If they keep Wade Davis out of the game, I like the Rockies' chances of evening this series. The Rockies were on a four-game win streak until the Padres beat up Davis and rallied to defeat Colorado on Friday.
Even with that win, San Diego is only 5-13 in its last 18 road games. The Padres also are 13-40 versus a lefty starter when on the road. Colorado is pitching southpaw Kyle Freeland, who has plenty of experience with Coors Field and pitching in Denver's thin air. Freeland was solid in his first start this season giving up two runs on four hits in six innings during a 5-2 win against the Rangers this past Sunday.
Eric Hosmer has missed the past three games for the Padres due to sickness.
San Diego is starting Joey Lucchesi, a lower-tier pitcher with a 4.71 lifetime ERA in four career starts at Coors.
