Starters: German Marquez (7-3, 4.57 ERA) vs. Hyu-Jin Ryu (9-1, 1.26 ERA)
Marquez got torpedoed on the mound in his last start by the San Diego Padres, as he allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits in 5.2 innings on Jun. 15, albeit in a 14-8 home win. Marquez is 3-2 with a 3.33 ERA in seven road starts this year. Ryu has been tantalizing all season long. He has not allowed more than a run in each of his last nine starts. He is 1-0 with a 0.45 ERA across three starts (20.0 innings) this month as of this writing. He is 6-0 with a 0.87 ERA in seven home starts this season.
Nolan Arenado is 11-for-10 with three homers in career vs. Ryu.
Joc Pederson is 4-for-13 in career vs. Marquez.
Prediction: Dodgers win, 5-2.
Starters: Peter Lambert (2-0, 6.00 ERA) vs. Kenta Maeda (7-4, 3.87 ERA)
Lambert got his first bad taste in the big leagues, when he got blown out on the mound in his last start, allowing eight earned runs on nine hits in a 14-13 home loss to the Padres on Jun. 16. He allowed just a total of two earned runs across 12.0 frames over his first two starts, though. Maeda held the Rockies down to only a run in a 10-6 road win last April in which he also allowed just four hits while striking out four. He is 5-1 with a 1.95 ERA in six home starts this season.
Charlie Blackmon is batting 7-for-21 in career vs. Maeda.
Cody Bellinger is hitting .395 at home this season.
Prediction: Dodgers win, 5-4.
Starters: Antonio Senzatela (5-5, 5.48 ERA) vs. Clayton Kershaw (6-1, 3.13 ERA)
Senzatela got lit up by the Chicago Cubs on Jun. 12, as he yielded six earned runs on eight hits in 4.0 innings of a 10-1 home loss. It was an unfortunate turn of events for Senzatela who was coasting in his previous two starts, during which he allowed a total of only two earned runs on eight hits across 12.0 innings. Kershaw hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in each of his past six starts, including in the Dodgers’ 7-3 home win over the Cubs on Jun. 3, when he surrendered three earned runs on seven hits in 6.0 innings.
Charlie Blackmon is 16-for-53 in career vs. Kershaw.
The Dodgers’ current lineup has a collective .360 career batting average vs. Senzatela.
Prediction: Dodgers win, 6-3.
