Gray, Dahl lead Rockies over Padres, 5-2

The San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in Major League Baseball action at Coors Field.

Denver Former Midview pitcher Eric Lauer had a rough introduction to the major leagues on April 24 as the Colorado Rockies scored seven runs against him in three innings on their way to an 8-0 win over San Diego.

The Padres got one more run off Wade Davis in the ninth. In the 20 innings since that offensive explosion, they have eight hits.

Tyson Ross will get the nod for the fifth time of the season, targeting win number three. DJ LeMahieu leads the Rockies with 29 hits and 12 RBI while Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 47 hits and 27 RBI.

In fact, Cavnar is only the second woman ever to do play-by-play for a regular season contest, joining Gayle Gardner, who called a 1993 game between the Rockies and Cincinnati Reds.

The Padres hope to have him back in the lineup Friday, manager Andy Green said before Tuesday's game against the Colorado Rockies. Also, the Padres' bullpen has also been terrific, sporting a 2.68 ERA. The Padres are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Colorado, 1-4 in Ross' last 5 road starts vs. Rockies and the under is 4-1 in Ross' last 5 road starts vs. Rockies. The 2014 SwampBat alum finished with three-plus innings pitched with three strikeouts against the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies have been inconsistent at the plate, and Ross has been stellar in two straight starts, and the under is 21-10 in the Rockies' last 31 home games. Lauer has made three starts in Triple-A this year and turned in a 3.00 ERA with a 19-to-6 K/BB ratio and a 40.9 percent ground-ball rate. I know the Padres find ways to lose and aren't a team you should be looking to back, but there's value with the plus money given just how bad Gray has been in his last few starts.
