The Padres might have the edge in pitching in this one, as Dinelson Lamet has been one of the most consistent arms in the NL and is yet to allow more than three earned runs in any given game this season. The Rockies will counter with Kyle Freeland, who enters this matchup with a solid, yet unspectacular, 4.09 ERA.
