Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
The Padres need to continue to play good baseball if they wish to gain ground in their division. This series is a good chance for them to do so.
San Diego is the better team, but so far this year the Rockies have been trouble for them. I look for that to change in this series.
Joe Musgrove was good in his last start and I look for him to toss a solid game here. The Padres should definitely be able to hit around Kyle Freeland.
I like the Padres on the run lin here.
