The Dodgers try to extend their seven-game home winning streak when they welcome the Rockies to town for three games to complete the homestand. Here is a look at the schedule for the series, beginning Monday night at Dodger Stadium.
Monday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)
Since joining the Dodgers, Mike Bolsinger has a 3.26 ERA in 10 starts at Dodger Stadium, with 54 strikeouts and 19 walks in 58 innings.
Tyler Chatwood has been everything the Rockies have asked for and more, averaging over six innings per start with a 2.99 ERA, 44 strikeouts and 19 walks in his 69⅓ innings. On the road he has been even better, allowing three runs in five stats, with a 0.53 ERA, 23 strikeouts and seven walks.
Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
All eyes will be on Julio Urias for his home debut. At 19 years, 291 days old will be he first teenage pitcher in a game at Dodger Stadium since Dwight Gooden, who struck out 11 in a 2-0 shutout win on May 11, 1984.
Eddie Butler has only struck out 10 of 79 batters (12.7 percent) on the road this season, but he still has a 2.66 road ERA this season compared to 9.37 at Coors Field. Butler has lasted six innings twice in six starts this season, and both came on the road.
Wednesday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Kenta Maeda has allowed two runs in his last two starts, just one of them earned, and hasn't allowed a home run in four starts. He already faced the Rockies once this season, striking out eight while pitching scoreless baseball into the seventh inning on April 23. The Dodgers face a rare left-hander in the finale with Chris Rusin going for the Rockies. Rusin had a 1.69 ERA in April, but since then is 0-4 with a 6.06 ERA, with 67 percent of his innings during that span on the road.
