The Rockies and the Dodgers are a couple of teams that are going to have some great games as can be seen by the first meeting of the season on Monday night. The game on Monday night was only won because of a slow bouncer the Utley was able to field, but not able to get it over to the first baseman in time and threw the ball away into the dugout.

On the season so far the Rockies staff is living up to the typical hype of a Rockies staff with a team ERA that sits at 4.37 on the season. The Rockies have managed to put in a total of 193 runs on the season. The Rockies are hitting at a clip of .230 on the season.

The Dodgers on the other hand are coming into the game hitting at a clip of .237, but for all the problems getting hits this year the Dodgers have scored more runs as they are sitting at 202 runs on the year. The Dodgers have managed to get a team ERA that is sitting at 3.74 on the season so far. Heading to the mound for the Dodgers in this game is Kenta Maeda. Maeda on the season has a total of 44 innings in 8 starts out of 9 games thrown.Maeda has been able to strike out 54 batters and posted a 3-3 record and has managed to get an ERA that sits at 3.89.

Kyle Freeland is heading to the mound in this game for the Rockies. He has managed to get a total of 54 innings thrown and struck out 49 batters. Freeland has a 4-4 record and an ERA that is sitting at 3.17.

The Rockies are coming into this game with a much better pitcher on the mound in Freeland compared to Maeda. The Rockies offense is only slightly worse off than the Dodgers as well. The main comparison with the teams here is the Rockies who will have a better time with the pitching as long as Freeland last a long time in the game. Rockies win this game 3-2.
