The Rockies sit just 0.5 game behind the Diamondbacks and Dodgers for first place in the National League West. With the D-backs and Dodgers playing against each other today, a Rockies win would mean advancing 0.5 game against one of those teams. They should do that.
Who better to turn to for that other than Kyle Freeland. He gets the start for the Rockies. The Padres will give the ball to righty Jacob Nix.
Start time: 2:10 MT
