KERSHAW TRIES TO RUN UNBEATEN STREAK TO 8 VS. ROCKIE
Fri, 17 Jun 2011 12:44 PM EDT

LOS ANGELES DODGERS (29-34)

at COLORADO ROCKIES (29-32)

First Pitch: Thursday, 8:40 p.m. EDT
Line: Colorado -110, Los Angeles +100, Total: 7.5

The Dodgers and Rockies will start a four-game series at Coors Field on Thursday. The Rockies won both games against the Dodgers at home back in April. Baseball scores.

Clayton Kershaw (6-3, 3.05 ERA) starts for the Dodgers. Kershaw is 4-0 with a 2.66 ERA, 55 K and 11 BB in his past seven starts, but struggled in his last outing Saturday at Cincinnati, surrendering six runs in 6.2 innings. However, the Los Angeles offense picked him up, erasing a five-run deficit and rallying to win 11-8 in 11 innings. Kershaw hasn’t received a single run of support while he was on the mound in his past two appearances at Coors Field, going 0-1 despite limiting the Rockies to four runs over 12 innings.

Colorado will give the ball to 24-year-old rookie Juan Nicasio (1-1, 2.08 ERA). The hard-throwing right-hander, considered one of the Rockies’ top prospects, gave up three runs and nine hits in six innings of a 3-1 loss at San Francisco on Friday. He fared better at the plate, doubling in both of his at-bats. He pitched much better in his May 28 major-league debut, yielding one unearned run in seven innings of a 15-4 victory over St. Louis. Baseball odds.

Nicasio will look to continue his team’s recent trend of quality pitching. The Rockies have posted a 1.65 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over their past seven games, but are just 4-3 over that span because they have scored just 15 runs with a .228 team batting average and three total homers.

Kershaw has been really tough to beat lately, as L.A. is 11-5 in his past 16 outings dating back to last year. I like Kershaw to continue Colorado’s struggles offensively. I’m taking Los Angeles which is supported by these three anti-Rockies FoxSheets trends.

JIM TRACY is 8-18 (30.8%, -15.9 Units) against the money line after 9 consecutive games versus division rivals as the manager of COLORADO. The average score was COLORADO 4.5, OPPONENT 5.2 – (Rating = 3*).

COLORADO is 4-13 (23.5%, -11.1 Units) against the money line vs. an NL starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.250 or better this season. The average score was COLORADO 4.1, OPPONENT 4.3 – (Rating = 2*). Baseball spreads.

COLORADO is 7-13 (35.0%, -16.7 Units) against the money line in home games vs. terrible power teams – averaging 0.75 or less HR’s/game over the last 2 seasons. The average score was COLORADO 4.7, OPPONENT 5.2 – (Rating = 2*).
