Colorado enters play on Tuesday in first place in the NL West, a half game up on Arizona. They were off yesterday after taking 2 of 3 at the Diamondbacks over the weekend.
How they perform in series like this one at SD will determine if they can actually stay in the race. I sort of like their chances because the offense has yet to rev up.
The pitching will have to be better than 27th in ERA. Tyler Chatwood has not been good early – other than that shocking two hitter at SF. In every other start he has yielded at least 4 ER including a home start against the Padres.
Even though he should be used to it his home road splits are terrible so he is likely happy to get away from Coors.
San Diego Padres
The Padres are bad, as expected, but after taking two of three from the Giants over the weekend they are a smidge ahead of San Francisco.
They have proven they can hit the long ball but scoring runs consistently has eluded them. Again all of that is to be expected.
San Diego does not have a lot of great pitching options. Trevor Cahill is always interesting because he does not give up a ton of hits but the walks always kill him.
The truth is he is not going to be the pitcher who won 18 games for Oakland way back when. He is mostly a fade though he surprises from time to time.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
Neither pitcher is inspiring much confidence in this one but the Rockies might be undervalued on the road. The question is whether this is a good team or just one off to a good start.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 7.5
Even though PetCo is a pitcher’s park this number seems low to me when you see who is on the mound. If you prefer a side than take Colorado.
