The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres go at it one last time for 2012 at 2:05 this afternoon at Petco Park in San Diego. The Rockies send right-hander Alex White (2-8, 5.18) up against another Padres’ rookie, lefty Andrew Werner (2-1, 2.59). Colorado will look to win just its second series in September, San Diego its fourth.
White will once again be trying to gain better command of his pitches to extend his outing. He’s made it only 4 innings or less in 8 of his 9 starts since returning from Colorado Springs. Werner by contrast has pitched 6 in each of his four major league starts of 2012.
Jordan Pacheco is back in the lineup for the Rockies, hitting clean-up and catching. Andrew Brown is in right-field batting 6th, and Matt McBride is 7th at 1st-base. Everth Cabrera is back at shortstop for the Padres, leading-off. Will Venable will be in right-field, Alexi Amarista in left, and John Baker is behind the plate.
The weather will be more “San Diego-like” at Petco. It’ll be sunny and clear with temperatures hovering around 80°. Relative humidity will be in the mid-50s and wind will be blowing-out to left at 8 to 9 mph. TV’s on ROOT with Drew and George. Jerry and Jack as always are covering on KOA 850 am.
