Not only is Tuesday night’s game between the Rockies and Dodgers gigantic, but we’ve also got ourselves an awesome pitching matchup at Chavez Ravine as Kyle Freeland takes on Clayton Kershaw in an all-southpaw battle.

Kershaw has been fantastic since his return from the disabled list, logging a 2.39 ERA and .249 on-base percentage against in 95.1 innings pitched. Over that span he’s notched 89 strikeouts compared to just 12 walks. The Dodgers are 11-4 in the 15 games Kershaw has started since he came back from the DL.

Kershaw faced the Rockies 11 days ago, holding them to two runs on six hits while striking out seven in six innings. That start was at Coors Field.

Freeland has also been money lately. His 15 wins leads the team, and over his last eight starts the former first-round pick owns a 2.31 ERA and has limited opponents to a .279 OBP. The Rockies have won eight in a row with Freeland on the mound.

In his last start against the Dodgers — which took place on Sept. 8, the Colorado native allowed one run on four hits and struck out eight in six innings.
