On Sunday afternoon, Clayton Kershaw will be looking to pick up his fifth win of the season when the Los Angeles Dodgers face left-hander Jorge De La Rosa and the Colorado Rockies.
Clayton Kershaw won his fourth game of the year when he went eight strong innings against the Chicago White Sox last Monday. He allowed just two runs in that outing on four hits while striking out nine and walking no one. Through 43.1 innings this season, Kershaw has struck out 55 batters and has a 3.32 ERA.
Kershaw is one of only a few pitchers that Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has struggled against. He has hit one home run off of him, but he is just 11-for-47 overall with 11 strikeouts in their matchups.
Jorge De La Rosa pitched well enough to get the win against the Arizona Diamondbacks last week, but he ended up taking the loss in a game the Rockies lost 4-2. He went seven strong innings in that game and gave up three earned runs on seven hits while walking three and striking out no one for the first time this season. So far this year, De La Rosa has given up just 53 hits in 66 innings of work and he owns a 3.68 ERA.
Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez has 13 hits in 34 at-bats against De La Rosa with two doubles, three home runs and 10 RBI.
