The hosts, who have .284 BA, 33 runs and 9 HR in their previous six games at Dodger Stadium this season, will give the ball to Clayton Kershaw (0-1 with a 5.84 ERA).
In the point of fact, Kershaw had problems in his previous two starts in 2015, as the left-hander surrendered 16 hits and nine runs (eight earned) with five walks over 12 1/3 innings against San Diego Padres in the opening days of the season (6-3) and against the Diamondbacks last Saturday (0-6).
On the other hand, Kershaw has posted a 2.14 ERA in ten starts against Colorado over the last three years, allowing only 5 hits and 1 run in twenty two innings in the last three of them, with thirty two strikeouts.
The Colorado Rockies, who have won six consecutive road games at the start of the new season, will send to the mound Kyle Kendrick (1-1 with a 6.00 ERA).
He is coming off the worst start of his career, as the right-hander yielded 8 hits and 8 runs with five walks over five innings against the Cubs last Saturday (5-9).
Kendrick went 1-3 with a 4.62 ERA in four starts and two relief appearances against the Dodgers over the last three years, allowing 20 hits and 6 runs over 11 2/3 innings in two starts at Dodger Stadium in this period.
Juan Uribe is 5-for-8, with a homer and 2 RBI against him, Yasiel Puig is 5-for-9, A.J. Ellis is 4-for-9, Adrian Gonzalez is 4-for-12, with 1 RBI and three walks, Andre Ethier is 6-for-25, with 2 HR, 7RBI and three walks, while Yasmani Grandal is 2-for-7, with two walks.
I think that the Dodgers will win the opening game of this series with more than one run difference.
