The Colorado Rockies find themselves at the bottom half of the National League with their record at 59-69. They seemed to be picking up the slack after a three-game losing streak against the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks. They are now on back-to-back wins and their latest win was against the defending champions. The game was tied after the third inning and Colorado scored one RBI each in the sixth and ninth inning. Charlie Blackmon scored two of the team’s total RBIs while pitcher Kyle Freeland did his part, having seven strikeouts in six innings.
Players to watch: Ryan McMahon 2B (GP 119, AB 419, R 67, H 110, 2B 23, 3B 1, HR 19, RBI 65, TB 192, BB 43, SO 120, SB 4, AVG 0.263, OBP 0.333, SLG 0.458, OPS 0.791, WAR 3.8), Trevor Story SS (GP 112, AB 411, R 65, H 101, 2B 29, 3B 3, HR 16, RBI 58, TB 184, BB 38, SO 108, SB 17, AVG 0.246, OBP 0.323, SLG 0.448, OPS 0.77, WAR 2.2).
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers are the second-best team in the MLB right now and trail the San Francisco Giants by 2.5 games. They were coming off a sweep of the San Diego Padres but were surprised by the Colorado Rockies at home. They lost, 2-4, with Trea Turner and Mookie Betts the only players to score an RBI. This team fielded five pitchers and they gave up three home runs. Andre Jackson was on the pitcher’s mound for 4.2 games but he only had two strikeouts. This team will surely address the hiccup of their pitchers and come into this game with a better performance.
