The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres meet Monday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Rockies have cored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five straight games. The Rockies have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 51 hits and 30 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 82 hits and 42 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 4.09 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 3-3 with a 3.98 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 15 games. The Padres have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Padres have won 14 of their last 15 games when scoring four or more runs. Fernando Tatis Jr. leads the Padres with 52 hits and 39 RBI while Manny Machado and Trent Grisham have combined for 92 hits and 53 RBI. Dinelson Lamet gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 2.62 ERA and 57 strikeouts this season. Lamet is 0-2 with a 4.80 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 road games, 5-11 in their last 16 games as an underdog and 7-15 in their last 22 overall. The Padres are 7-2 in their last 9 home games, 11-2 in their last 13 during game 1 of a series and 5-0 in their last 5 Monday games. The over is 4-1 in Rockies last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Padres last 5 home games. The Rockies are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in San Diego.
Kyle Freeland has allowed 18 runs and 47 hits in his last 38 innings while Dinelson Lamet has allowed 11 earned runs and 18 hits in his last 34.2 innings. The San Diego Padres have the pitching advantage here, are playing the better baseball overall and have the rest advantage, as the Rockies played late last night and now to play again in a new city. There's a lot leaning toward the Padres here, so give me San Diego and the RL for max betting value.
