Rubby & Revved Up Dodgers Host Rockies

Rockies @ Dodgers
Game 1

What's with all this weekend winnin'? I'm not sure, but we'll take it. The Dodgers have won two in a row as they head into a three game series with the Rockies and then a weekend series with the D-Backs at home. CarGo is on the DL, but we'll still have to deal with the likes of Mullet Man and the pesky Helton. Colorado is 6 games under .500 and 11 games back in third place behind SF while the Dodgers are now 11 games under .500 and 13.5 games back in 4th place.

Two young rookie pitchers will go up against each other tonight at Dodger Stadium. Rubby De La Rosa (3-4, 3.73) will go to the mound for the Dodgers. He's pitched very well in the past month, and overall I've been impressed with his potential. I honestly didn't think he'd make it this far in the starting rotation after taking the injured Garland's spot. He's even had some fleeting moments of no-hitter brilliance, but often can't make it deep into games which is something a young arm needs to work up to anyhow. Juan Nicasio (4-2, 3.88) has been horrible this year on the road for the Rockies. He is 0-2 with a horrendous 9.00 ERA. Yet at home he is 5-0 with a 1.58 ERA.

Oh boy, looks like Velez is getting a start at second base. Get ready for some errors!
