Colorado Rockies vs San Diego Padres Prediction

I’ll probably stay with the Padres here. The line’s a bit thick to mess with, though. Vasquez has two pretty good starts in his last trio and one bad one. In the two good ones Vasquez posted 9.1 total innings with two earned on 10 hits and one walk. In the bad one he had four earned in 2.2 innings on six hits and two walks. Vasquez is 0-1 in those three, though.

On Sunday the Padres had a pretty nice all-around effort. Xander Bogaerts mashed a solo homer among two hits, and Jackson Merrill went 3-for-4 with a run. The pitching staff was great across the board as well. I like San Diego to ride the momentum into this series.
