LOS ANGELES — The Colorado Rockies will look to close out June by heading in the opposite direction from when the month started and build off the
momentum from a wild victory Thursday.
The first weekend of June was one to forget when the Rockies were swept in a three-game series by the Los Angeles Dodgers. In full revival after a
slow start to the season Charles Woodson Jersey , the
Dodgers scored 33 runs in their three victories.
Now the Rockies head to L.A. with a full head of steam. They lost a heartbreaker Wednesday on a Giants game-ending home run and coughed up a late lead
Thursday before DJ LeMahieu’s ninth-inning home run was the difference in a victory.
With the month set to close this weekend, the Rockies have some confidence on their side as they open a three-game series against the Dodgers. The
Rockies will send left-hander Tyler Anderson (4-3, 4.62 ERA) to the mound Friday night against Dodgers lefty Rich Hill (1-2, 5.30).
Even after the Rockies were swept by the Dodgers to open the month they still sat in second place in the National League West, 31/2 games behind the
first-place Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers were in third place Jason Verrett Jersey , 4 1/2 games behind the Diamondbacks.
Heading into this weekend series, though, the Rockies are in fourth place eight games back, while the Dodgers are in second, 31/2 back. The Rockies
have gone 9-16 in June.
The Rockies victory Thursday appears to be motivated by a talk-is-cheap statement from Nolan Arenado James Harrison Jersey , who then went out and hit a
first-inning home run in a win that ended a four-game losing streak.
“We can talk about it all we want; we’ve been talking about this since April,” Arenado said, according to The Athletic. “How are we going to
turn it around? Blah blah. We haven’t yet.”
The Dodgers have turned around their season by going 17-7 in June. But their turnaround goes back even further. They are 27-11 since May 17 and have
the long ball to thank for it.
With two home runs Thursday, the Dodgers now have 53 in the month to tie a franchise record. They will spend the next two games chasing the major
league record of 58 for a single month.
But the Dodgers are coming off an 11-5 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Thursday and went 3-4 against the Cubs over the past 10 days. The Dodgers have
called the Cubs a measuring stick and they ended up losing the season series to the team they have faced in each of the last two National League
Now the Dodgers return to division play, after just six games against NL West opponents this month. The Dodgers are 5-1 against the Rockies this
If there is anything the Cubs might have exposed when it comes to the Dodgers it is a bullpen that appears to be in something of a lull. Dodgers’
relievers gave up eight runs in a defeat Tuesday and 10 in Thursday’s loss.
“I’m not concerned about it Wil Lutz Jersey ,” manager
Dave Roberts told reporters after Thursday’s game. “We match up very well with (the Cubs) and they match up well with us. I think we are very
comparable clubs. You give away outs, walks, we both can slug. You have to play good baseball. You look at a couple of games where they broke it open
against our (bullpen) but by and large, our bullpen has been pretty good for some time.”
Anderson is 2-3 with a 4.85 ERA in eight starts versus the Dodgers. Hill is 0-3, 7.52 in four starts against the Rockies.
Police were searching for suspended Oakland Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith Taron Johnson Jersey , who authorities said Sunday is suspected of domestic violence.
Someone called 911 to report a domestic violence incident at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, a San Francisco police spokesman said. He added Smith fled the
San Francisco home before officers arrived.
Sgt. Michael Andraychak said the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening. Andraychak said investigators are asking for the public’s help
The troubled linebacker has been arrested several times on charges of drunken driving, vandalism and illegal possession of assault rifles among other
charges since the San Francisco 49ers drafted him in 2011 in the first round. The 49ers released him 2015 after he was arrested and charged with his
third drunken driving in four years.
The Raiders signed him in 2015 and he played nine games for them until the NFL suspended him for substance abuse violations. The 28-year-old’s
application to the NFL commissioner for reinstatement was initially denied in 2016 and is still pending.
