Billingsley Looks For Home Cooking Against Rockies

New, 121 comments

The Dodgers go for their fifth straight win on Saturday, hosting the Rockies in the second game of a three-game weekend series at Chavez Ravine. Chad Billingsley gets the start and luckily for the Dodgers, the location is just right.

Billingsley in seven career starts is 1-6 at Coors Field with a 6.32 ERA, including last Sunday's loss against Millwood and the Rockies. However, at Dodger Stadium Billingsley is 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in six career starts against Colorado, including allowing one run in seven innings on May 30.

Notes

  • James Loney has 13 hits in his last 21 at-bats, hitting .619/.636/1.048 with three doubles and two home runs in five games.
  • For forecasting purposes, Matt Kemp has homered in consecutive games five times this season.
  • Kevin Millwood, beat the Dodgers last Sunday, but before that hadn't faced them since 2002. Milwood has pitched seven innings or more in six straight starts against the Dodgers, dating back to 1999.
  • Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies, who homered in the first inning Friday night, has a 13-game hitting streak, during which he is hitting .360/.458/.920 with eight home runs and 24 RBI. Gonzalez has at least one RBI in each of his last 10 games, matching the longest streak in Colorado franchise history, previously set by Vinny Castilla in April 2004.
