The Padres are 7-19 in their last 26 Saturday games, 0-5 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 4-1 in Lauer's last 5 starts. The Rockies are 53-26 in their last 79 home games, 2-10 in their last 12 Saturday games and 13-3 in Marquez's last 16 home starts.

Lauer has an ERA of 6.84 and a .263 allowed batting average on the road this season. In 41 at bats against current Rockies, Lauer is allowing a .317 batting average and 11 RBI. Marquez has allowed 12 hits and 12 runs in his last 11 innings, and he has a 5.06 ERA and .303 allowed batting average at home. Throw in the fact these teams scored 28 runs last night and played 12 innings, and the bullpens are dealing with tired arms. Give me the over in what should be another high scoring game.
