May 01, 2012

The Los Angeles Dodgers have jumped out of the gate early this season and have a 16-7 record after the first month of the season. Tonight they take on the Colorado Rockies who are 11-11 on the season. Colorado won the first game of the series Monday night 6-2.

Los Angeles will look to Ted Lilly to get them back on the winning track to add to their second best record in the major leagues. Lilly is 2-0 on the season with an ERA of just 0.90 and his opponents have a batting average of just .138 against the lefthander. Last Wednesday he did not get a decision against the Atlanta Braves in the team’s 4-2 loss. He only allowed one run on three hits in his seven innings.

Jhoulys Chacin will start for the Rockies. Chacin has had a bad start to the season that seems to have carried over from the end of last year. He overall record his is last 20 starts is just 3-12. He gave up five runs over just five innings in his last outing last week against Pittsburgh.

Los Angeles is getting exceptional play out of Matt Kemp. On Monday, Kemp hit his 12th home run that leads the majors and has a batting average of .417 that also leads the majors and he is tied for the lead in the majors with 25 RBIs and 24 runs scored.

Carlos Gonzalez for the Rockies has hit well against Lilly over his career. He has 6 hits in 15 at bats including four home runs. However, Troy Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler are a combined 7 for 48 against the Dodgers’ lefthander.

The Rockies are favored in this matchup at -120, while the Dodgers are at +110. The total is at 9. Take the Dodgers in this, as Lilly will shut down the Rockies bats. The total will be low scoring and end UNDER.
