Dodgers on Deck: September 28 at Rockies

MLB: Game Two-Los Angeles Dodgers at Colorado Rockies Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers finish off their series at Coors Field on Thursday night in Denver, with a chance to close out arguably their most dominant season matchup against the Rockies in 31 years of playing each other.

Entering Wednesday night, the Dodgers still have two more games against the Rockies. But they are already 9-2 (.818) against them. If the Dodgers win the final two games, they’ll have their best single-season win percentage over Colorado. If they win one of the two, they’ll have the fourth best. The current best is 15-4 (.789), achieved by both the 2006 and 2019 Dodgers teams. The 2009 team was 14-4 (.778) against the Rockies.
