In two Cactus League exhibitions against the Dodgers this spring, the Rockies are -two and have gotten pummeled by a put together rating of 22-5.
In the team’s very first matchup March one at Camelback Ranch, Los Angeles cruised to a 10- gain in 6 innings. Trevor Bauer threw two clean frames and the Dodgers’ bullpen shut the Rockies down the rest of the way, permitting just two hits. In the meantime, 4 of Colorado’s five pitchers that day had been scored on.
On Monday, setting up the game with a lineup that will intently resemble what they use on opening day, the Rockies had been trounced 12-5 at Salt River Fields as the Dodgers scored multiple operates in five various innings. Colorado did tag L.A. second-12 months standout Dustin May for two operates in three innings.
Hey, perhaps it’s just spring training.
Or, perhaps it’s an omen of a different sad 12 months for Colorado in the “rivalry,” which has been a person-sided for fundamentally the entirety of the club’s 29-12 months existence. The Rockies had been 4-fifteen against the Dodgers in 2019 (.211 profitable percentage) and did not fare much greater in the condensed 2020 time, going 3-seven (.300).
The Rockies never have any far more 2021 Cactus League video games scheduled as opposed to the Dodgers, whom Colorado opens the time against April one at Coors Discipline.
