The Line: Colorado Rockies -155 / San Diego Padres +145 --- Over/Under: 10.5
The San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The San Diego Padres could use a bounce back victory here after losing six of their last eight games. The Padres have allowed 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The San Diego Padres have lost eight of their last 10 games when allowing more than one run. Offensively, Jose Pirela leads the Padres with 28 hits and 10 RBI while Eric Hosmer and Christian Villanueva have combined for 44 hits and 20 RBI. Tyson Ross gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. Ross is 1-5 with a 3.54 ERA and 55 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies also need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Rockies have scored 20 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in five straight games. The Colorado Rockies have won six of their last nine games when scoring more than two runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Rockies with 29 hits and 12 RBI while Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 47 hits and 27 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 1-4 with a 7.09 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. Gray is 5-3 with a 2.88 ERA and 95 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 7-15 in their last 22 road games, 1-8 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series and 3-7 in Ross' last 10 starts. The Rockies are 3-7 in their last 10 Wednesday games, 1-4 in Grays last 5 home starts and 1-5 in Grays last 6 starts. The Padres are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Colorado, 1-4 in Ross' last 5 road starts vs. Rockies and the under is 4-1 in Ross' last 5 road starts vs. Rockies.
Ross has been really solid lately, allowing just one earned run and striking out 15 guys in his last 13.2 innings. Gray has allowed five or more earned runs in each of his last three starts and has an ERA of 11.70 with an allowed batting average of .391 in 10 innings at home. I know the Padres find ways to lose and aren't a team you should be looking to back, but there's value with the plus money given just how bad Gray has been in his last few starts.
