Rockies vs. Dodgers Match Details
Fixture: Colorado Rockies @ Los Angeles Dodgers
Date & Time: Tuesday, April 4, 10:10 p.m. EDT
Venue: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
Julio Urias will take the hill Tuesday for Los Angeles, making his second start of the year. Colorado’s lineup that he’ll face is highlighted by Kris Bryant, who was plagued by injuries last season, as well as Charlie Blackmon and 2022 All-Star C.J. Cron. Urias pitched pretty well against the Rockies last year, especially at home where. Colorado had the highest batting average in the MLB against lefties last year, and they have a righty-heavy lineup that could give Urias trouble tonight.
The visitors will send out hurler German Marquez, who won his first start of the year, tossing six innings, and allowing two runs against San Diego. Marquez had a 3.43 ERA on the road in 2022, and even though he had mixed results against LA last year, he’s still a solid pitcher that can shut down any lineup. The Dodgers lost Trea Turner in the offseason, but they added J.D. Martinez, David Peralta, and Miguel Rojas this offseason. Stars Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman are always reliable at the top of the order, and this is still arguably the best hitting team in the MLB.
Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Prediction
At the beginning of the season, pitchers usually have the upper hand as batters try to get their timing down. Although these are two strong lineups, with two aces on the hill, target the under here. The under has hit in four of the last five meetings at Dodger Stadium between these two division rivals, so expect a much lower-scoring affair here after 17 runs were put up last night.
