The Phillies are enjoying a red-hot August despite having major stars on the disabled list.

Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies

Los Angeles has lost nine of its last 10 road games and is suffering through a five-game losing streak away from Dodger Stadium.  In those five games, the offense is managing to average just 1.8 runs and hit for a .156 combined average.  The club hopes to build off of an eight-run outburst in the homestand finale against the Nationals.  “Today was a good day,” manager Joe Torre said about Sunday’s output.  “But we need more contributions from the guys in the middle.  The Dodgers are in the middle of a 10-game stretch against opponents from the National League East (2-1) and have posted a 10-13 record against the division this season.  Los Angeles if 5-4 this month (-100) and 32-35 in August over the last three seasons (-1,580).  The Blue Crew has compiled a solid 8-4 record on the road with a money line of -100 to -125 (+360), which differs greatly from the 22-30 mark the last three years in this situation (-1,160).

The Rockies look to bounce back from a shutout loss with their ace on the hill at Citizens Bank Park.

Colorado Rockies at Philadelphia Phillies

Colorado has faced off against opposing All-Star hurlers in back-to-back games, falling in defeat in both games, including a 6-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies last night.  “We take it one day at a time,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.  “We’re 2-6 on since the break.  We’ve had a couple games here that were winnable.”  Today’s game is the second game between the two clubs at Citizens Bank Park since facing off against each other in the 2009 Division Series.  It’s important for the Rockies to score first on the road this season, as the club is 3-16 away from Coors Field when the opponent scores the games first run.  Colorado is 0-2 after getting shutout this season (-200), but is an impressive 5-0 after three or more consecutive losses (+580).
