Date: Tuesday September 28th, 2010

Time: 8:40pm EST

Money Line: Dodgers +115 and Rockies -135

Run Line: Over/Under 9 Runs

Preview: In the final week of Joe Torre’s career as a manger, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies play the first game of a three game series at Coors Field. The Dodgers come into the game six games below .500 with six games to go. Just a couple weeks ago, Torre announced his retirement a couple weeks ago, and the Dodgers have turned the reigns over to hitting coach Don Mattingly. The Dodgers have been a disappointment this season, starting with the offense that is batting just .252 as a team. Andre Ethier leads the team with a .287 batting average, along with 23 homeruns. Hikoki Kuroda will make the start for the Dodgers. The 35 year old from Japan is 11-13 on the season with an earned run average of 3.27. In his last start, Kuroda went eight innings, allowing five hits and a run in the win over the Padres.

Colorado will send left hander Jeff Francis to the mound. Francis is 4-6 with a 4.71 earned run average on the season. In his career, the 29 year old is 55-50. In his last start, Francis went just 3.2 innings at Arizona, losing the game 10-9. Colorado comes into the game 4.5 games behind the Giants at the top of the National League West, and 4 games behind the Padres for the NL Wildcard spot. Carlos Gonzalez is carrying the load for Colorado, batting .341 with 33 homeruns and 114 runs batted in.

My Betting Picks: Colorado keeps their hopes alive. Rockies win 7-5.
