The Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies will do it all over again at Coors Field tonight. The Dodgers blasted the Rockies for a dominant 13-0 performance last night. There wasn’t anything that they did wrong in that contest.

The offense started early and often, while Tyler Anderson carried the load on the mound. Anderson was on point all night, as he allowed 4 hits and no earned runs in the 13-run win. Trea Turner was the big winner for the Dodgers, as he went 3-for-4 with 3 runs and 3 RBIs.
It would be very Dodgers-like to trade for a bat like Soto. Do they want to give away a plethora of assets for a player that might be available in two years anyway? Focusing on depth for their pitching staff is probably the better plan.
The Dodgers are going into Friday night at 66-32 and a 12-game lead on the Padres in the NL West. They’re in the clear, but do they have enough to win the World Series?
There is certainly enough on this roster to win another World Series. It all comes to who plays better in October. Maybe it’s the Dodgers. It’s not the Rockies, who are last in the NL West and 22 games back.
The Rockies have lost six of their last eight games going into Coors Field tonight. I’m sure a 13-run loss can’t hurt for motivation to play better. We’ll see with Chad Kuhl on the bump. Julio Urias is starting for the Dodgers.

Dodgers vs. Rockies Prediction:
Julio Urias is a terrific asset for the Dodgers. He is going into this start with an ERA of 2.72 and a 1.00 WHIP. The rotation hasn’t been in full health this season, but Urias has done a nice job to hold his own.
He’s strong on the road, with a 2.48 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. However, there’s one team that Urias hasn’t been at his best against and he’s looking at them in Denver tonight.
It’s been tough at Coors Field, with Urias yielding a .287 batting average and 35 runs in 11 games. Coors Field is his least successful park in the majors, so this could be tricky after the Rockies didn’t score a run on Thursday.
At Coors Field, the Rockies are hot with a .283 and 5.98 runs per 9 innings. We didn’t see it last night, but they should wake up against Urias.

The Dodgers should have a fine evening against Chad Kuhl. Kuhl was pitching well, some of the best baseball of his career, but he’s unraveling as of late.
The Dodgers have notched 7 RBIs in 53 at-bats against Kuhl in his career. They’re red-hot after a big night at the dish and continue to lead the majors with a .775 OPS.
The Dodgers have scored 20 runs in their last two games and at least 5 runs in 10 of their previous 13 outings. They likely keep going at the dish in this one, while the Rockies should have some decent success versus Urias. I’m on the OVER in what should be a high-scoring game at Coors Field.
