Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres Pick – MLB June 11, 2022

The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres will do it all over on Saturday night at Petco Park for the second of a doubleheader. The Rockies needed a fresh start after getting blasted away, 9-0.

They were beaten in all facets of the game, with Joe Musgrove allowing 4 hits and 6 innings. The bullpen carried the rest of the workload, as the Rockies managed just one more hit. San Diego advanced to 36-22 and just a game behind the Dodgers with the win.

The Dodgers look ripe to lose the NL West this season. San Diego has the Dodgers right where they want them this season.

The first game of the doubleheader is currently underway at Petco Park. They are tied up in the bottom of the 6th, 1-1.

The offense has been slow for the Padres, as they have just one hit, though good for a run from Trent Grisham.

Colorado is in tough company in the NL West. They have a 12-game disadvantage behind the Dodgers for the top spot. Not much will change for the Rox.

Kyle Freeland and MacKenzie Gore are scheduled to receive the starting call in the evening matchup at Petco Park.

Rockies vs. Padres Prediction:

The Rockies are the second-best team in the majors, with a team average of .258. They’re tenth in the major leagues with 4.62 runs per 9 innings. That sounds nice, though their numbers fall greatly on the road.

They are hitting .252 with 2.92 runs per 9 innings on the road. That’s a considerably drop and the air in Denver isn’t the only explanation.

The power numbers are better at home, which is to be expected, and they’re making much better contact at home as well. Overall, the Rockies have scored 3.83 runs per 9 frames through their last ten.

MacKenzie Gore is entering tonight with an ERA of 1.50 and a 1.06 WHIP. The lefty has appeared in nine games through 48 innings.

There is a push to get Gore to the All-Star Game and he fully deserves those honors.

Gore is going into this one with an ERA of 0.47 and a 0.84 WHIP in his previous three trips to the mound. The pitching staff as a whole has been effective, with a .215 average against for second in the majors.

Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres Betting Trends:

Rockies

  • Record (Last 10): 3-7
  • 2-7 overall in their previous nine games versus a left-handed starter
  • 8-24 overall in their previous 32 games as an underdog
  • 4-9 overall in their previous 13 games versus a team with a winning record
  • 8-20 overall in their previous 28 games versus the NL West
  • 4-12 overall in their previous 16 games versus the Padres

Padres

  • Record (Last 10): 6-4
  • 6-1 overall in their previous seven games
  • 6-2 overall in their previous eight third game of a series
  • 10-2 overall in their previous 12 games versus a left-handed starter
  • 4-0 overall in their previous four games versus the NL West
  • 4-1 overall in their previous five games versus a team with a losing record

  • MacKenzie is likely going to remain hot at home tonight. The onus will be on Kyle Freeland to keep the Rockies in this one. Even if Freeland is sharp, the second-worst bullpen in the majors should hurt the Rockies tonight on a doubleheader day.

    Freeland has an ERA of 4.53 and a 1.47 WHIP going into Petco Park.

    The Padres have been better against lefties this season, with a BA of .247 as opposed to a .230 versus the righties. They should have some success against Freeland tonight.

    Freeland dealt with multiple ailments last year. His whole body seemed to be banged up. He ultimately completed 23 starts, though, with a 4.33 ERA and 1.42 WHIP.

    This is exactly consistent with what Freeland did the year before, with the same ERA of 4.33 and 1.42 WHIP. He’s been in the same form this season, as he is in the same territory.

    Gore is the most underrated pitcher in baseball and should continue thriving. After his offense was cold during the afternoon hours, expect them to wake up and provide some run support. I like the Padres at even money on the runline.
