Los Angeles Dodgers
In the first game of the upcoming doubleheader, the Dodgers plan to employ Ryan Pepiot, who has been nothing short of stellar in recent outings. In his latest effort, Pepiot showcased his talent by limiting the Tigers to just one run on five hits across six innings, although it resulted in a no-decision in a game ultimately won by the Dodgers. Since joining the team in August, Pepiot has been a standout performer, surrendering only seven runs in 33 innings. This impressive performance has led to a dazzling 1.91 ERA and a remarkable 0.70 WHIP, complemented by a 2-1 record in those 33 innings. Notably, Pepiot previously held the Rockies to just one run over five innings in their sole meeting.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on an impressive winning streak, taking victories in three consecutive series, including a notable series win against the formidable San Francisco Giants over the weekend. As they gear up for the doubleheader against the Rockies, the Dodgers have displayed their prowess by winning eight of their last ten games. What’s even more impressive is their ability to maintain their form on the road, securing seven wins in their last ten away matchups.
One of the unsung heroes of the Dodgers’ success has been Jason Heyward, who might not garner the same attention as some of the team’s star players but has been instrumental with 40 RBIs and an outstanding .825 OPS for the season. Against the Rockies, Heyward has particularly excelled, contributing five RBIs and an impressive 1.4 OPS. This month, he has maintained a strong .821 OPS.
Dodgers’ Anderson Aims for Redemption Against Padres
The Dodgers have showcased their offensive prowess, averaging 5.61 runs per game this season, ranking them second in the league. On the pitching side, they’ve posted a team ERA of 4.05, which positions them at 12th in the league.
In the second game of the doubleheader, Chase Anderson is expected to take the mound for the Dodgers. Anderson has shown promise in his recent outing, limiting the high-scoring Padres to just three runs, of which two were earned, across 6.1 innings. However, he was charged with yet another loss due to a lack of run support. Despite his strong performance, Anderson’s overall season record paints a different picture, with a challenging 5.75 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP, accompanied by an unfortunate 0-6 record in 81.1 innings. In his sole outing against the Dodgers this season, Anderson allowed six runs, contributing to his career 5.18 ERA and 2-5 record in 13 meetings with the team.

One bright spot for the Rockies has been the impressive production of some of their young hitters, including Nolan Jones.
