San Diego has a losing road record and is on a 3-9 run away from home. San Diego has James Shields going, but they are playing bad baseball, on a 2-7 run. The Padres are also just 6-13 in Shields' last 19 starts. San Diego is last in baseball in on-base percentage and 8-26 when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game. The Colorado Rockies have done better than that, smoking them the last two games and looking for the sweep after winning 7-4 and 10-2. Colorado has won six of nine with an offense that is seventh in baseball in runs scored and second in slugging. Rockies starter Kyle Kendrick continued his strong September when he allowed two runs and three hits in five innings at Seattle en route to winning his second straight start. He has given up a total of six runs in three outings this month. Colorado is 10-4 vs. a right-handed starter, while the Padres are 4-10 at Coors Field. Play Colorado. Also take the UNDER. San Diego is averaging just 4.1 runs per game (3.8 in day games) which leaves a lot for Colorado to score here. As high-scoring as the Rockies can be, they are 19-6 to the UNDER the past three seasons following back-to-back division home wins. This total is set very high, so back the UNDER.
