He has a 1-3 record with an ERA of 3.77 and 25 strikeouts in 5 appearances against the Padres in his career.
San Diego Padres
The Padres get here with a 49-38 record and lost 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.34 runs per game and they're batting for .239 AVG, have 378 runs scored in 704 hits and 70 home runs, ranking #16 in offense in the league behind the Chicago Cubs. Manny Machado is leading the team with 14 home runs and 50 RBI and a batting average of .309.
Defensively they are allowing 3.91 runs per game and rank #7 in the league. Joe Musgrove leads the pitching staff with a 2.09 ERA, 98 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Padres.
Sean Manaea (3-4, 4.18 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 1st game of the series. Manaea took the loss in Monday's 8-2 loss to the Mariners, allowing four runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out three batters in 3.1 innings. He is 0-2 with an ERA of 5.06 and 12 strikeouts in 2 appearances against the Rockies in his career.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of San Diego's last 5 games on the road.
San Diego Padres are 0-10 SU in their last 10 games when playing on the road against Colorado.
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Colorado's last 10 games against San Diego.
Colorado Rockies are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games at home.
The Padres have lost 7 of their last 10 games but they have had some tough series against teams like the Dodgers, Mariners and Giants. They have also struggled against the Rockies losing 5 of the last 7 head to head games this season and 10 straight games at Colorado. They'll send Sean Manaea to the mound who has been up and down this season an has allowed 14 runs in his last 19.1 innings pitched. The Rockies have been decent at home so far this season with a 23-21 record and will send Urena to the mound who had a great game against the Dodgers. The Padres have struggled offensively but this line is indicating something else, if CJ Cron and Kris Bryant don't play I'd definitely hit the Padres with the run line but if they play I'd consider taking the Rockies with the run line.
PICK: Padres -1.5 (+105)
