Rockies look to keep momentum going
After winning the series in Los Angeles, the Rockies travel south for a series against the San Diego Padres for the final time this year. The season series stands at 3-4, so the Rockies would need to sweep this series to own the tiebreaker in the event that they were to tie the Padres for the second NL West playoff spot. If the Rockies and Padres tied the season series as well, then the tiebreaker would go to the better divisional record. As of now, the Padres are sitting four games ahead of Colorado.
Kyle Freeland (2-1, 4.09 ERA) takes the mound tonight for his ninth start of the year. He’s coming off of his shortest outing last Wednesday when he went only two innings and gave up four runs off of eight hits to the Giants. A big struggle for the lefty this season has been with runners on, allowing an OBA of .369.
For the Padres, it’ll be the third-year man Dinelson Lamet (2-1, 2.62 ERA). The righty has been San Diego’s most consistent pitcher all season. Lamet has not given up more than three runs in a single game and limits hits extremely well, giving up an average of three hits per start.
