It’ll be a battle of NL West foes as the Colorado Rockies will travel to take on the San Diego Padres for a 4 game series beginning on Friday.
These teams have already met 12 times this season with the season series split overall.
The Rockies enter Friday 4th in the NL West, 20.5 games behind the league best San Francisco Giants for the top spot in the division. In the NL wild card race, the team stands 14.5 games behind the Padres for the second wild card spot.
Despite hosting the All-Star weekend, the Rockies were not represented in the game by any players. The last time they sent any players were in 2018.
2B Ryan McMahon has been the big bat for Colorado this year, leading the team with 16 HR’s and 50 RBI’s.
San Diego Padres
The Padres remain in 3rd place in the loaded NL West division. They sit 2.5 games behind the Dodgers and 5.5 games behind the league best Giants.
San Diego does hold a comfortable 6.5 game lead over the Cincinnati Reds for the final wild card spot.
The Padres grabbed 2B Adam Frazier from the Pirates to add another solid bat in the lineup and pair with Tatis in the middle infield. Unfortunately, they missed out on their big target of ace Max Scherzer as he was snagged up out of nowhere by the rival Dodgers.
All-Star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. continues to lead the Padres in nearly every offensive category. He has a big bat and has a team high 31 home runs (3rd most in league) and 70 RBI’s (8th most in league) as well as a .290 batting average (21st). Tatis also has the 3rd best OPS in the majors at 1.021.
