The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres meet Saturday in MLB action at Petco Park.

The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing seven of their last nine games. The Rockies have scored seven runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have split their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 135 hits and 65 RBI while Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story have combined for 251 hits and 150 RBI. Chi Chi Gonzalez gets the ball, and he is 0-4 with a 5.95 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. This will be Gonzalez’s first career game against the Padres.

The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Padres have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The San Diego Padres have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 126 hits and 78 RBI while Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. have combined for 219 hits and 122 RBI. Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 7-5 with a 3.19 ERA and 110 strikeouts this season. This will be Paddack’s first career game against the Rockies.

The Rockies are 5-17 in their last 22 Saturday games, 3-12 in their last 15 vs. National League West and 0-4 in Gonzalezs last 4 starts. The Padres are 16-38 in their last 54 during game 3 of a series, 3-10 in their last 13 home games and 9-22 in their last 31 Saturday games. The Rockies are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in San Diego. The over is 7-3 in Padres last 10 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Rockies last 5 overall.

Gonzalez has just 19.2 innings under his belt this season, and he hasn't been good while also displaying a serious control issue. Paddack has allowed 18 hits and 11 earned runs in his last 27.2 innings, and he has a 2.28 ERA and .163 allowed batting average at home this season. The San Diego Padres have a clear pitching advantage in this contest, as Paddack has been money all year at home. I have to side with the Padres.
