The San Diego Padres come into this one looking to bounce back after falling flat with a 7-4 loss at the hands of the Rockies in Tuesday’s matchup.

Padres vs. Rockies Prediction

I’m on the over here. I’m not trusting Matt Waldron as far as I can throw him, especially in his first Coors Field start. The Rockies’ bats come alive a lot more frequently at home and I definitely think they can break a few runs off of Waldron in this start. On the other side, I’m not entirely sure that it matters who the Rockies start here, I think the Padres crack a few and scratch a few runs across. I think we’re headed for a fairly high-scoring affair on Wednesday, so give me the over here.
