San Diego Padres vs Colorado Rockies (By: Mulder)
Wrote about the Pads a lot in spring training and as expected they are off to a great start with a 11-6 record. Superstar Machado filled that power gap of course but Kinsler, Hosmer Margot, Renfroe and Myers are killing it as well.
They start with Joey Lucchesi on the mound. The southpaw is 2-1 with a 4.40 ERA, but what i like here is that he pitched MUCH better with a 10.67 K/9, 3.14 BB/9.
Even in the outing against the Giants, where he allowed 7 earned runs, he pitched a 2.65 FIP (!).
He pitched really well against the Rockies last season. In 22 innings pitched: 2.05 ERA> 1.00 WHIP.
For Colorado we will see RHP Senzatela on the mound. He pitched just for AAA this season with a 2.57 ERA in 7.0 innings but poor stuff even for the minors: 5.14 K/9.
In his career against the Pads:
2017: 3.20 ERA> 1.12 WHIP
2018: 4.05 ERA> 1.43 WHIP
Rockies just with an .197 BA against Southpaws ( 27th ). Hence taking the red hot Pads.
