Rockies game thread #141: Edinson Volquez vs. Jorge De La Rosa

Dustin Bradford

If the Rockies play a full nine innings tonight they should be able to get a win and slow down the big blue juggernaut.

While Edinson Volquez was recently traded from the Padres to the Dodgers, someone should have asked the Rockies for permission because they have owned him this year. Not that the Rockies would have stopped the trade, anything to face him one more time. In his five starts this year against Colorado he is 0-4 with a 13.08 ERA, here are the game stats:

Innings Earned Runs
4.3* 8
5.3 4
2.3* 9
3.3 6
6.0* 4

the games with an * are at Coors Field. His best start in Colorado was his first outing against the Rockies when he only gave up four runs in six innings.

The Rockies, on the other hand, need to remember to play the full nine innings. Ninth inning issues on defense and pitching the last two nights have allowed close games to get away from them. The Dodgers must feel like all close games are going to bounce into their favor and for the last two night they have.

Luckily for the Rockies they have Jorge De La Rosa coming to the mound. JDLR has been the Rockies' best starting pitcher at home this year with a 9-1 record and a 2.74 ERA. If it were anyone but the Dodgers I would say that this should be an automatic win (and jinx them while doing it).
