The Rockies will meet the Padres Wednesday for a doubleheader, as the first game was rained out
San Diego Padres
The Padres have had a tough time building up the World Series caliber consistency they were expected to have coming into the season. The Padres were able to avoid a sweep on Sunday against the Giants and picked up a blowout victory last night in their first matchup against the Rockies in 2021.
The Padres offense has not lived up to the hype this year, and Fernando Tatis Jr. is now out due to coming down with COVID-19. San Diego is in the bottom ten in the league in runs scored at 3.97 a game and has a team OPS of just .679.
The Padres pitching staff has helped them maintain their above .500 record this year. The Padres are first in the MLB in team ERA at 2.89 and have a strikeout-to-walk ratio above 3.
YU Darvish looks to continue what’s been a great season thus far. The veteran right-hander is 3-1 with a 2.27 ERA through seven starts. Hitting wise, Trent Grisham has stepped up and proven to be a balanced option. He has five home runs and six stolen bases this season.
Its been as rough a season as projected for the Colorado Rockies, who currently own the worst record in the National League. The good news for the Rockies is that they at least get to play this doubleheader at home, as they’ve won just twice away from Coors Field.
The Rockies are averaging 4.67 runs a game, but when the ballpark metrics are factored in, the Rockies have one of the worse offenses in the league. Their pitching has once again had a hard time finding consistency as well, as they have a league worst 5.20 ERA.
Jon Gray gets the start for the Rockies and has been putting together a good year. He is 4-2 with a 3.12 ERA through seven starts. He won his last time out against the Giants.
Trevor Story has been having another All-Star caliber year at the plate. He is hitting .285/.357/.496 with four homers, four steals and 20 RBI.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Free San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
This is a spot where I feel the Rockies can keep things close. Colorado is above .500 this season at home, which speaks volumes given they are the second worst team in the league. Jon Gray should be able to keep a struggling Padres offense off the board in this one and keep the Rockies in it.
