The Line: San Diego Padres +130 / Colorado Rockies -149 -- Over/Under: 12.5
The San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies meet Sunday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The San Diego Padres could use a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Padres have scored 30 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The San Diego Padres have lost five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 77 hits and 46 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 119 hits and 71 RBI. Nick Margevicius gets the ball, and he is 2-6 with a 5.02 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Margevicius is 0-2 with a 10.00 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored 35 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Colorado Rockies have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 89 hits and 57 RBI while Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 161 hits and 91 RBI. Peter Lambert gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. This will be Lambert’s first career game against the Padres.
The Padres are 34-72 in their last 106 Sunday games, 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Rockies are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 4 of a series, 6-1 in their last 7 vs. National League West and 16-5 in their last 21 home games. The Padres are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Colorado and 2-7 in the last 9 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Rockies last 7 Sunday games. The over is 4-0-1 in Margevicius' last 5 starts overall.
The Colorado Rockies continue to tear the cover off the ball at home, and now they get to face a Padres pitcher in Margevicius who has allowed 18 earned runs in his last 21.1 innings and is allowing a .272 batting average on the season. While he has just 12 career innings under his belt, Lambert has given up just seven hits and two runs while striking out 12, and both of those games came against a hot Chicago Cubs offense. Either way, the Rockies offense is too hot to bet against. Give me the home team again.
