The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres meet Wednesday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after splitting their last six games. The Rockies have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last seven games. The Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 51 hits and 30 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 89 hits and 46 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 3.33 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 7-1 with a 2.73 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Padres have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 15 games. The Padres have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Fernando Tatis Jr. leads the Padres with 53 hits and 39 RBI while Manny Machado and Trent Grisham have combined for 97 hits and 56 RBI. Zach Davies gets the ball, and he is 6-2 with a 2.23 ERA and 42 strikeouts this season. Davies is 3-2 with a 3.16 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 6-13 in their last 19 Wednesday games, 5-12 in their last 17 games as an underdog and 19-39 in their last 58 road games. The Padres are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 8-2 in their last 10 home games and 15-5 in their last 20 overall. The under is 4-1 in Padres last 5 overall. The Rockies are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in San Diego and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
The San Diego Padres continue their hot stretch of baseball, and they should like their chances here as well with Zach Davies allowing 10 earned runs and 27 hits in his last 43.1 innings. The Colorado Rockies are a hit or miss team and while Senzatela has had a great deal of success against the Padres in his career, I'm not stepping in front of San Diego in its current form. Give me the Padres and the RL for max betting value.
