Rockies Game #10: Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres

New, 1213 comments

The first time the Rockies faced the Padres, they swept the opponents at Coors field. For the second series of the season, the Padres will host in their own ball park. Will the Rockies be able to revive their offensive sparks or will it get stifled in San Diego?

Dustin Bradford

In their first series against San Diego, the Rockies outscored the Padres 20-6 in their home opening sweep. Since that series, the Padres offense has been able to ramp it up a bit although they ultimately lost the series against Los Angeles. The Rockies offense, meanwhile, has been stifled so far in California (more on this here) and in the last 3 games against their respective opponents, Colorado has been outscored by San Diego 14-8.

Will this trend continue? Or will the Rockies again be able to make a mockery of San Diego's pitching and defense? The Rockies will get their first opportunity tonight as Jon Garland takes the mound against Tyler Ross.
