Picks & Predictions: Padres vs Rockies 7/31/2023

July 31, 2023


Game Preview


The Colorado Rockies will host the San Diego Padres for a three-game series beginning this Friday at Coors Field, and won their initial meeting 6-3. As both teams battle for playoff positions, this should be an intense and high-scoring affair.


Even after an inconsistent start to their season, the Padres remain an unlikely candidate for a wild card spot in the National League. Their recent statement sweep of the Rangers has attracted plenty of betting attention; and now sit 8 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in terms of the NL West standings. San Diego pitched superbly versus the MLB team with the most runs scored, letting in just 4 runs in the entire series. This year, the bullpen for San Diego is sporting a 3.70 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, with a .236 opponent batting average. With a .238 batting average and a .327 on-base percentage, the Padres lineup has generated 481 runs.


San Diego will likely turn to lefty Seth Lugo for this matchup with Colorado. Lugo has been outstanding this season and boasts an outstanding track record against them; giving up just one run against them during their one meeting so far. He has been excellent, giving up no more than 2 runs in 3 of his last 4 starts, and maintains a 4-5 record with a 3.62 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, over 82 innings pitched.



The Rockies continue to be constantly underwhelming in 2023 even with acquiring some quality talent during the off-season, and after compiling a 4-6 record in their last 10 matches, it’s obvious that this is a squad prepared for their campaign to end. The Rockies are sporting a 6-8 record in their last 14 home matches, but having an opportunity to end a divisional rival’s playoff chances, we might see their greatest showing in this series.


On the Rockies side of things, right-hander Austin Gomber will take to the mound in this game. Gomber has been pitching better recently, giving up 2 runs or less in 3 of his 4 appearances in July, but he now has a disappointing 5.83 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and an 8-8 record over 108 innings played for the season.
