On Deck: Rockies at Dodgers

The Rockies arrive in Los Angeles having lost their last two games at home to the Diamondbacks by a combined score of 26-8. They slipped into third place on Thursday, the first time this season they have not been in either first or second base. They have, however, won seven of their last nine games.

The Dodgers, meanwhile, have a seven-game winning streak, and have scored six or more runs in each of their lat six games, one game short of their record for scoring six or more runs, which was set June 26-July 2, 2001. They have scored 54 runs in the six games, which is their biggest six-game total since they scored 56 runs in a six game stretch in 1996.

The dodgers, however, are only 16-16 within the NL West (32-10 against the rest of baseball). The Rockies pitching staff is making an impression with a 3.39 ERA, second lowest in the major leagues. The Diamondbacks road ERA is 3.24, which is No. 1. The only other teams with road ERAs below 4.00 are the Indians (3.74), Dodgers (3.87) and Yankees (3.91).

Dodger Stadium

The Rockies are 5-4 against the Dodgers this season, having split a two-game series at Dodger Stadium in early April.  The Rockies are 74-125 all-time at Dodger Stadium. They have won the season series at Dodger Stadium in only six of their previous 24 seasons of existence.
