It’s a battle in the NL West as the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies go head to head this August 4, 2022, at 9:40 AM (PST). Thursday’s game is part of their extended five-game series at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres.  

 

Colorado is currently in fifth place in NL West, recently replaced by the Arizona Diamondbacks in fourth place. Standing with a 46-60 win-loss record, the team has won three and lost seven of their last 10 games. In those three wins, two were gained from the Minnesota Twins, but that’s still not much to work with, especially against San Diego. If put side-by-side next to their competitors, the Padres have generally been the better team by a long shot; however, Colorado has an eight to three head-to-head advantage. 

 

On the other side of the diamond, the Padres haven't been their best either. Sixth in the MLB and second in the NL West, they’ve won 60 matches and lost 46. Their last victory as of this writing is in game one against the Colorado Rockies wherein it was a close 3-2. San Diego’s bullpen had quite the shaky July, but they’re steadily getting back on track. With their last three matchups with Colorado, the Padres have dominated 4-1, 13-5, and 3-2 for games one, two, and three respectively. Now that they’ve surpassed the Toronto Blue Jays on the board for sixth, higher effort is needed to permeate the top five spots. The Atlanta Braves are the next target to topple over with a record of 63-41, so it will definitely be a feat for the Padres. 

 

The Padres have already piled on Colorado for the last three games, so in terms of the upcoming game, the Rockies need to play better offensively as they’ve struggled in that department all year. With San Diego’s strong pitching staff, they’ll be capable of breaking through the Rockies if they don’t improve fast. Though even then, they’ll only be able to fend off San Diego for so long. The Padres have their weaknesses, but they know how to work around them and produce wins. The fourth game belongs to the San Diego Padres, and we don’t see it happening any other way. We just hope the Rockies give them a good fight and go down with dignity. 

 

9:40 AM (PST), Thursday, 4 August 2022. Petco Park, San Diego, CA.
