The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Padres have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 11 of their last 14 games. The Padres have won nine straight games when scoring four or more runs. Fernando Tatis Jr. leads the Padres with 42 hits and 30 RBI while MannyMachado and Will Myers have combined for 76 hits and 52 RBI. Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 5.15 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. This will be Paddack’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Rockies have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 46 hits and 28 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 72 hits and 39 RBI. Ryan Castellani gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 3.54 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. This will be Castellani’s first career game against the Padres.
The Padres are 7-2 in their last 9 games as a favorite, 9-20 in their last 29 road games and 9-2 in their last 11 overall. The Rockies are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series, 2-8 in their last 10 games as an underdog and 1-6 in their last 7 home games. The over is 4-0 in Padres last 4 overall. The over is 4-0 in Rockies last 4 home games. The Padres are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Colorado and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings.
Chris Paddack has allowed 19 earned runs and 28 hits in his last 25.2 innings while Ryan Castellani has allowed eight earned runs and 13 hits in 20.1 innings this season. Not great numbers from either side and both teams are capable of pouring it on offensively. At Coors where the ball travels, this feels like a game where we're going to see a ton of offense. High total for a reason, but I'll still side with the over.
