San Diego Padres Team Preview

The San Diego Padres come into this one looking to build on their series-opening 3-1 win over the Rockies in Monday’s matchup. It was a tight affair throughout before a two-run 8th inning put the Padres in front for good and San Diego rode that lead to the finish line as Colorado’s offense fell flat once again. Fernando Tatis Jr. leads the Padres with 6 home runs and 15 RBIs while Ha-Seong Kim has 3 home runs, 13 RBIs as well as a pair of triples and 3 doubles along with a team-high 6 stolen bases. Luis Campusano and Jurickson Profar each have a team-high 6 doubles while Jackson Merrill has a team-high 26 hits and a .317 batting average. Manny Machado also has the dubious distinction of leading the Padres with 24 strikeouts this season. Michael King will start for the Padres here and is 2-1 with a 3.33 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. This will be King’s first career start against the Rockies. The Padres will take on the Phillies after this series.

Padres vs. Rockies Prediction

I’m on the under here. I think Monday was the first of many examples for me this season of where I’m simply going to fade the over just because it’s a high total at Coors Field. Feltner has been inconsistent this year, but his best start of the season was his only start at home and he has decent career numbers against the Padres. King’s had issues with Walks, but he’s been solid more often than not and I simply don’t trust Colorado’s offense to be able to do much of anything in this game when all is said and done. I think this total’s just too high simply because this game is in Colorado, so give me the under here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
