|Date & Time||Friday June 14, 2019, 8:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: San Diego Padres / Colorado Rockies -- Over/Under:
The San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies meet Friday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The San Diego Padres could use a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Padres have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The San Diego Padres have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 74 hits and 41 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 113 hits and 69 RBI. Cal Quantrill gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 4.85 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. This will be Quantrill’s first career game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Rockies have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have won 13 of their last 16 games when scoring more than one run. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 87 hits and 57 RBI while Trevor Story and David Dahl have combined for 148 hits and 74 RBI. Jeff Hoffman gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 8.06 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. Hoffman is 1-1 with a 0.77 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 9-4 in their last 13 Friday games, 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 1-4 in Quantrill's last 5 starts. The Rockies are 5-0 in their last 5 vs. National League West, 20-8 in their last 28 home games and 1-6 in Hoffman's last 7 starts with 4 days of rest. The Padres are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Colorado and 1-6 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Hoffman's last 5 starts overall. The over is 4-0 in Quantrill's last 4 starts overall.
Quantrill has allowed 14 earned runs through 26 innings this season and a .277 batting average, things you don't want to see when having to pitch in Coors for the first time. Hoffman has allowed no less than three runs in each of his six games and he's allowing a .314 batting average on the season. Through 15 innings at home, Hoffman has a 7.20 ERA and a .333 allowed batting average. While the pitching matchup isn't the best and it's a game you should probably consider the over, I still give the edge to the Colorado Rockies based on their consistent offense and this ridiculous home stretch they've been on. The San Diego Padres also can't seem to get out of their own way.
