Dodgers Pulling Ahead of Rockies Out West

Los Angeles Dodgers

Dodgers and Rockies are in a Showdown for NL West

The Los Angeles Dodgers have opened up a 1.5-game lead in the battle for the National League West. They are in a slobber-knocker with the Colorado Rockies that will come down the last day of the season. IT SEEMS. Strap yourself in for a wild ride to the MLB Playoffs.

TV: 10:10 p.m. ET, ESPN, AT&T SportsNet-Rocky Mountain (Colorado), SportsNet LA (Los Angeles)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Rockies LH Tyler Anderson (6-9, 4.82 ERA) vs. Dodgers RH Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.88)

Odds: Dodgers -215-moneyline favorites. The total is 7.5 Under -120.

Chris Taylor’s first career walk-off homer gave the Los Angeles Dodgers a 1 1/2-game lead over Colorado in the National League West. The Dodgers are in a position for a three-game sweep of the Rockies.

Taylor launched the decisive blast in the 10th inning of Tuesday’s 3-2 victory as Los Angeles won for the sixth time in seven games.

Dodgers Would Love to End the Series on High Note

Taylor and Manny Machado each recorded two hits on Tuesday as the Dodgers improved their record against the Rockies this year to 11-7.

Buehler was superb while beating the Cardinals in his last turn. He permitted two hits over eight scoreless innings and matched his season high with nine strikeouts. The rookie has allowed three hits or fewer in four of his last six outings. He is holding opposing hitters to a .201 batting average.

Buehler is 0-1 with a 3.24 ERA in four starts against Colorado. He had a no-decision on Sept. 8 in which he gave up four runs and six hits over six frames.

Justin Turner is 12-for-25 during his seven-game hitting streak and is batting .373 in 59 at-bats this month.

Brian Dozier was hitless in three at-bats on Tuesday and is 2-for-36 over his last 15 contests.

Rockies Need to Salvage One Game of the Series

The Rockies have scored just seven runs while losing four of five to start a nine-game road trip. They enter the series finale 1 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the NL’s second wild-card spot.

All-Star shortstop Trevor Story missed Tuesday’s game, but could be back in the lineup by the weekend. An MRI detected inflammation but no structural damage to his right elbow.

Anderson is 0-6 during a 12-start stretch since defeating San Francisco on July 4. He also lost to the Giants in his last turn as he gave up two runs and seven hits over six innings.

Anderson lasted just 2 2/3 frames in a loss to the Dodgers on Sept. 9. He yielded three earned runs and five hits in falling to 1-1 with a 3.74 ERA in four starts this season. Anderson is 3-4 with a 4.10 ERA in 11 career outings.

DJ LeMahieu was hitless in five at-bats on Tuesday and is 2-for-19 over his last five games.
