Colorado Rockies (12-11) @ Los Angeles Dodgers (13-10)
Game 1. Friday, 7:10PM. SportsNet LA
vs.He hasn't gone past five innings in any of his three starts, but a 2.57 ERA shows Beckett is healthy and effective enough for a fourth or fifth starter. An inning or two deeper would help the bullpen, though.
Game 2. Saturday, 7:10PM. SportsNet LALyles' sinker was as good as it's been all year, inducing 14 groundball outs against five fly-ball outs. He pitched seven without allowing an earned run or extra-base hit, and became the first Rockies starter in '14 to pitch into the eighth inning.
There are teams Maholm matches up well against, but the Rockies aren't one of them. He's 1-8 lifetime against Colorado and, following Beckett, the Dodgers need him to at least eat some innings.vs.
Nicasio didn't have his best stuff Sunday, but left with a lead in a game the Rockies lost by one. He allowed five runs (four earned), including three by homers, yielding seven hits and a walk while striking out five.Game 3. Sunday, 1:10PM. SportsNet LA
Ryu bent but didn't break against the Phillies, pitching out of repeated jams and finishing with a quality start of six innings and two runs allowed. He hasn't served up a home run yet this season.vs.
Jorge De La Rosa
After a rough beginning, signs are pointing to stabilization. He pitched well for six innings in a hard-luck loss at San Diego on April 16. In his last start, he needed 102 pitches for five innings but earned his first win, over the Giants at home.#ITFDB
