Juan Nicasio will be looking for his 9th win tonight as the Colorado Rockies face the San Diego Padres in PETCO Park. For both teams, a series win has only symbolic meaning at this point, as both San Diego and Colorado are out of contention. The Rockies are currently in 3rd place but are recovering from a series loss against Los Angeles. In Nicasio's last start, he gave up 6 earned runs as he was handed the loss against Cincinnati.

The Padres are using tonight's game to look at their 23-year-old pitching prospect who is ranked pretty high in their farm system. Burch Smith holds a 5-1 record and a 3.39 ERA with AAA Tucson. He has moved quickly through their system, and shared time this year between Tucson and AA San Antonio. The formidable Chase Headley is anticipated to be in the lineup after he made his return on Wednesday.
