The MLB is back in action today a the Colorado Rockies will clash with the San Diego Padres. This is game four of a four-game series.
The Rockies will give the nod to German Marquez and he will be opposed by Dinelson Lamet.
Colorado Rockies Form
The Rockies are not playing well at the moment. Moreover, their pitching is not good enough at the moment and their offensive game is at a low level at the moment. In the same time, their main offensive problem on the road is their offence, which has averaged just 4.15. The Rockies will enter that game with 8.5 games out of the 2nd wildcard slot in the National League. Therefore, it is safe to say that they have a mountain to climb.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rockies score an average of 5.27 runs per game which is the 7th record in the league in scoring. Also, they are 5th in hitting at .267 and 22nd in homers with 148. On the mound, they are placed on the 29th in the league in ERA at 5.55, while also ranking 30th in WHIP at 1.48 and 25th in K’s with 931.
San Diego Padres Form
The Padres are not playing well at the moment. Moreover, the Padres will enter their game on Saturday night sitting 21.5 games out of first in the division. However, they are just 6.0 games out of the 2nd wildcard slot in the NL. They need to win these game against the Rockies if they want to get into the playoffs this season. And after this series, the Padres have three at home against the Rays, followed by three at Philly and three at Cincinnati. But the hard part comes later as they will be facing the Red Sox and the commanding Dodgers.
On the offensive side of the game, the Padres score an average of 4.50 runs per game which is the 23rd record in the league in scoring. Also, they are placed on the 21st in hitting at .246 and 12th in homers with 176. On the mound, they are placed on the 17th in the league in ERA at 4.52. Additionally, they are ranking 6th in WHIP at 1.28 and 12th in K’s with 1219.
I expect the Rockies to win this game. They have better offensive firepower and they are the better team this season. They need to keep winning in order to stay in the mix for a playoff spot, although it will be very hard to get a wildcard. Take the Rockies in this one.
