went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two runs. Breyvic Valera finished 2-for 5 with a run and three RBIs. Pedro Baez threw a scoreless inning of relief to record the win.
Bullpen implodes for Rockies
Colorado was tied 4-4 with the Dodgers heading to the seventh inning before the visitors notched an eight-run inning off the Rockies bullpen. Bryan Shaw ended up taking the loss, giving up three earned runs on three hits while only recording one out. Mike Dunn followed and he allowed four earned runs without getting an out. German Marquez started for Colorado, allowing four earned runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts and three walks through six innings. D.J. LeMahieu was 1-for-5 with a double, a run and two RBIs to pace Colorado. Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 with an RBI. Nolan Arenado finished 2-for-4. Trevor Story was 3-for-4 with a double and a run.
MLB Betting Trends
The Dodgers are 11-4 in their last 15 games overall. Los Angeles is 9-4 in its last 13 Sunday games.
The under is 10-2-1 in Bettis' last 13 home starts. The over is 5-2-1 in Bettis' last eight starts.
Bettis seems to often be a calming influence and Wood isn't qiute the same as he was last year. With Los Angeles posing a serious threat to the NL West and the National Lague in general, it's up to Colorado to keep LA at an arm's length away. I don't think the Rockies will be swept at home and watch out in parrticular for Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado, who torches left-handed pitching.
