Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki is bothered by a groin injury and Colorado manager Walt Weiss suggested there was a 50 percent chance the National League’s leading hitter (.350) would be available. The rest of his team has appeared to pick up the slack in his absence by posting 8 runs on Saturday’s win. Expect this unexpeced momentum to continue. The Over is 6-1-3 in the Rockies’ last 10 games as an underdog of +110 to +150.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Dodgers RH Josh Beckett (5-5, 2.37 ERA) vs. Rockies LH Yohan Flande (0-1, 6.10)
Beckett gave up five runs and six hits over five frames in a loss to Cleveland on Tuesday. Getting back on track will be difficult in Colorado.
Flande is making his third major-league start and has yet to pitch six innings. The Dodgers will seize the opportunity and take advantage of the inexperienced pitcher.
