For the eighth time in this young sim season, the SimRockies will be back in action against the SimPadres, but tonight they will be looking for vindication after blowing an 8-2 lead they held until the seventh inning before falling 9-8 on Tuesday. The Rockies (8-8) will be hoping Jon Gray can go the distance to avoid relying on a bullpen that collapsed Tuesday. Gray is 1-2 on the season with a 3.60 ERA and 1.330 WHIP. Gray faced some bad luck in his last start on April 8 when he took a line drive to the groin and left the game after 3 2/3 innings. Luckily, the injury wasn’t serious enough to cause Gray to miss any time.
Joey Luchhesi will be on the mound for the NL West-leading Padres.
Start Time: 8:15 p.m. MT
Tonight’s game ran into some video technical problems (still blame the squirrels) and video will be available from the fourth inning to the end. However, the play-by-play is available throughout and is again top notch.
