The Line: Colorado Rockies / San Diego Padres -- Over/Under:
The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres meet Sunday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Colorado Rockies could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Rockies have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Colorado Rockies have lost four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 135 hits and 87 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 255 hits and 130 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 10-5 with a 4.82 ERA and 154 strikeouts this season. Marquez is 4-2 with a 5.13 ERA and 60 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The San Diego Padres have won six of their last eight 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 221 hits and 123 RBI. Dinelson Lamet gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 3.90 ERA and 42 strikeouts this season. This will be Lamet’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 10-4 in their last 14 during game 4 of a series, 3-13 in their last 16 vs. National League West and 2-5 in Marquezs last 7 starts. The Padres are 37-77 in their last 114 Sunday games and 4-10 in their last 14 home games. The Rockies are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and 5-2 in Marquezs last 7 starts vs. Padres. The over is 4-1 in Padres last 5 home games. The over is 4-1 in Marquezs last 5 starts overall.
Marquez has allowed 43 hits and 28 earned runs in his last 39.2 innings, and he has a 3.53 ERA and .209 allowed batting average on the road. Lamet has allowed 25 hits and 13 earned runs in his last 30 innings, and he has a 6.30 ERA and .250 allowed batting average in 10 innings at home. The Colorado Rockies have an advantage here given that Marquez has been pretty solid when you take him out of Coors. However, I want nothing to do with the Rockies as a team. The San Diego Padres are playing better baseball and last nights victory should have a carryover impact on this one. Give me the home team.
