Sunday afternoon, the Colorado Rockies will take the field behind Jorge De La Rosa as they face Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Los Angeles Dodgers. De La Rosa will be making his 6th start as Ryu makes his 7th.
Jorge De La Rosa picked up his first win of 2013 in his last outing after a 5 inning effort where he gave up a run on 5 hits with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. With the win, De La Rosa went to 1 - 3 with an ERA of 6.38. Last season, De La Rosa went 16 – 6 with an ERA of 3.49 in 30 starts.
In 2013, De La Rosa went 2 – 1 with a 5.29 ERA in 3 starts against the Dodgers. He will need to stay away from Los Angeles’ Matt Kemp. Kemp is a career .423 hitter with 3 homers and 8 RBIs when facing the Colorado left-hander.
Hyun-Jin Ryu has been impressive for the Dodgers this season, compiling a 3 – 1 record with an ERA of 2.12. He pitched to a no decision in his last start after going 6 innings and giving up 2 runs on 9 hits while walking 2 and striking out 3. Ryu’s numbers this season are right in line with last season when he went 14 – 8 with an ERA of 3.00 in 30 starts.
In 2013, Ryu was 1 – 1 with a 3.60 ERA in his 2 starts against the Rockies. He has done well in his short major league career against Colorado and if he pitches well, there shouldn’t be a batter that he can’t handle.
