Dodgers: Series Preview of Mile High NL West Showdown
The Dodgers season has been filled with inconsistency. After looking dominant at times, they leave you wondering how they can play so bad at other times. The Dodgers will look to play consistently well in their big series with the Rockies.
One Weekend after regaining first place in a huge series with the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers face the same situation against the Colorado Rockies. The Dodgers currently trail the Rockies by 1.5 games after an abysmal series against the New York Mets. If the Dodgers were to sweep the Rockies, they would finish this series in sole possession of first place once again.
The Dodgers enter the series to begin a pivotal ten game road trip, the longest left of the 2018 season. The Rockies continue their ten game home stand as they play the Dodgers prior to their own four-game clash with the Diamondbacks. The last time these teams met a few weeks ago the Dodgers blew three late leads to lose the series. The Rockies are looking to extend their NL West lead while the Dodgers are looking to inch closer to first place.
