While the division is lost for the Rockies, they are still alive in the National League Wild Card as they sit 7 games back of the leaders (Nats/Brewers). This series takes on even more meaning as the Rockies and Padres are neck and neck in the same Wild Card race with the Padres only being half a game ahead. The Rockies last 10 games have only yielded 3 wins, further pushing them away from the leaders. It is also important to note that the Rockies have been seriously let down by their road form going 23-35 on the year.
Heading to the mound for the Rockies will be Kyle Freeland (3-9, 7.24 ERA) who has been downright bad even considering his home field is in the altitude at Coors Field. Although Freeland’s numbers are better on the road (4.91 ERA) I still do not see this being the spot he turns it around.
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres have been the definition of mediocre this year with their record being 52-61 and most of their offensive and defensive stats rating in the middle/bottom of the league. There is, however, a chance for the Padres to turn this around as they are still in striking range of a playoff spot being 6.5 games behind the leaders in the NL Wild Card. This is a very important series for the Padres and they have a good chance of starting it off on the right foot with Cal Quantrill (4-3,3.57 ERA) heading to the mound.
Quantrill has had a strong year for the Padres despite limited opportunities (only 63 innings pitched on the year). His performances have earned him every opportunity as of late as he has held opponents to a 1.23 ERA in his last 4 starts. The Padres are likely in a good spot here with Quantrill and have a great chance of taking this game against the Rockies.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
The Rockies have been a pretty weak team on the road and the pitching matchup is in the Padres favor. I also think the Padres have the better overall team and I have more confidence in their ability to turn this around and make a push for the postseason.
