After an opening day loss at Coors Field, the Dodgers have beaten the Rockies eight straight times. They try for nine in a row and a weekend sweep on Sunday afternoon, with David Price starting on the mound against Jon Gray.
Cody Bellinger, playing in just his 37th of 94 Dodgers games this season, is hitting .173/.287/.291, including 5-for-48 (.104/.185/.167) with one extra-base hit in July. He’s hitting leadoff on Sunday in place of Mookie Betts, who aggravated a right hip irritation on Saturday.
It’s just the third career start batting first for Bellinger, who also did so on April 26, 2017 — the second game of his major league career — and in Game 5 of the 2018 NLCS.
