The Rockies are coming off a sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks and with winning 3 in a row they are surprisingly tied for first place in the NL West with the L.A. Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.
The Padres had won 2 in a row before a loss in their last game and while they are 7 games under .500 and in the basement of the division they are still only 3.5 games out of first place.
The Padres are 12-5 in their last 17 home games against the Rockies.
In their last games the Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-3 and the Padres lost to the L.A. Dodgers 1-0.
No surprise that the Rockies have a legit offense, but suspect pitching staff, as they rank 5th in the Majors in runs scored, but only 29th in team ERA.
In their 3-game sweep over the Diamondbacks they scored a combined 20 runs and their pitching was also solid only surrendering 5 runs.
Jon Gray (0-0 11.42) gets the start for the Rockies tonight and his last outing was less than stellar giving up 6 earned runs in only 3 innings in a 9-8 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 2 starts this season he has pitched 8 innings and has given up 11 earned runs.
Gray was the 3rd pick in the 2013 MLB draft and he is still looking for his first win in the Majors. In 11 starts he is 0-2 with an ERA of 6.57.
The Rockies are 8-4 on the road this season and their recent sweep of the Diamondbacks came on the road.
San Diego Padres
The Padres’ offense ranks in the middle of the pack in runs scored (15th), but they only rank 23rd in team ERA. However, in winning 2 of their last 3 games their pitching was solid only giving up a total of 4 runs.
James Shields (0-4 3.55 ERA) gets the call for San Diego tonight and he was solid in his last start going 7 innings and only giving up 1 earned run, but he got no support in a 1-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants.
The Padres have lost all 5 of Shields’ starts this season.
Shields has the 2nd lowest run support in the Majors (1.36).
Shields won 6 straight facing the Rockies until his last start facing them.
The Padres have won 4 of their last 5 games facing the Rockies with Shields on the hill.
This season the Padres are 4-8 at home.
