The Los Angeles Dodgers can do no wrong of late. They’ve lost just five (!) games in the month of August and have tightened the gap in the NL West to just 2.5 games.
While the Giants haven’t lost much either, they started a brutal nine-game stretch against the Braves, Brewers and Dodgers on Friday night.
The Dodgers’ meanwhile, started a three-game series vs the Rockies on Friday night and have an excellent chance to pick up some more ground on the Giants.
However, Los Angeles dropped their series-opener against Colorado and failed to take advantage of a rare San Francisco loss.
While the Dodgers are allowed to lose games, suffice it to say they can’t afford to blow more of these opportunities. Let’s hope they get back on track against their division “rivals” on Saturday.

The Rockies will counter with Jon Gray, who’s 7-10 with a 4.13 ERA this season. Widely rumored to be on the move at the trade deadline, Colorado stunned everyone by not dealing the right-hander to a contender.
Since the All-Star Game, it’s been all downhill for Gray, as he’s 1-4 with a 4.93 ERA, 15 walks and a 1.49 WHIP.
