Will struggles of Dodgers continue vs. Rockies? MLB Predictions 9/10/17

Dodgers Lose 10th Straight Game as Colorado Completes the Sweep in 8-1 Blowout

Darvish himself cruised in his August 4 debut with the Dodgers, firing seven scoreless innings at the New York Mets.

Unsafe territory for the Dodgers starts with the opportunity they're presenting themselves to self-destruct.

"We're battling, grinding and sticking together, and those are things that make you win those close games and win 13 straight", Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said after the series, according to Fox Sports. "Right now it's on the opposite side". I got to hopefully lock the command back in. "He got us out of the inning with the lead, kudos to him".

They managed to maintain their 4-1 lead until the fifth inning, but from there lost all control. They were the only hits of the night for the dynamic duo, but they did plenty of damage.

In the fourth inning, they scored three times thanks to a pair of Rockies errors, a Turner RBI single and a two-run double off Arenado's glove by Yasiel Puig.

The Dodgers answered back with a pinch-hit solo home run from Andre Ethier to lead off the bottom of the fifth.

The Dodgers pitching staff gave up 99 runs to Arizona's dynamic lineup. Gray did not allow a hit until Chris Taylor's two-out single in the third inning.

The Dodgers fell into an early 1-0 hole after a home run by the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez, but they found a way to respond this time. Colorado took three walks and registered eight hits, including a two-run home run by Trevor Story in a four-run fourth inning. Later in the inning, backup catcher Austin Barnes delivered a two-run single. The club also has a seven-game losing streak at home, its longest since 1993.

On a positive note, Darvish became the fastest pitcher in Major League Baseball history to reach 1,000 career strikeouts when he stuck out CarGo in the top of the fourth inning. Now in his fifth major league season, Darvish pitched for the Texas Rangers until the trade deadline this season when he was moved to the Dodgers. "But I feel like that's a play I've got to make". "We want to win".

"I think we're a little caught in between right now, keeping things in the big picture and thinking about what we need to do to be ready for the playoffs". Those are the goals I have. And it could not have come at a worse time, in the midst of a late-season collapse. A one-out double from Alexi Amarista was followed by a walk to Jonathan Lucroy. First pitch is at 4:05PM EST. Arenado played in his 700th career game, 11th most in Rockies history. Kershaw has combined to throw for 9 2/3 innings and given up 4 earned runs. "That shows me we're a good team, because we never give up, and keep fighting". The left-hander went on the disabled list with a back issue after that and didn't return until last Friday in San Diego. The right-hander, however, was not exactly basking in the glory after the game.

"We're proving that", said Dave Roberts who once managed a team being discussed as one of the best ever.

The Dodgers (92-50) continued to burn. "That's something that really pissed me off tonight". In a game where they had Corey Seager back, Los Angeles rallied for four runs in their first chance on offense.
