Rating: 2 Unit MLB Free Pick - Colorado at San Diego
Today, the Padres hope to avoid losing the third game of a four-game series to the Rockies, who hold an overall 8-7 edge on San Diego this season. Paddack had been scheduled to start Sunday. Tatis was supposed to be at shortstop. And to make the immediate matters even worse, Sunday afternoon's pitching pairing of Colorado left-hander Austin Gomber (8-5, 3.69 ERA) against Padres' rookie spot starter Reiss Knehr (0-0, 4.91 ERA) clearly favors the visitors. Here is the line to contemplate -- Gomber already has faced the Padres three times this season. In those games, he is 1-0 with a 0.47 ERA, having pitched 19 1/3 innings and giving up two runs (one earned) on 12 hits and two walks with 17 strikeouts. Overall, the 27-year-old Gomber, who was the Rockies main return from the Cardinals in the Feb. 1 Nolan Arenado trade, has made 17 starts, giving up 43 runs (37 earned) on 69 hits and 26 walks with 86 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings.
Rockies vs Padres Free Pick August 1, 2021
Wins have been hard to come by outside of Coors Field for the Rockies who are a pathetic 13-39 on the road in 2021.
Rockies' left-hander Austin Gomber (8-5, 3.69 ERA) has posted a 1.98 ERA at home, but he has a 4.83 ERA on the road.
Padres' rookie right-hander Reiss Knehr (0-0, 8.44 ERA) has only 3 2/3 big league innings under his belt, and they came against Colorado on July 9, a game the Padres won 4-2. I expect a repeat.
Free pick on San Diego Padres.
