Padres vs Rockies Betting Outlook

Ike Hilliard hit an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh to break a 6-6 tie Wednesday night and Jose Iglesias added a two-run single in the three-run inning to lift the Rockies past the Padres.

Iglesias homered for the Rockies and finished 3 for 5 with six RBIs. Hilliard also had three hits while Charlie Blackmon, Grichuk and Elias Diaz added two each.

Cron (wrist) did not start for the fourth time in five games but had a pinch-hit single in the seventh and finished the game at first base. Reliever Jesus Colome was unavailable with a slightly strained right hamstring but could be ready to return Thursday.

Jake Cronenworth homered for the Padres and went 2 for 3 with a double, three runs scored and two RBIs. Eric Hosmer also had two hits and drove in two runs and Nomar Mazara had two hits.

The Padres activated left-handed relief pitcher Adrian Morejon from the injured list prior to the game and he allowed one run in one inning. Left shoulder inflammation had kept Morejon out of action since June 23. Reiss Knehr was optioned to Triple-A El Paso.

Morejon has had some trouble with the Rockies this season.

Padres vs Rockies Prediction

It has been a rough season for Snell, but he finally put together a dominant outing his next time out and his expected season statistics are solid. Let’s go with him to make it two wins in a row despite the Rockies dominance over the Padres at Coors Field this year.

Pick: Padres ML (-136)
