Baseball can be a bummer sometimes. That has certainly been the case for the Colorado Rockies lately, who have not won a game since two weeks ago on April 27th. They’ll spend this week in Los Angeles, a place that has been their own personal house of horrors. If you couple that with two starts from Kyle Kendrick and his 8.73 ERA, it becomes pretty difficult to have any confidence in the coming week. On the bright side, baseball is weird, so anything could happen, no matter how unexpected. Can they please at least win one game? Here’s a look ahead to week six.

Season record: 11-17 (5th in NL West, 8 GB of LAD)
