Rockies Preview

The Colorado Rockies are 2-0 this season after they won Game 2 of this series by a score of 4-1 on Friday night. Colorado also won Game 1 of this series by a score of 7-2. The Colorado pitching staff has a 1.50 ERA, a 0.83 WHIP, and a .197 opponent batting average this season. The Rockies offense has scored 11 runs with a .329 batting average and a .369 on base percentage. C.J. Cron is batting .714 with two home runs and five RBI’s for the Rockies this season. The projected starting pitching for Colorado is Jose Urena, who was 3-8 with a 5.01 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP last year. 

Padres Preview

The San Diego Padres are 0-2 this season after losing on Thursday and Friday night. The Padres have really struggled to get the offense going against a Colorado pitching staff that was not supposed to be very good this year. The San Diego pitching staff has a 5.50 ERA, a 1.67 WHIP, and a .329 opponent batting average. The Padres offense has scored three runs with a .197 batting average and a .227 on base percentage this year.

Colorado is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the NL West and 7-19 in their last 26 game three’s of a series. The under is 7-2 in Colorado’s last 9 Saturday games. San Diego is 5-3 in their last 8 games against the NL West and 0-5 in their last 5 games. The over is 4-0-1 in San Diego’s last 5 Saturday games. Colorado is 9-17 in these two teams last 26 head to head meetings in San Diego. 


Colorado has stunned San Diego in the first two games of this series and they will be looking to make it three in a row here. San Diego has not hit the ball very well at all to start the year, but will have a chance to bounce back against Urena, who has not been very good in recent years. On the flip side, the Rockies are batting over .300 in the first two games of the season and have to be feeling confident. I think we are going to see some runs in this game and I like the over.
