Dodgers avoid sweep
Los Angeles edged host Arizona Sunday afternoon by a score of 4-3 in 11 innings to salvage a game in the four-game series. Joc Pederson hit a go-ahead pinch-hit solo home run in the top of the 11th inning to provide the difference. Russell Martin finished 2-for-4 with a solo homer to contribute to the Dodgers' offensive effort. Cody Bellinger was 2-for-5 with a solo home run. David Freese ended the contest 1-for-2 with a solo homer. Casey Sadler picked up the win in relief as he allowed one hit with one strikeout and one walk over one inning. Pedro Baez notched the save as he struck out one in a perfect inning of work.

MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are 17-37 in their last 54 road games. Colorado is 2-11 in the last 13 Lambert starts.
The Dodgers are 2-5 in their last seven Monday games. Los Angeles is 5-0 in the last five Buehler starts versus the Rockies.
Los Angeles has dominated all season at home and Colorado is in a big rut currently with a poor rookie pitcher on the mound. Good luck against Buehler, Rockies. You're going to need it. I'm betting on LA with the runline.
