Preview

The Colorado Rockies and the San Diego Padres will play the 2nd game of the series at the Coors Field on Saturday night. The Rockies outscored the Padres 10-4 on Friday game to take the lead on the series.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 28-37 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.4 runs while allowing 5.5 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 16 home runs, 49 RBI and batting for a .291 AVG.

Chad Khul leads the pitching staff with a 3.69 ERA, 49 strikeouts and 4 wins recorded for the Rockies.

Probable Pitcher: 

German Marquez (3-5, 6.09 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 2nd game of the series. Marquez took the win in a 4-2 victory over San Diego on Sunday, pitching seven innings and surrendering two runs on six hits with six strikeouts. He is 9-3 with an ERA of 4.31 and 102 strikeouts in 16 appearances against the Padres in his career.

San Diego Padres

The Padres get here with a 41-25 record and have won 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.4 runs per game with a .233 at bat while allowing 3.61 runs. Manny Machado is leading the team with 11 home runs and 44 RBI and a batting average of .327.

Joe Musgrove leads the pitching staff with a 1.59 ERA, 81 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Padres.

Probable Pitcher:

Nick Martinez (2-3, 3.74 ERA) will start for the Padres in the 2nd game of the series. Martinez did not factor into the decision in Game 1 of a doubleheader against Colorado on Saturday, but he struck out nine batters in 5.2 innings while allowing just one run on five hits and three walks. He has an ERA of 6.75 and 13 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Rockies in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

San Diego are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

San Diego are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games when playing on the road against Colorado.

Colorado are 5-10 SU in their last 15 games.

Colorado are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Prediction

The Rockies offense exploded on Friday game to beat the Padres 10-4 and they have won the last 8 games at home against them. German Marquez has dominated the Padres in his career with a 9-3 record. The Padres will send Nick Martinez who held the Rockies to only 1 run across 5 innings earlier this season. With the Padres struggling at the Coors Field and this pitching matchup I like the under. 

PICK: Under 11.5 (-110)
