The San Diego Padres have hit a bit of a rough patch in the last few weeks, but they will look to get rolling again and make a charge towards the playoffs when they take on the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field this Wednesday afternoon.
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres are going through a rough patch, as their elite level batting lineup has cooled off significantly and if they still have playoff aspirations they will need to wake up again soon in order to start picking up wins again.
Their last game with the Rockies was particularly rough, as they made Antonio Senzatela look very good through his entire start and although they made a good go of it in the top of the 9th tying the game 5-5, but in the end it was not good enough losing in the bottom of the 9th in walk-off fashion.
The Padres are taking a big risk by picking up free agent pitcher Jake Arrieta, as he comes into this game with a 6.88 ERA and a 5-11 record and it is really tough to see him excel in this spot in the altitude and the heat of Denver.
The Rockies have not been great this year, but they have remained scrappy and competitive and it certainly has not helped them that they play in a very tough division with the likes of the Padres and Astros and Giants.
Colorado will be feeling good coming into this game, though, as they walked one off against this Padres team in their last game and they also send one of their best pitchers to the mound here in Austin Gomber.
Gomber comes in here with a 9-7 record and a 4.09 ERA and considering his home starts are up in Coors Field that really is not all that bad although he will need to bounce back here off of a rough outing against the Giants last time out.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
The Padres have been really unimpressive lately and the Rockies can be a tough nut to crack at home and given the gap in terms of this pitching matchup I think the home side has a great chance of picking up the W.
I also think the Rockies will carry some of yesterday’s momentum into this game and their offense seems to be coming around and I think they will hammer Arrieta here who I cannot project for a good start here.
